This restaurant is really small and hard to get a reservation, but I was able to get a table after simply showing up. The “atmosphere” is basic: tables, a slightly open kitchen, and a simple menu. But the food truly shines. The bucatini amatriciana was...More

Food was good, but the service was so slow. We waited for every interaction with the server, from ordering, waiting for food, having the check... The food was tasteful and really family style.

Tucked away from the busy streets and overpopulated touristy areas, this hidden gem provided the perfect Italian food experience for me and my boyfriend. We were so afraid of going to places that would take advantage of our ignorance of true Italian cuisine, but this...More

This is a little restaurant not too far from the Colosseum and Forum. We had to wait a little bit because the place was packed and it is not too big but the wait was worth it. We got a carbonara, a matriciana, a cold...More

My wife and I were down in the region of the forum and wanted a nice place for lunch. Most of the places in the area are typical Roman tourist restaurants with hawkers out side. We avoid them if at all possible. The Taverna was...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
