Not far from the Forum and fantastic food. Be sure to have a reservation for dinner. Food is quite well cooked and superbly served. A true neighborhood gem!

Monti is one of the more à-la-page neighbourhood of Rome, with hipsters and tourists gathering there by the dozens. However if you take one of the streets on the right of it (facing the Coliseum), such as via Baccina and via della madonna dei monti you will find more quiet and empty places, less touristic bars and restaurants, and the...

Stopped in for lunch on the recommendations on trip advisor and we weren't disappointed. Our meal was delicious, and the service very friendly. I would have no hesitation in recommending for a meal

We almost missed this restaurant due to the hour-long wait time on a Friday night. So glad we stayed to try it! The service was exceptional, and several waiters all attended us very pleasantly, even in a full restaurant. Every course we tried was delicious! We would absolutely return to eat here again and try more of their menu.

We were looking for a highly rated restaurant in the area and stopped in to ask if they had availability. We were greeted with an unsmiling server whose curt manner left us feeling unwelcome. If you go down the street to Taverna Romana you will find much nicer people and wonderful food.

Very friendly and accommodating staff, was late due to Uber, no problem. Gluten free paradise. Excellent dishes, good wine list, and very neighbourly feeling to the place. Great location to walk around afterward.

Firstly the dinner opening time listed on TA is wrong. It opens at 7.30pm sharp. Given the crowd waiting to go in, expectations were high. Unfortunately mains were average. Carbonara was too salty ( it's the bacon causing the saltiness), sliced beef was rather tough, lamb chops not tasty. Only thing I liked was the gnocchi truffles. Desserts were pannacotta... More

Rome has some great food and this restaurant was not exception! The service was superb. Wine was amazing. Great prices for excellent food and service. The gluten free pasta was unique and flavorful and the gluten free almond cake was a pleasant surprise!

Thank lhseattle

Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets.
