Best value near the colosseum. Friendly staff and nice atmosphere - feels like a hidden gem! We had panini capresi, spaghetti cacio e Peper and tiramisu, all delicious.

Hunt this place out if you're visiting the Colosseum. Well priced with a relaxed feeling. Personally, I'd recommend the Greek salad.

Our group of five had a wonderful lunch at the cafe. The staff was friendly and the food yummy. The blended drinks were delicious and they had a variety of choices. We enjoyed pizza, quiche, panini, and salads. The price was reasonable and the setting comfortable.

We stayed near the colosseum & visited this cafe twice - really lovely homemade food cool refreshing drinks & welcoming staff. Near the colosseum & forum it's the best place to recharge. I a lone female arrived & felt safe & welcomed.

Just up the street from the Colosseum, this tiny cafe had excellent food. The pizzas were very good but the paninis were excellent. The service was friendly and the prices reasonable. A wonderful lunch break after touring the Forum and Colosseum.

Very eclectic Mediterranean cafe. A great escape from the Colosseum tourist traps. Just steps away from the main drag into a quiet neighborhood. Employees were very attentive and helpful. Nice selections of salads and drinks.

I ate here with my family one Thursday lunchtime post-Colosseo and pre-Forum. You need to keep your strength up for this sightseeing business! My husband and teens had pizzas which were very tasty and I had two of the "tastings" which were simply delicious, so tasty, fresh and just right for a hot day. One would have done me but... More

We stopped by this cafe to eat a light lunch and ordered canelloni. Really good canelloni with sallad on the side. The service was fast and we had help to choose our beverages. The ambience was cosy and relaxed. And the prices were fair.

Thank Vincent G

Staying in Monti

Neighborhood Profile
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.
