Found this restaurant as it was highly rated and near to way we were staying. We though we would go here for our last meal in Rome. Very unassuming from the outside, it’s a different story inside. Nice service, frequented by locals, I ordered the...More

From our window we could see this lovely restaurant. After many carbs, it was nice to order a special made salad and enjoying a local red wine. They knew exactly what we needed.

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

My grandmother and I ate twice at Il Bocconcino. Once for lunch and once for dinner and it was wonderful! The pasta was delicious and perfectly al dente. I definitely recommend taking your time there and start with an appetizer, a first plate a second...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
