If you are looking for something exotic but genuine in Rome, this is the restaurant where you should go to. You will find many little appetizers of the Middle East cuisine (mezé) as well as Mediterranean dishes from Roman-Jews to Southern Italy cooking tradition. Also the dessert choice is terrific. It is run by Daniela e Roberto and their family,... More

We had a great time at Meze Bistrot! The staff was very kind and helpful, the food was delicious and the atmosphere was very nice. The prices were also very good -in fact, the best we found in all the restaurants we ate at.

I have never written a review, but I feel compelled to for Meze Bistrot. It's not easy to come by good non-Italian food in Rome, but you will find it here. We had excellent Baba ghanoush, polpettine al zenzero, cous cous, pollo gerusalemme, and a simple wine. Highly recommended.

SERVICE IS ABSOLUTELY PERFECT first of all and when it comes to order any plates they are well presented, first quality food and excellent tastes. Here you have a plenty of mixed Mediterranean, Greek,... More

One of the best Hummus I had in a long time, very good chicken in coconut sauce, great beers from Belgium, Czech Republic and Bavaria. Simply an oasis of taste! Worth going. 10 people loved it and it was not pricey. Where the locals go.

So, we've just been there in this hot sunday evening, as everything else was closed in the area (we live close by). I must say that I was not satisfied. A pita bread turned out to be a standard bun (seemed industrial to me). The cutlets seemed like they had been taken out of a supermarket. Then we had a... More

Wonderful and particular food, great quality, marvellous courtesy. I live next to the restaurant and I am used to go there often also for an happy hour. I love the owner and the waiters, all of them are incredibly nice and have a lot of advices for hour dinner. The place is not "touristic", though.

Lovely place, packed on a Tuesday evening, great service. It offers a range of Mediterranean dishes including Sicily. Although I had an excellent Pasta pesto Trapanese my company was very happy with some Lebanese delicacies. All in all a really good change to the usual pizza, pasta, prosciutto scene!

We stumbled upon this place when staying close by in the Le Fate Apartments and we're really pleased with what we found! Firstly the welcome by the waitress who spoke in precise English after working in London as an actress for a few years was first class! She made us feel welcome and helped us navigate the Italian menu. Her... More

Description
Warm and cozy place, with Mediterranean cuisine, but also an eye to the rest of the world.The name Mezé comes from the ancient and noble custom of the Ottoman Empire to serve small appetizers before the main meal: crispy fried stuff and soft and tasty humus and babaganush to spread on a warm pita bread before enjoying a good cous cous (steamed, not precooked!) or an inviting chicken Jerusalem. Pasta dishes served as well. Informal service, but accurate

Neighborhood Profile
Monteverde
Above the city on the Janiculum hill, Monteverde is Rome’s popular "getaway" neighborhood, coveted for its greenery. Rome's largest urban park, Villa Pamphili, is the area's centerpiece with affordable prices and peace and quiet. Monteverde is just far enough away from the center to feel like you’re on a Roman holiday and close enough to feel the lure of Rome's chaos. Though its downside is the lack of scheduled public transport, this family-oriented area is literally a well-deserved walk in the park.
