Great little venue.

A delightful little bar which opens out into a funky dining, entertainment area with music on several nights. The Proprietor is a warm, Italian with a real Irish son and the barman also has enough brogue to keep you smiling.

This is a very busy pub. We just had a few drinks in here a couple of times and the staff are welcoming.

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.

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.

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.
