Looked like a nice quiet place on the side streets.. Prices are high, food is terrible and the smell inside have a odour of toilet.. It's hard to ruin a bruschetta but they managed to do so. Paid 26 Euro for a bottle of water,...More

Expensive meal, waitress is nice as long as you choose what she suggests. After we got the "bill" which was a summary written by hand on paper ( no fiscal bill) we got a summary twice higher than it should be. Never again !

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
