This restaurant is in the area we were staying. We tried Pasta and local 'Saltenboka'/beef+proshuto/ and fried Mozzarella. The food was very nice and the staff polite and helpful. If you are in the area do visit it.

We dropped in for a late lunch, and decided just to have a few starters. We got several plates of different ham and cheese and that was really good. We skipped dinner later... Its more like a British pub, but the food is absolutely Italian.

Found this bar not too far from our hotel. Plenty of seating and good staff. Food and drinks are available. It's not cheap, but it's certainly the most reasonably priced bar we found in Rome. A few good evenings were had in here, and good...More

I came here with my parents and my partner, we had started off coming here for a few drinks because ideally it was situated right across the road from where we were staying. Needless to say, we eventually ended up staying there for dinner and...More

We went to Merulana cafe for cocktails. The environment was nice and the cafe well decorated! The cocktails where very tasteful! There wasn't a big variety but what we ordered were great!

We have dined twice here, different dishes which were well done. Wine is good also and service is excellent.

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
