The Chocolate Torte is NOT to be missed

The service is iffy, but its Rome and its always that way. Our driver suggested to us that we eat here for lunch. The waitress did not speak good English - which is not her fault so there was a communication issue but overall the food was very nice. My husband got a hamburger and I got Pesto... read more

Italian café experience.....the food is better than average and is open all day, the service is good and although limited the food is more than acceptable.......probably best described as a snack rather than a heavy meal

We had been eating in a lot of local restaurants; Caffe Propaganda was a little more elevated in decor, menu, and, yes, price. We stopped for a delicious lunch one day and in fact returned a week later for our last lunch in Rome. There were some light, innovative options, such as pressed duck salad with really interesting greens. They... More

First of all, three steps from the Coliseum is always convenient if you are a visitor to Rome. The ambiance and decor are simply wonderful, and for that alone you are never in a hurry to leave. Should you have to wait for a table - and at a place as great as this, lunch and dinner are crowded -... More

The manager of my hotel recommended this restaurant and after I went around the Colosseum I stopped here for a early dinner. Service was friendly and the pasta was lovely. However, place is very pricy, especially the beer!

This place is in a very convenient location, and is one of the nicer sit-down restaurants in the area. However, prices are relatively high and food is decent. That said, order the veal with tuna fish sauce from the appetizer menu. Exceptional dish that can't be found anywhere else in Rome.

We walked by this place a few times and finally went there... What a cool place - and busy too! We shared shrimp on toast, pasta and pesto and shared an Angus Kabob that in reality was a wrap(!). All very tasty! Finished it off with Oban 18.

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.
