We visited this place on wednesday at lunch time. There was room for us but usually they recommend to book a table. Pistacchio pasta was something you don't get at every place in Rome, big recommendation! Carbonara was very basic and smaller than other portions....More

We booked in advance for 8.30pm which I recommend doing as people were being turned away at the door. The service and food were excellent. I would come back for the Frittura and the Carbonara!

The food is fairly cheap which may explain why this restaurant is so popular but we found far better options in adjacent streetss. The service was good (previous reviews noted) but we wouldn’t recommend the food. The menu offers pasta dishes and then ‘sliced’ beef,...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
