This restaurant is very close to our hotel and we love eating there. It's always filled with locals and lots of energy. The food is really good and authentic and the staff is helpful and fun. It's one of those dining experiences where you feel a part of the community and that's quite special. Highly recommend.

If you want to eat something else than street-food then this is the right place to go. Comparing to street food in this place food is more expensive (main course + dessert + drinks for two costs about 60€ whereas in some street-food place same set costs about 30€). However at this place you have your own table where to... More

I was VERY impressed with this restaurant. We were on the hunt for delicious Italian homemade pasta, after spending a day in Florence and having a previous trip in Venice. The food was impeccable with awesome service- the owners cater to your every need and make sure everyone is comfortable. Both large and small parties received the same service. All... More

Visited this restaurant a number of times during our recent visit to Rome. It was first recommended by our tour guide, Kiron & it was a great choice. First class meal with great atmosphere! We had delicious meals of Antipasto, Fettuccini Vitello, Fettuccini Cabonara, Frittura di Calamari, Dolci della Casa always accompanied by the house wine. Perfect spot in heart... More

Like many of you, we wanted to believe in the generally good reviews. But trust us when we say that this place deserves none of them. The food was highly average and some dishes were really poorly put together (mozzarella and prosciutto). It was painful to see many other tourists have to experience this unpleasant restaurant in a city that... More

This was the first restaurant we visited and as we had just arrived in Rome we wanted to go near by to eat! We arrived without booking and had to go elsewhere for a drink as we waited. There was a free table outside but for some reason we were not offered it, even for an aperitif! When we returned... More

This is a special place with incredible food. Be sure to try the house specialties (especially their take on carbonara). Their bruschetta with burrata and substituted with Roman bacon versus anchovies was to die for.... Being foodies - we'd come back (in a couple of hours...) Gracie mille!

Recommended by our Colliseum guide. We made reservations ahead of time, as we noticed that this small restaurant filled up within 15 minutes of the time they opened for dinner. Quaint atmosphere, superb service and outstanding food. We shared Caicos e Pepe Tartufa (pasta with cheese, pepper and truffles), my husband had Filetto di Manzoall (veal with prosciutto and green...

I heard about this restaurant from at least two other couples before heading back to Rome. Could it really be that good? The reviews seemed to match what everyone was saying, and we couldn't have been happier. First of all...reservations - have one. It's not impossible to get in without one, but we saw plenty of people turned away the... More

Neighborhood Profile
Monti
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.
