The lady that served us was very helpful and nice. Unfortunately the food was quite bad, especially the deserts. Deserts look really delicious, but they have a strong taste of butter only. We had carrot cake and cheese cake....disappointed.

A simple place for a fast lunch and dinner. Good food, but not a good service and very expensive! Simple deco, it's just a coffee, not a restaurant.

Good coffe and hot chocolate, large choice of cakes, good tiramisu, all with a reasonable price, so we had a good time here.

We came to this little place once, unfortunately discovered it on the last day :( We were served by a lovely lady from Ukraine. Very happy with her service. She explained the menu and we decided to order pizza. This was one of the best pizzas we tried in Rome. Definitely recommend.

We ate hot meals (gnocchi and lasagnr) and desserts here and both were nice. Waitress was very pleasant and fast to serve us. Prices are similar to other central places, 3-5 euro for coffee, 8 for pasta, 4-5 for beer, etc.

Actually the highest was in cafe greco but you get the feeling!5€ for a cappuccino is too much for me.there are better places in rome for a coffee in the center district. especially near the colosseum which is in walking distance.i m amazed by some people who write that its ok to pay something like 15-20€just for coffees and reheated...

Stumbled upon this place as I saw a bunch of locals sipping their espresso at the service bar- their vegetable frittata was lovely and so was their spinach and feta - make sure u have pastries so yummy

Well, this may be a biased review, since we were tired and hungry and craving for a cup of coffee (those who know me, know that I can't go on for more than 3 hours with no coffee). Like every cafe, in Italy their choices for sweets and pastries and paninis are amazing! I particularly enjoyed the ultra sweet pannacotta... More

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.
