Very welcoming neighborhood ristorante for our group of foot-weary Year of Mercy pilgrims. Sampled many menu items...all winners. Of special note, our regular server André speaks excellent English, is patient and jocular, and remembered each of us like family. By the end of our week...More

Actually, this restaurant really outdid our expectations with lovely food, friendly service and a good atmosphere. All for a fair price.

Excellent ristorante di quartiere. We sat outside in August so there was little traffic. Food was cheap and very, very good. Nice local wine, also cheap. Unrushed, friendly service. Excellent cacao e pepe, lamb, contorni. I went a little overboard and ordered the semifreddo for...More

It's okay for a night before a flight. Very cheap. The receptionist didn't return our change, and didn't print our boarding passes as promised. So I guess we got what we paid for.

Superb food and service. Obviously a favourite among the locals. If you want a little more quiet atmosphere than is usually offered at the "Google" restaurants and equally good food, this is your place.

Just a short walk from the apartment we rented during our stay in Rome. We stopped by for dinner with some friends who were also visiting the city. The servers were friendly, and helpful while we worked our way through their extensive menu. We all...More

Above the city on the Janiculum hill, Monteverde is
Rome’s popular "getaway" neighborhood, coveted for its
greenery. Rome's largest urban park, Villa Pamphili,
is the area's centerpiece with affordable prices and
peace and quiet. Monteverde is just far enough away
from the center to feel like you’re on a Roman holiday
and close enough to feel the lure of Rome's chaos.
Though its downside is the lack of scheduled public
