This restaurant was a good choice for our last night in Rome. The food was excellent, I had the Amatriciana and my partner had the Scaloppine. Both dishes met our expectations. The restaurant was a little quiet, but only because we wanted to eat early(6pm)....More

I went there twice and they have very good cornettos and espresso:) You can seat outside for extra 2€ but I decided to have my 1€ cornetto and espresso inside the cafe:)

My 15 year old son and I visited today as it is just around the corner from where we are staying for a few days in Rome. The carbonara was nothing like I have tasted before. Nothing like the creamy dish back in England. My...More

It wasn't not a bad experience but not a great one either. The service was very slow even though the waiter was very kind and polite. The caprese salad was a very good start but the chicken with lemon served without any side (I wish...More

The pasta I had was the best in Rome! I forget the exact name, pardon, but it is spaghetti, bacon, cheese, and pepper. I had it for lunch and it was just great. I'm a happy girl! I highly recommend and it's nice too pricey!...More

Amazing food here. The parmigiana was unbeatable! Decent prices, friendly staff, and good wine selection too. We had a great dinner out with the family. Inside is not quite as beautiful as the outside seating area, but still full of atmosphere as the evening progresses.

We loved Ornelli. We found it while stumbling back from the Colosseum to our hotel. It's on the corner of a street with greenery and outdoor seating and we fell in love with it the second we walked in. Ornelli's staff were friendly, considerate and...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
