We liked the food but the service could've been better. The waiter had to go ask if it was ok to split a dinner. 😒 Other than that the pasta carbonara was ok but the veil was great! Quiet atmosphere and great moscato wine!

Right around the corner from our hotel, we went there or first night in Rome with 10 of our family. They were nice, accommodating, and quick with service. Food was delicious, only the carbonara dish was underwhelming (bacon too big and hard to eat). Pizzas, pastas, steaks, and lasagna were fantastic. We came back for lunch 2 days later and... More

Excellent thin crust pizza. The house red wine was some of the best vino we had all week. The staff is crazy and entertaining.

Our first night in Rome and we found this wonderful place. We started off with some bread and then a great tomato, cheese and pineapple pizza. We sat outside on the sidewalk dining by candlelight and street lamps with the most excellent of servers. We will return.

Food is excellent. So much choice. Staff are attentive and helpful. Wanted to stay longer to taste more off the menu. Would thoroughly recommend that you eat here.

So delicious! Wish I could have tried everything! Went with my family - Dad had the Lasagna with mushrooms and white sauce - everyone at the table tried it and wished that's what they had picked! Delicious! House wine great! Pizza great! Service awesome - lots of fun!

This restaurant was a perfect ending to our almost 3 week journey of Italy. We actually stumbled upon it as we were looking for a place that also offered gluten free meals. Fantastic meal, the antipast di terra was great. Giorgio the owner was gracious and Christian, our waiter was probably the most engaging and personable waiter we had the... More

We tried quite a few restaurants in Rome but found this one to offer the best food and service. The staff are great and speak every language you can think of, and some you wouldn't expect either. The restaurant has lots of nationalities of people each night, including Italians, and their range of foods doesn't just include Italian food either.... More

We were caught up in the rain and decided to duck into this place for our evening meal. They were stacked out and now we know why. The food was incredible, the owner charming and the waiting staff amazing. It's a simple traditional Italian Pizzeria, cosy, comforting with an extensive menu and very reasonable. If you are visiting Rome you... More

Staying in Monti

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
