Visited this restaurant on the strength of reviews here but unfortunately we cannot agree with the many 4 and 5 star reviews! The maitre’d was rude, never making eye contact and continuing conversation with colleagues continually while seating us and taking payment. The rest of...More

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
