My work required that on twoi of the nights while in Rome I would need Internet access several times over the span of a few hours. And since the Fiddler's Elbow provided it, initially my aim was very pragmatic—buy a beverage and an appetizer to qualify as a paying customer, and then get to work. But the curious contrast of...

Popped in for a quick drink after dinner - what a mistake to make! The hospitality is second to none: the service excellent and the beer delicious!

OK, not everyone has the same tastes. Restaurant reviews are always potentially problematic. We were ready for a pizza break and walked around the square, liked the look and location of this pub and were tempted by the very inexpensive (by Rome standards) hamburgers. Drinks were cold, staff was friendly, people watching was great, location and atmosphere a plus. I... More

A fab pub with great Guinness. Authentic wooden furniture, good music and friendly staff, when my mum taught English in Rome many years ago she drank her Guinness here - now that's a good sign! Nearby to the impressive Santa Maria Maggiore plaza and close by to Termini station, I recommend this lovely Irish pub in the heart of Rome.

The barman was quite friendly and the music was fine. IF you are tired of all those pizza and pasta restaurants (like i was) the place will offer... More

This pub was just around the corner from our hotel and we visited each night while in Rome. The prices are reasonable and the drinks are poured well. The staff is super friendly and mostly speak English. The regular patrons were friendly to tourists. The music played was great and there were many events going on throughout our stay.
