We found this little cafe where the food is excellent. The staff are friendly and helpful. We had the Lemon Chicken, Pizza, Greek Salad, and Fettuccine. Everything was freshly prepared and came out steaming hot. Very tasty and delicious.

We ate here when all the other restaurants were closed during the afternoon. The food was decent, but definitely not the best food in Rome. The menu has lots of options and they have wifi, which is always nice.

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
