Found this close to where we were staying. Really lovely service, great food and nice atmosphere. If we were in Rome frequently, kind of place we'd regularly go back to.

They specialise in sea food, however I went for a more traditional pasta dish. Greta service and great tasting food. Their desserts were to die for (just make sure you leave some room). It feels like the kind of food your Mum would serve, lovingly prepared - a real passion for them.

We found this on trip advisor on our first night in Rome. So happy that we came back near the end of our holiday. We had the mixed antipasto starter both nights. There was enough for 2 or 3 people. Over the 2 nights we tried the steak with green peppers , the fiorentina, the spaghetti a Vongole and the... More

We arrived late at night and were very grateful that our hotel managed to make a reservation for our group of 4 couples at this restaurant which was just around the corner from our hotel. We loved the friendly welcome we received from the staff and our excellent waiter and the ambiance of this small restaurant where we all enjoyed... More

Love this restaurant. Second visit here and didn't disappoint. Staff welcoming, in fact our waiter remembered us from our first visit. Puttanesca pasta was delicious, as was the spaghetti pomodoro. Followed up by yummy desserts... Tirimasu and lemon sorbet. Loved the cherry liqueur and limoncello shots to finish the meal. Definitely worth the visit!

We're un Rome since three days and this was honestly the best restaurant we tried (and the other ones were quite good). Not only the good was delicious but the staff was also really warm and nice, which was the point missing in the other restaurants. We really enjoy the time spent in this place as a couple but I'm...

Tema is a warm welcoming restaurant, located just off Via Urbana, known for its great seafood (in addition their champagne risotto is amazing)! You will never leave hungry! They have an extensive wine selection and some special deserts! The multi lingual staff will attend to your dietary needs and are very knowledgeable about their craft. Can't wait to return!

Close to our hotel, we decided to try R. Tema. We were glad we did. Choose from the pre fixe menu and you'll get a great value. Wine was good and homemade lemoncello was excellent. Get a seat close to the kitchen so you can peak in and see the action.

My boyfriend and I enjoyed dinner at Ristorante Tema last week and it was absolutely FANTASTIC! We arrived just as the restaurant was closing, and the wait staff was kind enough to stay open for us to dine. I'm so happy they did because it ended up being the best place we dined in Rome! Excellent service, atmoshere, and music.... More

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.
