My partner and I called in here simply because it was close to our accommodation. The staff couldn't be more welcoming and the pasta was delicious. Best food we had in Rome. It was so good we came back the night after! Would highly recommend.

I went there twice and they have very good cornettos and espresso:) You can seat outside for extra 2€ but I decided to have my 1€ cornetto and espresso inside the cafe:)

The pasta I had was the best in Rome! I forget the exact name, pardon, but it is spaghetti, bacon, cheese, and pepper. I had it for lunch and it was just great. I'm a happy girl! I highly recommend and it's nice too pricey!...More

We are just back from visiting the beautiful city of Rome, and happened to stumble across this lil restaurant when the place we were originally going to go was completely full. We both ordered the spaghetti carbonara, which was absolutely incredible. The portion size 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
