So glad we stumbled upon this place!

Stumbled upon it late-ish one night ~ managed to get seats and really enjoyed our meal. Affordable and tasty food - even had some dessert. The waitress was friendly and even cracked a few jokes! Well worth a visit!

I could have cooked a better pasta. Too al dente. It looks like a ready meal too. They even rounded up the service charge from 2.10 to 3 euro. Bad service. Even the table next to mine rolled their eyes.

We arrived at 13:30 by 14:00 the place was packed. Everything was very reasonably priced especially the local wine served in a carafe. We enjoyed a delicious meal! When we left Italians were queuing to get in. We knew we had found a true gem.

Every time we visit Rome this is usually our first night restaurant. It's close to our favorite hotel and if we stop in early we can always get a table. It's tiny so plan accordingly as it fills up quick. Best meatballs I've ever had. Their Pasta Carbonara is my favorite. Buon Appetito.

So far on my visit to Rome this has been my favourite restaurant, I will revsit before I leave, but I will book as it was so busy, its not fancy or posh but the food was very well priced and the house red wine was delicious. lots of locals in there always a good sign.

Tried to eat every day of my 6 day trip and got in for dinner by some miracle, sneaking in early at 8. They turned me away full every other night. Get a reservation. Extensive menu, but look at their daily specials. Something fresh and new, They take a great deal of pride in their dishes. Get a reservation!

We stopped into Taverna Romana for lunch on the recommendation of some friends. It was a casual and delicious meal. Taverna Romana is tucked away on a narrow side street. We had the pasta fagioli, polpette (meatballs) and a salad--all were fantastic (and I am forever in search of great pasta fagioli). The pasta fagioli was made with flat ribbon... More

good roman food, to expensive for the quality they serve. An artichoke 6 euro is too much... for the place and the quality.

We didn't book a table, we were seated really fast. The service was really friendly and quick, the before mentioned salad and pasta was very tasty (in Italy you always put your own dressing on the salad:-)). Great place, we would come back anytime.

Came across this place after searching the tripadvisor app and wasn't disappointed. We were seated with no problem at about 9pm. Just as well we arrived when we did as the queues outside began! This isn't a pizza place, but the pasta is fantastic and good value. Our meal including service charge came to just over 60 euros for 2... More

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.
