Totally disappointed with our visit! We had been looking forward to going to this restaurant, We were amazed at the poor quality of food we were served! Three beef dishes and we're all of poor quality served with a slice of tomato a few leaves and a spoon of peas €20 each! I asked did we need to order any... More

Following a recommendation from our hotel "Nerva Boutique Hotel" we visited this restaurant on our first night in Rome. Located just around the corner from the hotel it is a quaint little place with a very ambient and intimate feel. It was fully booked and many people were turned away if they had no reservation so I would definitely recommend... More

We were a group of 4 couples in Rome for the rugby match and were staying in an hotel in the neighbourhood and were so pleased that they managed to get a reservation at this restaurant for us as it was very popular and we saw they turned about 30 people away during the time we were there so please...

We were sent to this restaurant by our hotel concierge and were very pleased with the meal. Very welcoming staff, great food, happy to cook plain pasta and omelette off-menu for my 10 year old. Highly recommended.

There are several options for celiacs to eat in Rome. This is one with a nice ambient and just 400 m away from Colloseo. We, a couple, entered this restaurant because one of us wanted to have lunch. We were told in a really unfriendly manner told, that they are restaurant and we both have to have lunch. After some... More

We ate here twice in our week in Rome because the food and atmosphere were so good. It is important to book however. During February, at least, the restaurant is closed on Tuesdays. We booked at 7:30 each evening - when the restaurant opens - and by the time we arrived at 7:35 it was already full. It's particularly popular... More

After missing out on this place on previous trips to Rome, I was thrilled to walk in for lunch with no line! The food is wonderful, the staff is warm and friendly, and the house wine is not to be missed. Go here if you are close to the Colosseum / Forum and want to avoid a tourist trap. Reservations...

I had two very enjoyable lunches here with friends. I found the staff to be welcoming and friendly with the Roman sense of humour which makes them so easy to get along with. The food is very good, simple traditional dishes cooked well, which along with a nice glass of wine makes for a very pleasant hour or two. One... More

This was the best meal my husband and I have enjoyed since being in Italy this week. I had the fettuccine with ragout veal and he had the rosemary beef- So delicious! We finished our meal with the chocolate torte and gelato, amazing!

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.
