Cozy, cool, perfect to chill out and great conversations

Relaxed ambiance, great selection of wines (found my very favorite in the whole world here!) and cocktails, friendly staff, good prices and located in one of my favorite neighborhoods in Rome. Simply loved it!

We visited this place on a recommendation from a friend. It's in teh Monti area which is fun to visit in the evening as it's a bit away from the tourist madness that Rome is engulfed in. There are loads of quirky places to eat and drink but this is my favourite. Reasonable prices and an eclectic fun friendly crowd.... More

A nice little place for a pre or post-dinner drink. It has a charming atmosphere, excellent wine by the glass, and very comfortable prices. This place deserves another visit.

The kind of place where writers, artists and musicians gather - very cool, but not self conscious. Really friendly staff, inexpensive and a place to relax away from the tourist rush.

We popped in her after dinner on night. It's a very cool place, lots of different furniture, lots of sofas, lots of books, quite dark and loads of ambiance. Cocktails, wine, beer and tea on the menu, no coffee! Cocktails were 5 to 6 euros. I had a very nice mojito. It's a very chilled out place to sit and... More

Decently priced drinks in a residential location. Has a bit of a hipster appeal. The dimly lit bar and comfortable couches attract young couples on date night.

This place is a real find; excellent choice of wine and comfortable and easy surroundings in which to drink it. Visited here a few nights during our stay. Free Internet makes it an ideal stop from which to post your pictures of your time in Rome. The friendly staff complete the picture.

Best place for a relaxed cocktail. Love it. Fairly cheap, good tasting cocktails but the atmosphere is just fantastic. The books in the shelves are for sale, even thought we only found criminal novels in english it's still really cool.

Recommended by our hotel and a true gem of a find. In a lovely cobbled back street in the beautiful neighbourhood of Monti. Great drinks option, very reasonably priced but most of all lovely staff. Not my usual sort of place and felt like a fish out of water to start with, I need not have worried. Staff made you... More

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.
