There is such a fine line between having the feeling of being in a "tourist trap" or being "an International tourist enjoying a meal with like minded people". This restaurant knows exactly where the line is and does not cross it, therefore they are deservedly popular. We had booked and we sat amongst well dressed tourists from many nations. This... More

My husband and I attempted to get a table here for dinner after arriving late to our hotel from the airport but were told we needed a booking. Disappointed, we went round the corner and had an average and forgettable meal somewhere on via Cavour. The next day, we were lucky enough to score a table outside for lunch -... More

This was my third visit to La Taverna dei Fiori Imperiali in the Monti neighborhood near the Colosseum, and the third time was as great as the first. Its a very small place, so be sure to book in advance, and do not be offended if they offer you the table in the back near the kitchen. It has the... More

A person I met at a bar in Las Vegas recommended this restaurant to me ...and thank goodness he did. What a find! This cozy little restaurant is run by a welcoming patriarch named Allesio and his charming daughter Claudia. They have created a wonderful restaurant with outstanding food and delicious wine. At Allesio's recommendation, we ordered a pasta medley.... More

I visited this restaurant a few months ago and thought it was delicious food, even if the service was less than ideal. This week I had a chance to visit again with a couple of friends and had such a fantastic experience I felt compelled to write a review. We made reservations for Wednesday evening, 8 pm. We were escorted... More

We had wanted to try this restaurant since our last visit when we walked by and were not able to sit without a reservation. This trip we booked in advance and arrived 30 min early but were quickly greeted and seated. Staff was fantastic making us feel very welcome with the owner coming and bringing us water for the table... More

We had lunch here and we loved it. This place is just right by the Colosseum and Forum Romanum. Not as touristic as other bigger places. We loved it. They serve good pasta for a fair price (I loved the pommodore/basilico) and the place has this really familiar interior with pictures of the family and of Rome. The service is... More

We went there on recommandation of a friend. The place looks traditional and a bit upmarket. Welcome was not very nice from the waiters, only one girl was far above the others. They told us in a hurry that kitchen was closing, yet a family arrived like 20min later or more because they had booked and they still were able... More

Visited on our first night in Rome following a recommendation from a friend. It happened to be minutes from our hotel (Nerva Boutique) but is down a side street so not easy to find. Schoolboy error we failed to book and on turning up at 7.45 we were told earliest table (inside) would be 9.30. To be fair after looking... 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 Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
