We ate at antico arco following the reviews we read on trip advisor - it didn't disappoint. The restaurant is at the top of the hill so you can see all of Rome at night. The food was fantastic, good portions and very tasty. The bread was exceptional, some of the best I've ever had. Lastly the wine is very... More

We absolutely loved our meal here! The room itself is almost reason enough to head up to the restaurant. BUT the food tops it all. Everything we had was amazing!!

I enjoyed celebrating my birthday here with my husband. The restaurant itself is lovely -- great atmosphere with lots of white and mirrors, good lighting -- and is a great choice for a special occasion dinner. The menu itself is also very creative, which is a refreshing change in a city where all restaurants tend to serve the same dishes.... More

I had dinner here recently with a group of about 30. The restaurant is away from the main part of the city, but the building, an obviously restored villa, is beautiful and very Roman. Equally important, the food was excellent. I was not thrilled when the menu said "duck." However, it was delicious: crispy, perfectly seasoned, not at all heavy... More

This review is long overdue, but I wanted to make sure I eventually put the review this restaurant deserves. My then fiancé and I went to Antico Arco in November of 2014 on two separate occasions. We were in Italy because we decided to get married there and arrived a week before the big day. This was a last minute... More

My daughter surprised me for my birthday this year by taking me to Antico Arco. She always has a way of spoiling me for my birthday with something new each year, and I have to say, my special dinner at Antico Arco was absolutely the best experience ever! As an expat living in Rome for over 30 years I always... More

I just celebrated my birthday dinner in the lovely Antico Arco. We were a large group of 26 people, friends and family from Rome and abroad, and we were all (especially including the birthday girl!) extremely impressed with absolutely everything. We were seated in a reserved area, an exquisite private room just for us which was a special treat as... More

First ask your taxi driver (you'll need one unless you fancy a 20 minute walk up a very steep hill) to drop you off down the road from the restaurant to admire the panoramic view of Rome. Then it's a five minute walk back up the street to this beautifully decorated restaurant. The food can be summarised as artistic, unique... More

Neighborhood Profile
Monteverde
Above the city on the Janiculum hill, Monteverde is Rome’s popular "getaway" neighborhood, coveted for its greenery. Rome's largest urban park, Villa Pamphili, is the area's centerpiece with affordable prices and peace and quiet. Monteverde is just far enough away from the center to feel like you’re on a Roman holiday and close enough to feel the lure of Rome's chaos. Though its downside is the lack of scheduled public transport, this family-oriented area is literally a well-deserved walk in the park.
