Popped in here to watch Wales in the euro semi. Got a seat at the bar. Great bartenders. The Irish guy working was super attentive and never stressed. I work in a bar myself and was really impressed. The girl working was really friendly and chatty. If I had more time in rome I'd definitely visit again.

Small great little Irish bar in Rome. It's a hole in the wall in a small street that no one goes down. The owner is extremely friendly. Great place to get away from tourists. Highly suggest to stop for a couple pints. Not a place to eat though

Very busy pub with a good choice of imported beers, as in most city centre pubs imported beers are not cheap, but the pub has a great atmosphere with live Irish music played on the nights we were there

I'm used to go there, because you'll find an Irish atmosphere, the football soccer derby, or (better) music, also live music! The best Guinness in Rome!

A great Irish pub which is actually like a pub in Ireland, rather than an awful theme bar. Had a few excellent Guinesses whilst watching the sport. Friendly barstaff and reasonable prices. Lovely place to find a nook and enjoy some rest and recovery.

I visited The Fidder's Elbow on my last night in Rome and comfortably enjoyed a couple of great pints of Guinness. I don't normally try Guinness outside Ireland but this pub had the authenticity of an Irish pub lifted from Dublin and moved to Rome. Great music and friendly staff and locals were good fun. Great choice for visiting Irish... More

Visited this pub and found it to be very nice, the staff were friendly and welcoming without being too intrusive on your evening. The beers were mostly bottles apart from the guiness, the food menu was varied and reasonably priced and the food arrived very quickly! Enjoyed a pizza and risotto to share with a few cold peronis.

Thank LeeLee883

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.
