Lovely evening meal in this cafe very close to Rome's Colosseum. Very relaxed environment, clean tiled walls, contemporary design, and excellent service. Pasta dishes were excellent ( tomato pasta particularly) but the highlight were the fried anchovies and cabbage with almonds dishes. The perception was however that it was tad expensive.

I was prepared to write a scathing review of this place because it sets out to be fashionable and it's a bit pricey. But actually I enjoyed my meal there with friends and didn't mind spending 40 euros a head. The menu was not huge but each dish on it offered something original and interesting. The portions were quite small... More

We enjoyed steak, burger, pasta, Chianti, and the espresso and dessert. Great location near the Colosseum. Glad that Chiara our tour guide recommended this place.

This was not quite what I expected. It is located right across the street from our Airbnb place. It's pretty much cocktails and it's a little swanky (I was hoping for a more less frills bar) however the bartender did a great job in trying to communicate with us and served some fantastic drinks. They also provided some delicious morsels... More

Caffe Propaganda has delicious food and a matching delicious atmosphere. This is a perfect, peaceful place to unwind for a bit (and even people watch) after traipsing around the city. Their service isn't the best if you're in a hurry, but otherwise the experience I had was excellent, and this venue had come recommended to me by friends who visited... More

This restaurant is quite good. The choice is good enough; not too much, but more or less any kind of preference can be satisfied. The cooking is partially "international" and partially "typical italian". Anyway, I prefer the most usual italian typical restaurant, not like this (I like eating more than " have a fine presentation of Just a little che... More

Staying in Monti

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.
