This pub decorated in a modern British style has a nice selection of beers and an excellent limited lunch menu. The service was friendly and prompt and the prices are reasonable by Roman standards.

I am a little puzzled by the small number of poor reviews on Google for this restaurant (which seems to double as an Irish bar). We had excellent service from a very busy waitress and very enjoyable food - of which there is a good...More

We went to Merulana cafe for cocktails. The environment was nice and the cafe well decorated! The cocktails where very tasteful! There wasn't a big variety but what we ordered were great!

We had pasta and an Aperol Spritz here after a long day of walking around the Colosseum. The terrace seating area was a bit noisy, but the inside was very nice. The service was professional and the food was delicious.

The Merulana is a great spot for relaxing with a coffee or cocktail. Staff are friendly but not overly attentive. Food is good and the homemade potato chips which are offered with drinks are delicious. Good for meeting with friends for a drink.

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
