If I could give this place a 12 for service, I would. Manuele and his staff are the best! This place clearly deserves the wonderful reputation it has, with taps that rotate so often, if you take a break to go to the toilet, the beers will be different when you return. They share the beer cellar with Bir&Fud, so Manuele was very generous with pulling old beers from the cellar, making recommendations, and charging so little money it was crazy. Above all, the people are amazing! A great mixture of very friendly locals and expats. The foolish new law that makes drinking on the street illegal after 11 PM is annoying, but hasnt dampened spirits at all. THE place to visit in Rome.

You can get different, but you cannot get better than MCSVAF. It has the best selection possible--for me--and if I had a bar it would look a lot like this. There are places with more taps, and there are places with greater obscurity of selection, but there could not possibly be a better curated selection of beers. They seem to retain a dedicated Cantillon tap, and a Gnstaller tap. That alone would be enough to keep me happy but they also have a dedicated Itslian hoppy pils tap (it was Tipopils last night), and even two cask-conditioned English style ales (including a porter). Most of the other taps were Italian microbrews of high quality and breadth of style (black IPA;Flemish sour...). No duds. Even the double IPA was an intelligent choice of a Hillside Farmstead/Cigar City collaboration that knocked it out of the park. Unbelievable. I barely glanced at the bottle selections but they are the same caliber--from Cantillon onwards. All the other bar elements are in place too. Unpretentious friendly service even when busy; busy; tasteful music selection; terrible toilets; 7 days/week. TO GO cups. What more could you possibly want? OH--its in ROME!

Wow do I love this place. Ma Che Siete Venuti a Fa made my time in Rome a memorable one. The passion for quality beer is so refreshing and the range of beer on draught and in bottles is sensational. This is where beer geeks unite in Rome. No pretentiousness only an appreciation and thirst for the good stuff. I was overwhelmed by the generosity of the bar staff. Cheers for the Narke and Mikeller brews as well as the fantastic brews on tap that were available. Do not miss this place when in Rome.

Visited each of the 3 days I was in Rome (Oct 12). Very much in the style of an English pub with life and soul of the pub as you enter from street level with 4 or 5 bar stools at the bar, and smokers huddled round the outside. There are also seated areas as you go past the bar upstairs and down. Pub (as per its nickname) is decorated with football memorabilia from around Europe, I noted a Sheffield United shirt and a Heart of Midlothian scarf amongst many others! To the business end of proceedings ... 3 cask handpumps (although only one was being used on my visits) and around a dozen keg taps. Largely Italian craft brewers with a couple of Belgians on and one American offering in the form of Dark Horse - plead the 5th (which was priced cheaper than you would typically find it in London). The Italian beers were available in small or large and the small servings (33cl) were E4 for most of the ones I had. I was well looked after and discussed beers with all of the bar staff (who spoke very good English). Big shout to Luca (who is one of the brewers at Stavio) and also to Manuelle who was kind enough to pull a bottle of ITA lambic from the fridge and split it with me, Ill bring you something to split next time Im over. Great place - a MUST on a visit to Roma. Not the same selection as Open Baladin or even Bir & Fud, their other bar across the street, but a genuinely great beer destination!

One of the top spots in Rome and, indeed, one of the best bars in Europe. Not much to add at this point that hasnt been said already. Great beer, great selection. Only annoying thing is that I recall the sports on TV being a bit loud. But still, this is a must-visit beer place in Rome.

At some point or another we have all envisioned the perfect place for beer. Some people may envision a posh, large, modern, high-tech beer emporium with a tap list of 100 beers and a bottle list of 2,000 bottles. This is essentially ChurchKey in Washington DC. But ChurchKey has become a place for people to be seen, pay for overpriced wine at a beer bar to make a point, order a whiskey in front of a group of professional women to look sophisticated. ChurchKey is the ultimate beer bar, but with no character or charm.

Ma Che is the opposite of CK. Does it have 50 taps? No. Does it have 2,000 bottles in the cellar? No. Does it have a $5 million keg cooling unit with variable temperatures? No. Does it have a celebrity chef? No. Does it have rare beer sitting all over the shelves for you to ogle at but cant afford? No.

Ma Che is the best beer bar in the world because it was never trying to be the best. Ma Che is a hole in the wall off a side street in Rome that you can never find. The name alone is unpronounceable making tourists unable to ask where it is. But Ma Che is the ultimate. It is open from 10 am to 1 am everyday. You can take your beers outside onto the sidewalk and chat and meet new friends. Though the tap list is small, it rotates with ferocity. The only static tap is Tipopils, a world class session beer. The rotating taps include small breweries Ma Che has personal connections with: mostly Italian, but some American, Danish, Norwegian, British as well. Many beers on tap are made exclusively for Ma Che. The bottle list shared with Bir&Fud is extensive covering retired geuze to discontinued Italian rarities. There are beers here you cannot find anywhere else in the world. The bartenders are trained very well. Every beer poured from tap is a 5/5 for appearance. Ma Che is really a small, close knit group of friends- a hidden gem that people have made their home. This place has personality and a connection. It was my beer embassy in Italy. I made so many new friends and tried many exotic beers, some that I didnt even order! They just kept appearing. Ma Che completed a beer journey of a lifetime and I hope to return as soon as I possibly can.

Very characteristic ambiance, with good music; last time I was there is was not packed, luckily. Top beers on tap (I wonder how the rotation is though); Im always happy to see a few Germans available; rarish bottles, but I think the prices are too high there.
Great place for the after dinner hang out.

Manuele and company are running one of the worlds best little craft beer bars! Here are some details of my experience there and Bir & Fud: benedetta.html

What a superb place to visit. It is small, but there is room through the back, and it is difficult to get to the bar in a position to see whats available, but what it lacks in size it more than makes up for in welcome. Remarkable.

Take the H bus and give off at the first stop across the Tiber. I love the Atmosphere here when its early and not so crowded. Service is excellent whether its Manuele or his bartenders serving you. Perfect pours. You might have to wait a bit when its busy. Amazing selection on tap and in bottles, with a good mix of both Italian and imported beers. When its crowded, it can be a bit uncomfortable if you dont like standing around in a crowd, so I advise going early and chilling out. Manuele is a great host.
