The restaurant looked nice, but was not. Waiter did not bother to serve all and touched our food with his hands. Wine was also bad and expensive. Cannot recommend.

In a weak moment we were lured to sit down because it looked cosy and nice. Afterwards we have reflected and should have been warned by the unhappy faces of other guests. This placed served us the worst pasta we have ever had. I did...More

The very friendly waitress offered us daily pasta specials. We ordered three spaghetti dinners with meatballs and one spaghetti with shrimp. Also one pesto pasta. We were all a bit dehydrated and ordered five large bottles of water. The waitress offered a platter of cheeses...More

Seemed like the typically nice "hole-in-the-wall" local restaurant. Alas: bland food, pushy waitress and much upselling. Look somewhere else for good food.

Unacceptable. I am a chef and Italian cuisine is my favorite one to eat and cook and this is the worst food I have ever eaten. Too expensive for the worst quality. DON'T GO

Awful food, canned and reheated pasta sauce, rude waiter, overpriced wine and a RIP OFF. Do not ever visit this travesty of a restuarant.

Because of the rain n no internet I just tried by luck. It was a bad luck. Server was friendly but not very professional. Least Italian-like food I've ever had in Italy.

The cod (baccalà) was recommended by the waitress. Very small piece of fish. We ordered vegetables for two - these consisted of three small strips of zucchini, three slices of aubergine and a few strips of red pepper - for this we were charged €8....More

Rude intrusive waiter. No atmosphere. Overpriced. Pushy service trying to upsell. Additional charge of one euro per person to sit at a table in the restaurant. Stodgy flavourless carbonara. Watery tasteless prawn and mushroom pasta. Inauthentic. Cold restaurant and food. Made us feel ill afterwards....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
