With each trip to Rome, we go at least once or twice to this pasticeria for their wonderful homemade pastries and delicious cuts of pizza. Very friendly place, nice service and good value for the money. Spacious and clean bathroom too.

Good lasagne and decent panini's. Great service and good value for money. Timely assistance for a very busy place. Space for seating and there is wifi inside.

We were staying nearby so I actually went there a times during my stay in Rome. The pastries and biscotti are good and fresh (through the back door you can see the next batches as they are being made) but the service could really improve - each time I was surprised at how dismissive and impatient they were with tourists,...

After numerous disappointments experienced in the food and atmosphere in city center restaurants, we finally found a place with wide range of tasty fresh food (pizza, salads, burgers, pastries), great location and reasonable prices. The pizza, the ceasar salad and the cheseecake is a must!

Lovely place which offers a variety of freshly made delicious pizza - crunchy bottom with soft top. Pizza is sold by kg and you can choose how big your pieces will be and they cut it in front of you. They are open even for a late night food.

Great little bistro and buffet restaurant, very popular with the locals. Only a few tables but very good food for a very reasonable price.

We walked past this place one evening and could see the chefs piping delicious looking fillings into amazing smelling croissants so we decided to pop in for breakfast. We came in around 11am and had two croissants, which seemed to be made of filo pastry. They were filled with white chocolate and nutella respectively, incredibly rich but very nice. I... More

Well actually it was 4th in Rome. And I just wanted to have a really really good breakfast. I read the recommendations and I saw that they give 'open buffet' breakfast.I searched for a dream of open buffet breakfast. I found the place finally. But the breakfast...well it was good but wasn't that big as I expected. Accept that a... More

Very disappointed by our visit to this cute little bakery. We were enticed by the lunch buffet advertised outside and could easily see that the place served a wide selection of pizzas and tempting cakes, so the price of €10 per person (including a drink) seemed reasonable. Sadly, in our haste to secure the only available seat we then discovered... More

Went here a couple times during our stay in Rome last week. The bakery items looked spectacular but the taste was, sadly ... meh. Tried the chocolate-filled croissant, the ricotta- filled sfogliatella, and apple tart. Apple tart was the tastiest but the sfogliatella seemed really dry, and I purchased this one in the morning, so I wouldn't think this should... More

Staying in Monti

Neighbourhood Profile
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 Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
