“One of the best bars in Rome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

A small, friendly pub in Trastevere. The name of the place is an English equivalent to, “What the hell did you come here for?” So I wonder how I could fit right in, cause I did. It was such a fantastic place. The staff gave the best of service and were so friendly. I was told that it was a football pub, but luckily I didn’t notice… The pub got rated Best Pub in the World at Ratebeer.com in 2010. I’m not surprised.

And their craft beer selection? It was insane, both when it comes to European beers and rare American beers! I had a fantastic Simmetria edition of 22 La Verguenza from the brewery Birrificio Menaresta. It blew my mind!

“Best bar in Rome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013

We were in Rome for 4 nights in November 2013, and ended up at this bar 3 of those nights. Their craft beer selection is insane, both European beers and rare American beers. Free wifi in the front room only, but there are TV's elsewhere if you want to watch some soccer. Great location in the Trastevere neighborhood.

Riccardo is the best bartender in the world! He was super friendly and very helpful with recommendations.

Don't miss this bar if you love craft beer and you're in Rome.

“If you like craft beer then go”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

Awesome if you like craft beer. Free wifi as well. There is not a peroni in sight. If you like your mass market beer then stay away, otherwise it's well worth a trip.

“For the Beer Lovers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

My husband is obsessed with beers. I found this through the 36 Hours in Rome article in the NYT and was not disappointed. The selection is large and the place is tiny and very old but for a beer lover its heaven! Stand outside with your glass if it's a nice day! Easy walk from the Pantheon neighborhood.

“Great beer pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

There's not much to this place--it is small and cramped--but they have a really outstanding selection of beer and the service is good and friendly. This was our second time here (one year apart on separate trips to Rome) and it will be one of those places that we visit on each trip to try new beers and to socialize with fellow beer lovers. On both occasions, we discovered other non-Romans in the bar who had, like we had, come here strictly on the pub's reputation as a beer nirvana. It was fun to "talk beer" with these fellow travelers and to try those rare beers that we cannot find at home. If you love beer, this is a must-stop.
