Really good food! Everything is just perfect! It will stay for long in my mind and my soul! We went with the chef recommendations and the combination of starter, main dish and dessert was just perfect.

We were enticed by the Risotto which was very popular on TripAdvisor. It actually was tasty but we don't think we come back again as the prices were rather expensive than expected. There was a staff who can speak Japanese. He was very friendly and nice but I would say this is for tourists.

We ate at this restaurant on a rainy Friday night, when our first choices were full. The menu looked interesting. We decided on a mixed vegetable dish as an appetizer. It was boring at best. I chose the mixed grilled fish platter, which was OK but had very little to eat on it at 25 euros. My husband ordered a... More

Couldn't have asked for anything more. Great food and staff. The little touches were excellent with free bread and liquors at the end. Fresh decent food to meet the Italian needs. Very enjoyable experience.

Staying in the Monti district & came across this little gem. Tourist friendly - put up with my bad Italian for starters :). Menu had some GF options & staff were very friendly. Antipasti platter was great for entree & risotto / steak for mains were delisiouso. Prices very reasonable too.

We ate here our first night in Rome, having spent the day travelling from Barletta and getting to our accomodation quite late, so we ended up here as it was the closest to where we were staying. But the food was good and the service friendly but not too imposing. The prices while more than we would normally pay, were... More

This local restaurant is a neighborhood favorite for fish lovers and for good reason. On Saturday especially reservations are recommended. The swordfish is unique and delicious, the linguini and clam sauce equally tasty . Sautéed broccoli rabe was fresh and perfectly prepared. An added bonus was a fresh cannoli. Prices are ala carte. Full bar. Excellent, attentive service is the... More

I went to dinner on a Saturday evening in September, Vincenzo welcomed us so friendly and escorted to a reserved table in a very pleasant room. We ordered dinner of fish, fresh and well prepared.

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.
