Monti has an onslaught of restaurant openings which have arrived over the last years creating a "cool" image for food & wine the area. For me, many of them fall very short of delivering a solid experience; the classics always reign. There you have Trattoria Monti. Family Run with helpful and inviting service: Check. Truly Great Food: Check. Truly Great... More

All the food we ordered was excellent (fried vegetables like fiore di zuccha, penne with saussage and a cake of jelly and strawberry). The service was very kind, and the restaurant is cozy

Our family dined in Trattoria Monti last summer. Everything was perfect! The waiter was hilarious (our kids loved that), food was excellent and the atmosphere delightful. We ordered a set menu with local specialities, kids had pasta. We arrived very early, actually immediately after the restaurant was open for diners. That was a good move since we didn't have a...

This was a good restaurant offering several specialty plates. We particularly liked the stuffed, fried olives and the sensational large raviolo with spinich, ricotta cheese and a fried egg. Their pasta selection was great and offered cooking styles from many different regions. A fun place with a fun staff and very good food.

First for lunch, then later for dinner. Each time, given a friendly welcome, in spite of how busy the restaurant was. Enjoyed two fine meals, especially the unusual tortello uova. But, in addition, it was the sense that diners were having a good time there that made the experience special.

Despite some of the bad reviews we encountered two delicious meals. Banter with the waiters. I think you need to speak a little of the language of the country you visit. We had wonderful pasta, excellent risotto, slightly better than I cook. Roasted Veal and Tripe wonderful. Not to everybody's taste but I love this on the continent. Very reasonably... More

Went here earlier this week for my Wifes 60th birthday. I had booked via our hotel after reading great reviews as I wanted a special meal for the occasion. The evening didn't start well as the door was locked and we stood outside for 10 minutes. We were then told our booking was not at the time clearly advised by... More

Almost by chance visited this wonderful restaurant. Great service and even great food. The carpachio anti-pasti was great, pasta, pig, rabbit and amaretto ice scream were all wonderful. We had to personally thank the chef.

This restaurant had been recommended highly and the reviews seemed to agree. We arrived on time and weren't fazed by the fact that our table wasn't ready. We were a group of 7. Other people came in after us and despite trying to order wine and water we were ignored. When the food arrived one of the main courses was... More

Staying in Esquilino

Neighbourhood Profile
Esquilino
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighbourhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighbourhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic centre. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
