We had 3 dishes and 2 desserts for only 60euros! Absolutely worth the money, especially the truffle fagotelli and deconstructed carrot cheesecake!

Unfussy service. Seated, Ordered and served promptly. Black Cabbage with shrimp rolls superb! Argentinian beef with cheese sounds full-on, but it is all about proportion. I loved it! Medium, so slightly bloody and very tender. House wine also very good. First visit, but I'll be back!

We went here having read the reviews and although we struggled to find it, we were so glad we did! We hadn't booked but they found us a table. Like other reviews the waitress explained the whole menu in English for us. We had the duck starter and tempura anchovies which were both superb and then I had the amatriciana... More

Best service. The entire menu is in Italian and since we don't speak the language the server read out each item on the menu along with the description. The food was creative and delicious. Definitely our favorite restaurant in Rome and would recommend it for a nice night out.

Really delicious dinner- squeezed us in for a last minute booking on a Saturday night, and though the menu was not in English (so we gambled a little on our choices!) everything was excellent. The carbonara in black tortellini was superb!

This ticks a lot of 'non touristy' boxes if you are looking for something of high quality and authenticity - menu is only in Italian, no one out the front trying to get your business and it only opens from 8pm onwards for dinner. Also tucked away. And because of all of this it really doesn't get the high number... More

Cuoco & Camicia is tucked away at the bottom of a huge flight of stairs in a dark alley near the Colosseum. It has a short menu of imaginative dishes based on traditional Roman cuisine. The quality of food was brilliant, as was the service. There isn’t an English menu (probably a good sign!) but the staff were more than... More

We went here on the recommendation of the manager at Lanza 111 and so glad we did. It was amazing. The menu was in Italian which we could read a little but the lady who helped us order explained everything in English. We went with the degustation chefs tasting menu and it was delightful. Every course was fully explained to... More

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.
