Small and lovely Italian restaurant, 2 blocks from Colosseum. The food was excellent and also the services.

Nearby the Coliseum, this small trattoria is the best place we experienced in Rome. The waiter was very nice and the food.. my god! so good. The atmosphere was very intimate as we arrived late at night and we spent a very romantic time.

Well, this was a real strange evening at "Il Bocconcino". We came here because of the many nice reviews. We were greeted very friendly and the service was very nice throughout the whole evening. Unfortunately, the food could not keep up at all. We could...More

We loved our lunch at Il Bocconcino.. after a hot visit to the Colosseum and an underwhelming drink at a restaurant around the corner we were welcomed and made to feel very special! Beautiful wine, fabulous food and a very relaxed atmosphere. The staff are...More

I was walking around the Colosseum and sneaked into a side street. The place appeared empty since I walked in 7 pm. Apparently half hour too early for Italian dinner. The waiters were very nice and seated me. The raw tuna watercress salad was very...More

We got to Rome every May, and we were staying nearby at Hotel Capo D'Africa and this place is right across from the Colosseum. Just a block away from all the touristy places, Il Bocconcino is a perfect Rome dinner. The Cacio e Pepe is...More

This was the WORST place my wife and I went in all of Rome - and there were a lot of bad places in Rome so that's saying a lot. We sat down and ordered a couple of drinks as it was very hot outside...More

Referred here by the desk clerk at Hotel Capo Africa, it was a good choice. Not traditional pasta but more of an eclectic type menu with offshoots of pastas, etc. Street is not really busy so outside seating is an option, but we elected to...More

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
