A really wonderful restaurant outside of the "tourist" areas. The place was packed full of local Italians, and we truly enjoyed this stunning meal.

The owner is a total thief.Firstly, he brought us a very poor salad, and he chopped the letus in front of our eyes with naked hands!! Secondly, he brought us a steak without any rice or potatoes.He tried to erase his mistake by asking us if we would like some potatoe salad along with our steak, and we said yes.Instead... More

We went there after eating for two nights in a restaurant a few doors away and wish we hadn't. The courses were brought to the table before we had even finished the previous course and I felt force fed! There was nothing to complain about the food itself but nothing to rave about either. The waiter was grumpy even though... More

If you are looking for a neat, homey and welcoming restaurant that serves great wholesome Italian cuisine then this is the place for you. The Restaurant is certainly not fancy but it is neat and clean and not pretentious in the slightest. Populated mostly by local neighborhood residents you typically sit along with the grandmothers, grandfathers, husbands, wives and assorted... More

We visited Da Michele for a Sunday lunch. Although the restaurant was quite busy, we had a pleasant experience. Food was served fast and it was very tasty. A good place to visit outside the noisy and commercial streets of Rome.

The restaurant is on a busy road and a very busy restuarant. We had to sit outside, the staff was okay but had to look after all the tables outside. I ordered the salmon tagilette, which was very tasty and reasonable price. My friend ordered a pizza and equally as tasty one of the best pizzas in town.

We have eaten in places half the way aroud the world, and we rate Da Michele as good as we have eaten any were. Two nights ago, we experienced their Calamri Fritti,and they were delicious,tonight we experienced the linguini frutta del mare, and it was the best sea food pasta ever.

Very nice part of town quiet and relaxing. The staff was very nice and the prices were very reasonable for wine and pizza. The pizza was good but could use a little more cheese and sauce.

Staying in Monti

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.
