Everyone was fantastic, but especially Simona who was our server. A view of the Colisseum, great food, and fantastic service are the perfect ending for a wonderful, but hot and exhausting day at the Colosseum.

Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood supports unique
and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime
residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at
