Nothing Italian about this place, and that's why it is great. Nothing wrong with Italian bars/restaurants, but frankly the Irish REALLY know how to create a pub atmosphere. It's a bit out of the way, but just down the street from a Basilica (Marie something). They don't open until 5 p.m., but then again, they are not really about the... More

Would be ok at weekend with some music. Other than that small bar with reasonable price drinks. It's typical bar in back Street dark not inviting a drinking bar with sports TV

Just popped in for a late night drink and just loved the vibe. I felt like I was transported to Ireland. We didn't eat but we enjoyed hanging out. They had live music and a big group of Irish (or Scottish) guys made their way here so it appears the reputation is worth its weight in salt. Drink up.

We tried another Irish bar in town which has a full menu (including dessert) and Irish staff. This has Guinness on draught (a plus) but the only food they appeared to have was bagged chips. Italian bartenders were friendly and prices were good. We didn't see a server.

After a long day and a late lunch, we found Fiddler's Elbow near our hotel and stopped in for a quick pint of cold Smithwick's. We ended up staying a few hours and having a few more pints. Clientele was a nice mixture of locals and visitors from all over the world. Staff was very nice and the bar food... More

Popped in for a quick Guinness whilst the other half was getting ready. Great little place, shows the horse racing. What more can you ask from an Irish pub.

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.
