Very friendly and accommodating place. We were able to arrange a wine tasting for 14 people on short notice and had a wonderful experience there. The appetizers served with the wine were very good and the wines picked gave a nice balanced tasting. Would recommend it.

My husband and I stayed in a apartment just up the street from Il Pentagrappolo and ended a couple of our evenings there. We didn't get to experience any live music (which sounds like it would be awesome), but the wine and hospitality were en pointe. Such a cool spot! I want to go back right now! :-)

Really nice, relaxed atmosphere and a very friendly owner. Wines by the bottle or glass. Food is mainly cold meat and cheese dishes. Live jazz music on Fridays and Saturdays.

Walked into this place just by chance and had a very nice meal as we were not looking for a large meal. It's not your typical pasta place but a laid back wine bar with a suitable menu. So you can sit back and enjoy the food, atmosphere and music. All in all very enjoyable

The atmosphere is great, truly relaxing after long sightseeing. It is close to the Colosseum but not a tourist place, very nice and friendly. Recommend salads and the live music nights at weekends.

Keen on organic and natural wines? Go here. The passionate and friendly owner has an excellent range of - sometimes hardly heard of - wines, mainly coming from Italy. Some older vintages too which certainly adds value, we had an 08 Maremma for just €25 per bottle, excellent choice and peaking now. There was a guy playing some guitar music,... More

Stumbled upon this little wine bar after visiting the Colosseum. They have a good selection of reasonable priced wine by the glass, and an extensive range of other Italian wines by the bottle. Friendly owner who will pause to have a chat with you.

The host is a very pleasant man who is very excited to tell you about his wine and his food. I had a very enjoyable dinner my last night in Rome and this place far outshined the others in the touristy area where it is located.

Staying in Monti

Neighborhood Profile
Monti
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.
