We decided to try Crab during our week in Rome. We ate in a number of very nice restaurants but this was a highlight for us. The restaurant itself has a very nice atmosphere. Not too formal but not entirely casual either, a nice balance....More

We went here after a long day at the Coliseum. We were the only ones in the whole restaurant for quite a while and everything seemed to be in slow motion. Our whole meal took over 2 hours and was very expensive. The food was...More

My family went there on our trip to Rome. Our server was fantastic in recommending several dishes and sharing among the group so we can try different item. She recommended the linguine and clams and brought out Bottarga...it was amazing. I would highly recommend.

This would be have been five stars if the service had been better. We weren't informed what the catch of the day was and after I'd made my selection from the menu - King Crab - I was told they didn't have it. Not good!...More

Excellent choice of seafood. Waitress was really helpful and told us what each dish we queried consisted of. Had fresh oysters, prawns, lobster and catch of the day which was sea bass and prosecco sold by the glass. Bonus. If you like fish and seafood...More

Caught in a cloudburst near the Colosseum with no shelter in sight, we huddled beneath one of the those beautiful Pines of Rome and continued to get hammered but the unrelenting rain. We had seen this restaurant on our walk and thought we’d try 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

Of course it depends on what you eat and drink but I would say about 45€ per person. A good meal and an average wine. Hope it would help you.
