Great bar! They have fantastic shots and mixed drinks, or even just a beer if that's what works for you. Alessio is the best and will not only get you and your friends drinks but will take the chance to get to know you a...More

We went there to watch the worldcup match. On a big sign they say „happy hour - every day between 18.00 und 22.00“ that doesn‘t count for Soccer matches. You‘ll recognize it when you get the bill. During the Second half the owner forced everyone...More

Almalu is a hole in the wall type of place with awesome employees and great specials. They have original and out there drinks/shots that are fun to try. The more you get to know the staff, the more fun the place becomes!

Great little bar in the Trastevere area. Friendly staff and in particular Alleso always had a chat while serving our drinks. The music was great. Well worth a visit

Stumbled across this place trying to find a reasonably priced spritz. It was empty except for us while we were there. A good long island iced tea and the owner and staff were both very friendly, providing crisps and general chat. One BIG downside though...More

Went to a bar nearby advertising 1 euro shots but they said we had to be 'students'. Well once upon a time we were all bloody students. Almalu advertised 1 euro shots and gave us 1 euro shots! Nice little place for a cheap drink...More

The bar staff were incredibly friendly and chatty. The owner asked what flavours we liked and made us cocktails to suit, which were spot on. So good that we went back again. They have special offers most nights making it affordable. Such a lovely atmosphere...More

Nothing much to add to the title, it was happy hour so a nice reduction to 5 euros for the drink. Would definitely go back for more.

Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded
postcard, a little worn around the edges but still
charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering
streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and
overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible
mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of
entertainment - a rotating set of street performers
entertains almost every night, and unforgettable
