Note of caution - NEVER EVER go here without booking a table and also keep 30 - 45 mins to be seated from the time of booking. Found this place from ofcourse Tripadvisor and no wonder our first try to have dinner was turned down as we did not have any booking. Second time for lunch I could only be... More

We had one night in Rome so were keen to pick a good restaurant - this place did not disappoint. We rang on the day to book a table - they were full until 9.30 so we took a late sitting and it was definitely worth it. The food was delicious and service was great - they spoke fluent English...

This is a busy spot - be sure to make a reso for dinner - lots of tourists were here so I'm unsure how 'local' the cuisine, but nonetheless it was delicious!!!!! The service is efficient as they are super busy and everything was tasty. Try the Coco de Pepe with or without truffle oil - so good. It was... More

We,with my brother, planned an Italy trip by especially searching for the good places to eat good italian food. Although as you may know, there are many restaurants we chose this one because of the menu options and the way from our hotel since it was the closest one to the place that we stayed. We were expecting high quality... More

Well after hours of reading restaurant reviews for a family trip to Rome I was hoping to have the same warm experience that many have received at this restaurant for my family. We were staying at the Hotel Excelsior and traveled by taxi to get there. We made a reservation weeks in advance and walked in and was placed next... More

We found this restaurant via trip advisor and what a win! The place is tiny but full of life, sounds and smells of a family reunion. The owner and his daughter made us feel like long lost family. With all the pictures of celebrities on the wall it didn't seem to phase them at all. The food was delicious and... More

Stayed a week in Roma and it was the last restaurant we tried, but by far the best. We were staying just in front in a rented apartment and would have returned for sure. The food is excellent, had the raviolis with a contorni of eggplants, both daily specials, ended all of that with a great soufflé and a Cappuccino.... More

We had a lunch reservation for after our visit to the colloseum (which I recommend). It is a short convenient walk! The caprese was fantastic with Beautiful red sweet tomatoes. The pastas were all cook perfectly with simple beautiful sauces. The truffle gnocchi was the best of our trip. Service and simple Italian ambience was on point. Will definitely be... More

We visited this after it was recommended to me by an Italian colleague. It was so good that we ended up booking it again during our stay for Easter Sunday, good thing we did too as it was packed. The restaurant has a very warm and inviting atmosphere and there were several locals dining in there. It looked like a... More

Staying in Monti

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.
