First place I’ve payed for something I didn’t eat. Vegetable soup without a single vegetable. All food was served cold. Only one person speaks in English. Definitely they don’t care about tourists.More

Staff have no manners. Frozen gluten free lasagne from a microwave and also came with a broken fork to eat with. Burger was disgusting. Completely overpriced. Salt looked like toe nails. Won't be eating here again!More

Ripped off - charged €8 for a glass of beer in a back street bar with no views, atmosphere or anything else to recommend it. Avoid, Avoid, Avoid!

Nice small diner with excellent food and very good service. A taste of Italy you shouldn't pass up because of the small size of the restaurant. Food was tasty service was good and staff very friendly.

We had to eat in this place because it was the only opened restaurant. The pizzas were really bad and the price is too high for what they offer. Not to come back ever.More

Sorry for writting this review but it was the most horrible pasta I’ve ever eaten. It was microwaved and it had absolutely no flavour or taste. The lasagna was decent, eatable, but not the best. You need to pay an extra 1,5€ for the pasta...More

As some others say, I think that eating here is a bit unreasonable to what you get in terms of food and atmosphere (even in this touristic area.) We agreed with the prices on menu list and estimated 18 euros for a pizza, cacio e...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
