A wee bit of Ireland in Rome ...

Great little pub with good Irish beers and whiskeys, friendly barkeep,and nice atmosphere. I find it a great little escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.

If you only come for the beer, it's not bad. Small and mostly locals including a very young child who seems to be family with the owners. I wouldn't come back.

We called in on Sunday to watch the City Utd game - as City fans, thank goodness my boyfriend got muddled up with the timings and we couldn't stay to watch the match! Fantastic bar with amazingly friendly staff, big thanks to the gentleman who recommend Francescos for our meal that evening -it didn't disappoint! Thank you for your hospitality... More

We stumbled upon this place and discovered a gem! We spent most of the night here, the staff were brilliant and very attentive. They brought drinks to the table for those a little older as the bar was very busy. The prices were reasonable, standard pub prices really. We had a bite to eat and the irish nachos were great.

Found this pub while working to Trevi Fountain. My girlfriend and I stopped for a drink the security were Roma fans but didn't mind my liking for Lazio. Craic was good while weather was about drizzley. Got talking to guy from Canada how worked In the financial sector and he wad very interesting. The drinks were a little bit expensive... More

A good pub but expensive, in a quiet part of that city, to which all roads run. Definitely worth a return visit.

We went to the Fiddler's Elbow to stay away from the riots after the Roma-Feyenoord football game. It was quiet and we took over most of it. The drinks were expensive, but it had a good atmosphere. Also, it was open mic night so there was some entertainment.

We happened to be staying right by The Fiddler's Elbow and went in for the open mic night on Thursday. The place was packed and there was a brilliant atmosphere. Don't go for the wine though, stick with beer and spirits.

As we usually stay in the area, we regularly visit the 'Fiddlers'. Always busy and never short of someone to talk to. The Guinness is good and there's sometimes live music to get the place rocking.

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.
