Our party of four seasoned travellers happened across the restaurant when looking for somewhere for a late lunch. The food was excellent as was the service. Mario has a dry sense of humour and a relaxed attitude to work, including not rushing to present a...More

Awful!! If I could rate them zero I would! Rude rude rude! Would be a waste of a night! Try the rooftop bar at hotel forum down the road instead!

My son had his "wow" moment with the Gnocci and meat sauce here. We fell upon it after a stroll to the Colluseum and did not want to hit a tourist joint. Good food and great service is what we found.

Great location (on a narrow street not dar from Colosseum). Food is ok, prices are usual for Rome. But nothing special to remember.

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
