Went on a bit of a whim. Small but crowded restaurant, largely (but not exclusively) patronised by tourists. Food was OK and competitively priced, although slightly odd (for example, sliced raw tomatoes served with scallopine). But not as odd as the waiting staff, whose activities...More

I’ve eaten in many, many restaurants in Italy and this was by some distance the absolute worst of them. They do say that you should eat where the locals eat...not always possible but Italian would be seen dead near this place. Terrible service......ageresive rude manager....,,bland...More

The food is good ad the prices very moderate, but the service is a disaster. We had a waiter (may be Egyptian) who did not understand Italian. He got angry when I tried to speak with him in English. When one of the persons of...More

An extremely popular restaurant, we were staying across the street and every night people were queuing out the door. We tried to make a reservation for the following evening but even though we were told "no problem" the waiter refused to write anything down and...More

I do t call this the best restaurant in Rome lightly. I lived a few doors down from this trattoria for 4 months and I ate here a few times a week. I really think it's the best restaurant in the city. The food is...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

I doubt it - this restaurant probably specialises in gluten. To be honest it would be like asking a question in a fish and chip shop as to whether you could have a fat free and fish free takeaway. As for booking - the... More
