All in all PHO1 will suffice if you have a craving for something different than an Italian restaurant in Rome. The spring rolls were good and Pho was acceptable.

Small but cozy place, super fast service, delicious food. The only thing is the Bun is served on a plate instead of in a bowl, so it's difficult to mix it up. Other than that, I was totally satisfied and didn't spend too much either....More

Rather disappointed given the overall rating of the reviews. We had three different Pho between us, Pho Tai and Bun Bo Hue, Pho Bo Ban. Base stock was good, but rest indifferent and a long, long way from the standard expected in Vietnam, Paris, Manchester...More

After almost two weeks of pasta and pizza, we were craving for a bowl of pho. This place did not disappoint. We ordered the spring rolls and two large bowls of pho. Serving size was good, the broth was tasty. We came out content.

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
