I strolled in to this 80% empty restaurant over 40 minutes before closing. They obviously didn't want to interrupt their cleaning and seat me. I got a bit of brusque talk from the fellow who did seat me, and the dirtiest look I have ever gotten from a stranger, a woman behind the counter. Look, it's not my fault that... More

The deserts and cakes here looked fantastic. However, we didn't try them because the size of the pasta course was huge. We only had one meal there so the following may not represent all dishes - the sauces on the pasta were unusual, they had strong flavour and were quite thick, so the dish was very filling. Hence our inability... More

Just capped off a long day of exploring Rome and walked right by this place and took a look around. Delicious dessert, but just a tad on the pricey side. Not a big surprise considering the location though. Staff was really friendly so a great experience overall!

Staff were very rude and un welcoming. Food was average. We had pizza and pasta, couldn't fault the food but it was just a bit plain. Price was a little high for the restaurant standards.

We stayed at a nearby hotel. Had an hour to kill before heading to the Roma Termini. We decided to stop in for a quick coffee and a snack. 2 (small) panini and 2 cappuccinos later = 18 Euro!!! I'm used to expecting higher prices near tourist attractions - but $5 for a regular cappuccino is robbery! Do yourself a... More

Visiting this cafe was probably the worst part of my entire trip to Rome. The man servicing the pastry area was the rudest individual I have possibly ever encountered in my lifetime. He was smug and made rude comments of disgust when I was trying to explain the pastry that I was interested in. He makes rude gestures of disgust... More

Staying in Monti

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.
