Nice lunch after Colosseum

Popular with locals at lunchtime, this enoteca and piano bar is a short walk from the Colosseum (about 500 metres). They have a lunch menu with a selection of sandwiches (on piadina or baguette) at about 7 euros each, and a special of the day, which was basmati rice with chicken curry (not very... read more

I was here because it was recommended on Tripadvisor and the fork, I had a carpaccio and and some cheese. Food was OK, wine was OK and it was nice sitting here listening to live music in a cosey athmosphere.

Went here late with Italian locals. Had a lovely time and got rather happy on wine and grappa. Limited menu but terrific selection of cured meats, cheeses and salads, from which we put together a delightful meal that we all shared. A gentleman on guitar kept us entertained without overpowering our conversation or vise versa. Service was a bit spotty... More

A place to eat late and enjoy the city's night life in a great neighborhood. The food is simple but good and reasonable prices. The is a real Piano and often a player to go along with it.

To begin, the wine was very nice. We had lunch there and they could give as a very nice wine for this occasion. The food was also very nice and the people were outstanding. I would really suggest stopping at this restaurant

We were underwhelmed with our experience here- but I would be prepared to try it again to be sure it wasn't just a one off - off pace night, considering how good the lunch time reviews are. The snacks were served by a harried woman cleaning out back. We came for an aperitivo, and wines were very good and well... More

We wandered into this little gem after touring the colosseum. We were hot and sweaty and this little place was dark and cool. They have a jazz music theme. There were also many locals here. I had a mixed plate of cured meat, arugula salad, and orzo/veggie salad. It was light, tasty, and filling. My husband had a ham and... More

We went to this restaurant on the recommendation of the owner of the apartment we were renting a couple of blocks away. It was our last day in Rome so we really wanted to have a good experience. This is a lovely restaurant with great food. The service was spot on. It was a wonderful way to end our vacation.

We came across this bar not far from the Colosseum and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the wine and light bites on offer. Friendly service and convivial decor and service. Good on price and service. Recommended for a relaxing drink and to escape the hustle and bustle of Rome.

Staying in Monti

Neighborhood Profile
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighborhood just west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets. The neighborhood supports unique and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
