Tasty Carbonara!

The place is quite simple but still warm and cozy. The staff is a lot of fun and above all Carbonara was really awesome. Price was also adequate. I really recommend it

I know they probably won't make the best Pizza in Rome, but in the 7 days we were in Italy it was definitely the best we tried. The menu is varied with lots more than Pizza to choose from and if you don't want to wait at the door make a reservation, it is always busy.

The food was ok, nothing to write home about. The setting is traditional and does get quite cramped. There is a slight language barrier if your Italian is poor like mine and the English translations of the menu are quite confusing. Prices are good with me and my husband sharing a starter, two mains of pizza and a small jug... More

We had a delightful four course meal here on the outdoor patio. It was delicious, authentic and the price was right. We couldn't believe when we got the bill that we ate all that food for so little money. A great find and recommended!

On my first night out. I asked my hotel for a good restaurant with reasonable prices. I wanted a good place Italians good to and I was given this restaurant mostly visited by local and non tourist. Had a wonderful sea food dish for a starter and the had wonderful green gnocchi with Gorgonzola. Wonderful and excellent service. Superb!!!!

We stayed close by and ate here twice. The food was great and the atmosphere was vibrant. The service could be friendlier but hey its Rome!

We ate as a family of four and enjoyed great freshly prepared food. Service was attentive and we found this place offered good value. Soups were delicious and pizzas were thin and crispy. Steaks were cooked exactly to order. It was full of locals enjoying their meals. The pasta looked yummy but we were too well fed to sample. I... More

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

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.
