We stopped at the Bottega del Cafe and enjoyed a very good meal in a nice location. The service was good and the price reasonable. The location is only a few hundred metres from the Colosseum. As we left the cafe we were met by a large crowd socially standing in the plazza around a nearby fountain. Curiosity got the... More

Stopped off for a quick lunch at this place after visiting the Colisseum. From the outside it looks great, nice location, great outdoor seating area looks really inviting. The food though, is average at best - some of our group had the pasta dishes and they were reheated in the microwave and were severely lacking in taste. The sandwiches were... More

Two years after and the place is still great... No one is waiting to get rid of you (minimum we stayed there 40 min) and the waitor comes immediately to get your order. The capuccino costs 3,5 euro I think (could be 4, not so sure, sorry) ande assortments come alongside. These assortments (really tasty sfogliatini) plus no hidden service... More

Bottega del Caffe is a great spot from early morning to after dinner drinks. It's right on the Piazza Madonna dei Monti, which is the dead center of the trendy Monti area. This is not fine dining, but you can grab breakfast, lunch or dinner here. The menu is not exhaustive but there is enough choice to please just about... More

Great location and it was lovely to sit outside under the gazebo next to a heater (visited in January). Food was OK, but nothing special. I had ravioli which was nice enough, but lacked real flavour as you'd expect from a restaurant in Italy. Service was a bit slow too, but overral it was a nice enough stop for lunch.

Good stop for lunch - food reasonably priced but not much attention from staff. Food arrived before drinks. Ravioli was ok - pasta was quite thick and chewy.

This was near our B & B and we stopped in a couple of times for take-away coffees and the place was always buzzing, so we decided to go there for dinner. Good decision! We had spaghetti carbonara and margherita pizza - both were beautiful. Along with a lovely glass of wine, we couldn't ask for a better Italian meal.... More

The bar is situated in the city center, 5 minutes by walk from the colosseum. The bar is nice but nothing special for the price that they have. The food is good but not enough (always considering the price u re paying). I want to emphasize the dessert, we ate a special piece of cake and one millefoglie. Best regards!

Happened upon this place and had a great lunch. Pasta, pizza were both excellent. Good spot to people watch while relaxing. Service was quick and friendly. Not super touristy either.

We love Italian snacks with wine. This lovely stop during our travels provided warm little pizzas, delicious bread rolls with salami and cheese and toasted focaccia. Quiet cafe. Nice service and a nice price too.
