We absolutely loved this place so we visited twice during our 10 day visit. We sat outside both times and although slightly loud with traffic, the lights made it romantic. We arrived both times around 7pm and were able to get a table outside with...More

When you're in the mood for well-prepared Italian dishes, but not up for the full-on restaurant scene, sit yourself down here at this shady sidewalk cafe/bar/restaurant. The food is traditional, dependable, and good enough to return for. The staff are charming without being intrusive, and...More

To start with, a normal non-starving non-native eater is incapable of bravely consuming antipasti, primo, secundo and dessert without bursting at the seams.

On our very last night in Rome we strolled in the vicinity of our (great) hotel looking for something to eat. Ornelli was just around the corner, and it looked alright: it was pretty crowded by Italian- speaking groups, the music was nice, if too...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
