Made the mistake of ordering drinks without first checking the price. We checked the menu but it only listed food which seemed reasonably priced so we ordered drinks. We were horrified at a bill of 11 EUR for a very average coffee and hot chocolate....More

Way to expensive. Euro5 for a cappuccino, which was served cold. Pastry filled with cold (almost frozen chocolate) was priced at Euro1.50 for take away and Euro2 for eating in. The cashier was rude and so was the waitress.

We have recently spent 3 days/nights in Rome and found this little street side cafe/bar, literally two minutes walk from our hotel. After spending our first night here for dinner we were hooked. Great food, great prices and fantastic customer service. The entire outside area...More

I was sitting at my table drinking what was, furthermore, a rather bad coffee. A middle-aged waitress walked by my table and dropped a very heavy glass filled with cold coffee which shattered in pieces staining my trousers. Worst still, this heavy glass fell violently...More

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

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
