These guys seem to find entertaining to insult customers. You might find amusing to be screamed at. In my opinion not worth it - good octopus mediocre bast terrible attitude

We hoped to find a nice place for our last dinner in Rome. We failed. The owner/manager is just plain rude and seemed focused on getting people to order lots of food, quickly. He does not seem to understand the concept of hospitality. The server rushed us to order, and attempted to decide how much to order. The food was mediocre. The music was loud and bad. I literally had to leave the restaurant before the rest of our party had finished because the experience brought on a brutal headache. Avoid this place!

Food and hospitality....partying locals, great staff. This is a real find in an are with the usual tourist traps. After being gouged by the usual suspects, this made a refreshing change

We went to Zi'Mberto on recommendation from a close friend. We were not disappointed! What a great place, what great food!! It's simple but perfect food (less is more). My wife had the Carbonara and I had the pasta with mixed seafood. We had the house antipasti for starters. And a liter of the house wine. Everything was fantastic! And there was a big Italian family there, who had been in church to christen one of the bambinos, and so there was a really fun atmosphere in the place. Very authentic Italian osteria where the locals eat. We stayed for a couple of hours and really didn't want to leave:-) Fantastic experience. Mille grazie Zi'Mberto :-)

We ate in this adorable restaurant on one of our last nights in Rome. It was crowded and charming. The food was great and we had a lovely time. I had the classic pasta with cheese and pepper (I have no hope of saying it in Italian!) and it was really great. We were thrilled about everything and would go back if we were in town.
