The owner is very friendly and can help with suggestions in English. They have a great variety of wine for every taste and also very good live jazz music.

Simply intimate and right place for a relaxing glass of wine with typical Italian food and live jazz concerts. A piano in the place nobilittes and elevate the design standards of the winebar. Better before 23 as kitchen closes early. Better to reserve, no more than 30 people seated.

This wine bar was a brief walk from our hotel and served amazing wine by the glass. We had poor service to begin with because the guy ( one only) was run off his feet and we went at a very busy time but he apologised and once we had a glass in hand and the food came ( limited... More

Lovely little spot just a few short blocks from bad tourist food. Get there a little early in the evening (7ish) and you can get a table and enjoy a spritz and their beautiful aperitivo plate. Prices reasonable and service prompt. Great selection of various dishes that aren't your typical trattoria fare. At times you want something different.

The food in this restaurant is outstanding. It is worth going a few streets away to see where the locals eat! Very authentic Italian cuisine. You will not find pasta and pizza on the menu but you will get the best service.

It seems to serve mostly locals, and the quality is good - in this area it's easy to find plenty of tourist traps but this one certainly is not one of them. We were there for lunch, with the whole family - everyone enjoyed their dishes from lunch special to sandwiches. Ingredients were very good and very fresh, no fault... More

Went for lunch. There is not much selection but just enough. Menu of the day was simply delicious, friendly service, natural (bio) food. Great "barley" beer from local brewery. Away from the tourist crowd!

Very pretty restaurant/bar with friendly staff and good music. We ordered the 10 Euro plate of the day which came with soup of the day, meat or fish, salad and fruit plus a glass of wine. The food was lovely and staff friendly. Not great value for what we got but not bad. A nice quiet spot in a massively... More

My wife and I found this place while walking near the Colosseum one afternoon. It looked very classy from the outside versus the more casual mom and pop snack bars around the area. We checked the menu and it looked like a perfect spot for espresso's and a sandwich. Inside was very tastefully decorated and it became obvious to us... More

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.
