Beautiful place with modern decoration. The bottle wall behind the bar is astounding. The long bar is full of taps with nice Italian and some imported droughts. Full Balladin range. The finger food’s serving around looked attractive and especially the chips. Even if it’s noisy in busy days and less intimate than others, certainly it’s a must visit beer spot in Rome.
Locale chic, ben lontano dal concetto di pub che abbiamo in molti. Nonostante questo, l’ambiente è favoloso, ben arredato. Le tre sale che ho visto sono deliziose. Capitolo birre: oltre al duo Baladin-Borgo, sempre presenti per ovvii motivi, presentano una selezione di altri birrifici italiani, difficilmente reperibili altrove (tipo Birrone, Lambrate...). Non so quante spine abbiano a disposizione, ma non trovare una birra di proprio gradimento è pressocché impossibile. Passiamo al cibo. Decisamente troppo costoso, sebbene buono. Fanno pagare il nome dello chef? Eppure nella cucina a vista si vedono sempre tre bengalesi... Di certo non può essere il tuo pub (nell’accezione di "public house" della cultura inglese), ma ogni tanto, quando il portafoglio non piange, è un ottimo indirizzo a cui rivolgersi.
Visited a couple of times during a recent visit to Roma (Oct ’12).
One large room with a massive wall of bottles behind the bar, then a smaller side room.
When coming here it is a little easy to walk straight past as I did !
Sat at the bar on both occasions, service was a little erratic but overall friendly and knowledgeable.
Beers were E5 for 33cl pours or for a 20cl pour of the Xyauyu range. The latter was a nice touch as despite being bottled they had one of each bottle in a fridge at the correct temperature and would open a bottle and re-cork!
I also hit on the sampler on my 2nd visit. This wasn’t the greatest vfm deal at E20 for 5 20cl pours (excluding the Xyauyu’s) when you bear in mind E20 gets you 1.32l of 4 beers! Still the cheapest way to accumulate new rates tho’!
I had bar snacks on both visits, they were pitching at an American brew pub range, so various fried items and dips. Ok - but not top notch.
Good venue, good choice, a definate must visit on a trip to Roma.
A classic in Rome! the food is very good (maybe the best place to go to eat with beers). The tap list sometimes is very good others... a little bit "old"! last time i was there i found a very nice lagunitas Ipa in the bottle list!
Amazing place, come early for a great beer experience. Exceptional list of taps and bottles, with friendly staff to chat. The atmosphere was quiet in the afternoon, buzzing in the evening. The little shop at the entrance was great too.
Ottimo per mangiare un hamburger .... la scelta delle birre si è appiattita di brutto !!!

Nice bar and restaurent. The place both has a big crowded room and little rooms with small tables for more privacy. Very good service; I was particularly impresseed by the waiter - He remebered which beers I had already had and gave me advice accordingly. Nice burgers with an Italian touch if you order the right ones.
A tribute to the wonderful and ever evolving world of italian beer. Always packed, and for a reason, but the otherwise very competent service can suffer a bit from it. The selection is great, the food is beyond excellent, although everything has always seemed a bit expensive to me.
