Stumbled upon this wandering around a mall neighborhood behind the Coliseum. Waiter, Pietro, welcomed us in. He was gregarious but not overbearing, offering suggestions for both food and wine. All the food was prepared to perfection. Gnocchi, w basil and tomatoes as light as feather,...More

Nice little spot for lunch or dinner, a stones throw from the colosseum. Great ingredients are obviously used to produce fantastic pasta, will return given the slightest opportunity.

I had eaten here about 3 years ago, and was happy to find that this time I liked it even better. We ended up going twice - sitting outside (the street isn't noisy) and also inside (pleasant by the large open windows). The food is...More

We were looking for a restaurant close to our hotel (Lancelot) and after being unable to get a table at a well-reviewed restaurant, we set out to Il Bocconcino. The service was not great, the wine list short, but the food was very good and...More

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel. It was our first meal in Rome. As the hotel had recommended it, I was a bit dubious though, BUT........ It was a delightful suprise. When I look at alot of the other reviews of this restaurant,...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
