We went to this place several times. You can eat upstairs and we have heard that breakfast is excellent. You can buy food there and eat it in the restaurant area which we did one evening when we stopped for Apperitivo and plates made up...More

I went to look for gourmet/foreign products, which they are famous for carrying. This particular location has a more limited selection compared to the others, and all are fairly expensive (the market section). The coffee is excellent. I've rarely eaten anything here, but the quality...More

Went to buy chocolates. Amazing selection. We spent ages choosing chocolates for gifts. Unfortunately staff were not friendly. Didn't bother to stop chatting to each other during the short time it took to pay.

We spent quite a while looking around at the wide range of goods available in this lovely food store, it was fabulous, especially the hand decorated packaging for Christmas gifts. We made time to visit again for coffee and a snack

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
