This is a delightfully located restaurant near to the Forum of Trajan and Trajan's Market (so called !). If you can find a window table, the view is lovely and on a hot day the restaurant is cool and peaceful. At lunchtime I've never found the restaurant too busy and the waiters cope in a friendly and efficient manner. Have... More

Very polite waiters. Quite good fresh food. Quiet place for the rest after long excursion. Too close to the forum with available tables.

Presents itself as an expensive fine dining establishment - but the food is plain, bland and not fresh. Plain pasta with melted cheese (?!), canned mushrooms on meat, stale bread, plain raviolis.. it was not good and the prices were exorbitant.

Given the lack of any restaurants within sight of the Forum, this restaurant was basically the only option. Prices were very high, but the food (both a fish menu and a traditional Roman menu) was really good. Note: things marked with two asterisks use frozen igredients, so no surprise that shrimps will not be fresh...

We tell - insist - family and friends to NEVER eat near the Colosseum, the Forum, or Ancient Roman ruins. Never. But here we were.... After a tiring day walking the area, the Colosseum, the Forum, and back to Trajan's Market, we needed a respite. And we didn't follow our own advice... You try to convince yourself: it overlooks Trajan's... More

We were in the area looking for another restaurant but couldn't find it so ended up going here instead. Upon entering, the decor was very outdated and could do with a good overhaul. The waiters were pleasant and seated us quickly. It would have been lovely to have seated with a view of the Colosseum but we were seated right... More

This restaurant isn't worthwhile to go to. Last year I had a good experience with colleagues but this year it was so bad!!!! The waiter was not only unpleasant, he was offensive and told me I was a joke in Italian when I paid the bill and asked for my change. The pasta with salmon was tasteless and not properly... More

It was a great experience to have a nice lunch with a view of the Coliseum in the background. The prices were reasonable especially considering the touristic location. A Roman specialty is cacio e pepe......pasta with a base of local cheese and black pepper. Frankly, I had never heard of that until this trip. That's a nice taste....worth the trip!... More

Tasteless tat from frozen bags - that was my pasta! Pasta with Muscles and clams - the muscles looked very over cooked and in fact when I push my flat fork against them they mushed up - no taste and no texture, clearly a frozen solution.

Disappointing. You can get better Italian food in the UK. Staff not very pleasant. I was asked to take a bottle of water I brought off the table even tough we were drinking water we order in the restaurant!!! The surrounding and view is all you can appreciate in here. Simply trading off their location! Very disappointing.

Neighbourhood Profile
Monti
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 Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
