Ate here on a Sunday afternoon at Easter time. Wonderful pasta and complete menu. Be sure to reserve ahead as they turn a lot of folks away. The Monti area is a perfect area to wander in on any day of the week.

This restaurant definitely lives up to the reviews! It was nearly impossible to get a reservation, and we actually could not get in until our last night in Rome (after having our hotel call to make reservations for us, as we were never successful ourselves)....More

This little joint is located in what most would consider an alleyway. It's about 4 blocks from the Colosseo ....just a few minutes walk. We all enjoyed our lunch as well as the atmosphere. I'd recommend the Pâté' on toasted bread for antipasti and pasta...More

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

Sorry for the delay in responding. I have only just seen your question. This restaurant is close to the colosseum. I would say from the Trevi fountain it would be a twenty minute walk.

Honestly I don't know. They are very family oriented, so maybe not open on Christmas...I would call them.
