I was last week at Settembrini for an aperitif with a friend of mine. The place is amazing, staff very kind, food and drinks selection is very good and staff is appropriate. I loved this place is very roman taste and classy. You can have also breakfast, lunch or dinner. I will go to taste the Saturdays or Sundays bunch

We were a party of 6 and just found this place by chance. The staff were very good, the meals fine and the atmosphere was very good. No complaints at all from us.

My friend was visiting Rome one late Sunday morning. Beforehand, I had searched the internet for a cafe to have brunch which is not so traditional in Rome. Since, I have passed by this cafe many times and it looks really nice, we opted for trying this place. Firstly, the staff looked at me strangely annoying, when I mentioned the... More

Settembrini is not a restaurant that you would sit down in to have antipasti, pasta and primi, it is more of a casual place, where you sit outside in good weather and share some of their excellent cold cuts and cheeses and maybe follow it up with a main. Order wine from their excellent and really reasonable selection and enjoy... More

Staff was extremely accommodating and helpful, happily translating the entire menu (both the café and the restaurant menus, and serving dishes from the restaurant menu even though we were there at seven - a couple of hours before regular Italian dinner time) for us (we didn't even ask for it) and being very attentive to our needs.

We've only been to Caffe Settembrini for morning coffee, so I can't comment on the aperitivi, but it's a place we visit on all our trips to Rome and I'm happy to say it's still terrific. The coffee is very good. I'm not a huge fan of Italian coffee (I know, I feel like a freak about it, too) but... More

We ended up in Settembrini by recommendation from our apartment owner on Prati. Luckily we followed his advice. The place besides of being cool, the food was excellent 100%. If you happen to be there for lunch order one the lunch options from "Le nostre Formule". I ordered "la signora Maigret" FANTASTIC. Also their desserts are amazing. All home made,... More

This is a top end restaurant with a modern menu, located in a quiet residential area of Rome. There is a choice of two menus; Classic or Special. We selected the Special and what a great choice it was. We had a starter of marinated raw scallops which was delicate with balanced acidity accompanied by small pieces of marinated radish.... More

This is a very trendy cafe that filled quickly with an after work crowd for their evening aperitivi and a snacks. On this occasion an Italian celebrity was among those enjoying a spring evening at an outside table. He graciously shook hands and posed for photos with well wishers and staff from this friendly bar. Would highly recommend stopping here... More
