I have been travelling all over Italy for the past few weeks and tonight's meal at La Taverna dei Fori Imperiali is by far the best meal I have had in Italy. It was recommended to me by a friend of a friend who had...More

AMAZING food - I am still in awe of their great tasting food, from starter to dessert. Make a reservation - it’s really worth visiting. Service is good too.

The food here was excellent - had the gnocchi with veal and truffle ragu and it was amazing. Make sure to make reservations a bit in advance. We made our reservation a day in advance and saw everyone who came without a reservation turned away.

Our hotel recommended so we thought we’d give it a try. We walked in 7:40pm with a bunch of empty tables only to be turned away. “Reservation only” he said. I feel like if that were true the website or our hotel would’ve told us.

Welcomed warmly and seated within minutes around 1330. Eggplant and artichoke appetizer could have been the main - excellent. I've always found eggplant to be acidic - but not here, it was delicately seasoned with capers. Almost like a ratatouille with only eggplant. The bread...More

Great place for pasta. Will come back. The pasta here has a great home feel to it. If you go to the Colosseum try to swing by this place.

We had a great meal but the service left a little to be desired. We had to ask three times to place our order and had to wait 45 minutes before we were waited on. Of course, people who came in after us were waited...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

Sorry for the delay in responding. I have only just seen your question. This restaurant is close to the colosseum. I would say from the Trevi fountain it would be a twenty minute walk.

Honestly I don't know. They are very family oriented, so maybe not open on Christmas...I would call them.
