Although close to our hotel we discovered only on a pizza tour. Always fresh products. We came back and each time impressed by the quality and service. By the way you may be the only tourist .open early till late night.

Nice typical Italian food with young Italians. You can have nice things , focaccie, pizza and also days specials. The prices are very correct, but you have to go before 13.30 , in order to find variety.

We ended up heading here for a late breakfast on two of the three mornings of our trip - having copious amounts of pizza both times! This is exactly the kind of food we wanted in Roma. The cafe is clean, food delicious and staff friendly. We did find it amusing that the pizza is sold by weight (not used... More

With each trip to Rome, we go at least once or twice to this pasticeria for their wonderful homemade pastries and delicious cuts of pizza. Very friendly place, nice service and good value for the money. Spacious and clean bathroom too.

We were staying nearby so I actually went there a times during my stay in Rome. The pastries and biscotti are good and fresh (through the back door you can see the next batches as they are being made) but the service could really improve - each time I was surprised at how dismissive and impatient they were with tourists,...

After numerous disappointments experienced in the food and atmosphere in city center restaurants, we finally found a place with wide range of tasty fresh food (pizza, salads, burgers, pastries), great location and reasonable prices. The pizza, the ceasar salad and the cheseecake is a must!

Lovely place which offers a variety of freshly made delicious pizza - crunchy bottom with soft top. Pizza is sold by kg and you can choose how big your pieces will be and they cut it in front of you. They are open even for a late night food.

Thank Delty

Staying in Monti

Neighbourhood Profile
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 Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
