We learned of the Merulana Cafe when we received breakfast vouchers for use there from the ColorHouse guesthouse. It is a nice little place with an upscale pub feel. Our free breakfasts were simple, but delicious. We visited for dessert and coffee one evening, as well. Judging by the number of people dining, including many large groups, this would be... More

Visited Rome in a group of 25 male rugby supporters for the Italy v England 6 Nations game. I had previously visited the Merulana Restaurant some 3 years ago with friends from Australia and had a superb meal so I decide to recommend this eatery as somewhere to finish of a great 5 day visit on the Sunday night. We... More

Beautiful little place that serves amazing authentic Italian food and situated just a small 5 minute walk from the colosseum. Food was not expensive and the service was great. Would recommend this place to anyone who wants to taste and experience Italy and Italian food at its best and it is not full of tourist which is even better.

This place was near our hotel, we passed by it a couple of times trying to find another restaurant that we had read about on trip advisor, when we couldn't find it we decided to give the Merulana cafe a go and it was the best decision we could have made. The food was great, the service excellent and very... More

Walking around we happened upon this great restaurant. Everything was excellent and great friendly service. If you like bacon try the chicken breast with bacon, or the bacon with pasta. Cute cosy atmosphere, inside or outside seating. I highly recommend! Everyone loved the mozzarella balls too!

While just walking around the streets close to our hotel, we fund a jewel of a restaurant! The service, food and prices were extraordinary and we visited twice more while in Rome 6 days.
