We really enjoyed this spot. Understatedly hip, cool tunes (lots of Parov Stelar), great cocktails. Perfect spot for an aperitif while one waits for the restaurant reservation time to arrive. First time, we stumbled on it because it was close to the restaurant we were...More

Good service ( a bit more attentive when the place is not crowded), deceptively good cocktails, and a comfortable, laid back environment. We live nearby and this place is a great, not-terribly touristed, option.

I would definitely recommend this bar if you have a niche drink you like. I’ve visited this bar in July 2018 and appreciated their wide variety of drinks. The bartenders were very knowledgeable of every single kind of drink possible. Lisa was particularly helpful. Lisa...More

This place is one of the best cocktail bars I’ve been too, and as from my previous reviews you’ll see I’ve been to many!! The place is hidden down a side street next to some cafes and restaurants so make sure you keep an eye...More

The bar has a a list of about 10 different signature cocktails, of which we tried six. Each one was very tasty with quality infredients and well mixed (eg. Sonolucio with Woodford whiskey and Campari). Bar is richly decorated and music is well selected, italian...More

Not too hard to find and you could see the bar from the outside (even though it’s a bit of a speakeasy where you have to ring a doorbell haha). Great cocktails (we tried four), and the enigma is perhaps the most interesting one, where...More

Speakeasy athmosphere with great music, fun table game and fantastic drinks! I would highly recommend this place for a fun night with friends or a romantic night out!

Absolutely love this place! The cocktails are some of the best I've ever had ( the menu is in Italian so it's a bit of a surprise when you choose a drink) I had the sunset kuala lumpur which was incredible and we went back...More

Amazing cocktail bar in Trastevere. Cosy atmosphere and attention to details, from the cocktail list that comes in a box and boasts innovative flavors to the art on the walls and ceiling. Will absolutely go back when in Rome!

Popped here on the off chance after seeing reviews. We were key in after knocking on the door after knocking (which could easily be missed when passing by as it's subtle). Bit like going to an eccentric friends house for drinks in the living room....More

Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded
postcard, a little worn around the edges but still
charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering
streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and
overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible
mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of
entertainment - a rotating set of street performers
entertains almost every night, and unforgettable
