Ok place for drinks due to location, but food is bad. Had duck there (over salted), roasted potatoes (cold!) and some terrible salad. Waiter magically forgot English when we voiced our complains about the food :) Typical tourist trap.

this is a classic "tourist trup" - small dishes with bad food, sometimes even ridiculous, like "antipasto dish" that included 4 pieces of eggplant and one (!) mushroom. only the bad service could compare to this...

Great spot for lunch after a tour of the Colosseum. We shared a starter that was great and then has a variety if pasta mains that were all good. The guy that took the order recommended a great wine. Really enjoyed our lunchtime break.

Stopped for lunch while strolling around Monti. It was very busy but we were given a table in the terrace immediately. The bruschetta was lovely and topped with plenty of fresh tomatoes. Pasta amatriciana was delicious. A nice little spot to enjoy a bowl of...More

Me and my husband followed TA to reach this restaurant. We were delighted with the food but what killed it was the crowd and the people waiting outside to get it. Hence the lazy Italian cafe feel was missing. Too busy. But food is no...More

Stepped into this place for dinner after visiting the Colosseum (perhaps .25 miles from the Colosseum). There was an outside dining area that greets one as they arrive. It is surrounded by natural greenery growing up wrought iron trellises which adds to the nice venue...More

We discovered this place on Sunday night and had a pre dinner drink, it was massively busy with a queue for tables but it is a brilliant spot to watch the activity in the square and the drinks are reasonable and come with snacks. We...More

Great cosy terrace where you can enjoy the surrounding of the square. The food was alright, nothing outstanding and the wine unfortunately bit overpriced. Rather go for a pasta than a sandwhich/panini.

Food was average, but the cocktails were TERRIBLE. We ordered 2 cocktails, one was very average and the other one was so awful we could not drink it. I have drunk cocktails all around the world and never experienced one, up until this caffe, where...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
