Suggestions. Where to eat and drink
Cavour 313 has been around since 1979, and neatly fills its own dining niche in central Rome. The food on offer here consists of light, elegantly prepared dishes. On our last visit, the menu included a selection of cous-cous as well as involtini made with ricotta and cold cuts, served with honey and nuts. Their carpaccio is a perennial favourite.
While some of the main dishes can be on the light side, these can be supplemented with antipasto and desserts to make a full meal; in terms of dolci, we tried the granita alle mandorle, the gelato al pistacchio, and the semifreddo al torroncino. All were delicious.
As well as the printed menu, it’s worth taking a look at the specials on the board: there’s usually a good variety on offer there as well.
Their list of wines covers over a thousand labels, and many of the bottles are displayed in racks that blend into the dark wooden decor, giving Enoteca Cavour 313 a cosy feeling—elegant but not stuffy.
In terms of price, three of us had main dishes, desserts, and coffee, and we had one antipasto to share. Along with a single glass of wine, the bill came to €60.
Monti is the name of one of the twelve Rioni of Rome, rione I. The name literally means mountains in Italian and comes from the fact that the Esquiline and the Viminal Hills, and parts of the Quirinal and the Caelian Hills belonged to this rione. Its logo consists of three green mountains with three tops on a silver background.
This road is important from the point of view of culture for presence of various educational institutions. Going back over the years mention that in 1876 he founded the School in via Panisperna

In ancient times the rione was densely populated: in Monti there were the Forum Romanum and the so called Suburra(meaning suburbs in Latin): this was the place poor people lived, full of disreputable locals and brothels.
In the Middle Ages the situation was completely different: the Roman aqueducts were damaged, and it was very difficult to bring water to Monti since it was on the hills. Hence many inhabitants moved to Campus Martius, a lower level part, where they could drink the water from the river Tiber.
From the Middle Ages to the beginning of the 19th century, the rione remained an area full of vineyards and market gardens. Monti was not densely populated because of the lack of water and because it was quite far from the Vatican, the center of Christian culture. The area did not become abandoned thanks to the church of San Giovanni in Laterano and the constant high number of pilgrims.
Still in the Middle Ages the inhabitants of Monti, called monticiani, developed a strong identity: their Roman dialect was different from that spoken in the other rioni. Their main enemies were the people from the other rione with a strong identity,Trastevere, and they often used to fight with one another.
Then, with growing urbanization at the end of the 19th century after Rome had become the capital of a united Italy, the great changes of the Fascist period completely changed the appearance of the rione. In particular, between 1924 and 1936, a large part of the rione, consisting of small streets and popular houses, was destroyed to make way for the Via dei Fori Imperiali (the street artificially dividing the Roman Forum and most of the Imperial forums) and the archaeological buildings of the Forum Romanum were excavated.
Thanks to its position, Monti is full of archaeological sites such as:
