It's a real tourist trap! 5 euros for a cappucino. Come on! it's not Ritz Carlton or Kempinsky. Service was ok until I asked for the prices charged. It's clearly a system. Worst ever visit in italy. Still I visit Italy 3-4 times a year....More

Had good risotto in this resto. Good location as it's in front of a major attraction in Rome. Plentiful choices for dessert. Good service from their friendly Filipino waiter.

Nothing more to say. Cakes look good but it is a complete rip off. Courses seem to be decently priced so you don't expect such a steep bill for a couple of drinks. It's not like the Coca Cola was served in a gold goblet...More

This is the worst Italian restaurant I've ever been to. I ordered fettuccine al porcini. The pasta was way under cooked, the sauce and mushrooms had little taste, and the service was very bad. I ate two bites and couldn't eat the rest. The waiter...More

Starting from the place itself, it's quite bad, it looks dirty with dust and garbage everywhere. Well, it can't imagine what's going on in the kitchen. The waiters are terrible, you don't feel welcome at all, it looks like they don't want you in there....More

I strolled in to this 80% empty restaurant over 40 minutes before closing. They obviously didn't want to interrupt their cleaning and seat me. I got a bit of brusque talk from the fellow who did seat me, and the dirtiest look I have ever...More

The deserts and cakes here looked fantastic. However, we didn't try them because the size of the pasta course was huge. We only had one meal there so the following may not represent all dishes - the sauces on the pasta were unusual, they had...More

Just capped off a long day of exploring Rome and walked right by this place and took a look around. Delicious dessert, but just a tad on the pricey side. Not a big surprise considering the location though. Staff was really friendly so a great...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
