The Scene

Established in 2001 as a football bar, the theme at the amusingly named Ma che Siete Venuti a Fa' (What the Hell Are You Doin' Here) was originally based on the two owners' amicable rivalry between Rome's two football teams...

Established in 2001 as a football bar, the theme at the amusingly named Ma che Siete Venuti a Fa’ (What the Hell Are You Doin’ Here) was originally based on the two owners’ amicable rivalry between Rome’s two football teams, an idea still apparent in the collection of jerseys and scarves that line the walls next to posters and photos of the teams.

The bar has since discarded its initial sports focus to concentrate on specialty beers, and was the first venue in Rome to import handcrafted beers from Germany, Denmark, Belgium, the UK, and the US, and to grant exposure to some small Italian beer producers.

Consisting of just two narrow rooms and a bar, the venue’s floor-to-ceiling wood paneling creates a warm and cozy atmosphere where knowledgeable bartenders are happy to educate patrons about all things beer and let them sample the rotating selection of international brews.

Unlike most beer pubs in town that attract primarily English-speaking crowds, the clientele at Ma che Siete Venuti a Fa’ is made up of curious and appreciative locals who create a welcoming, down-to-earth vibe.

But don’t think sports have entirely disappeared from the mix here – on game days, visitors will still find boisterous crowds that pack the bar and spill onto the street to cheer on their favorite teams.

Tip from Lucas:

The bartenders are happy to let patrons sample a few beers before deciding on one. Those in an adventurous mood can take full advantage of the extensive selection by ordering a series of small glasses of different beers.

  • Crowd

    Casual male-dominated crowd of local regulars, football fans, and a smattering of students and alternative types, late teens to early 50s, though mostly 20s and 30s.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Background rock, jazz, and reggae.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    None, but patrons are welcome to bring in sandwiches and pizza slices from other establishments. The bar serves beer only, but has an extensive selection.

  • Prices

    Beer €3.50–€5.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Casual.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Weekends draw the biggest crowds, though the action is generally steady throughout the week.

The temple of Roman Craft Beer
Giorgia C. Mar 30, 2013
Born as a football bar more than 10 years ago, it has slowly became the symbol of imported and local craft beer: Ma che siete venuti a fa, in fact, just offers beer produced by micro-brewery with traditional and natural ingredients from all over the world. With "only" 15 taps they are able to offer amazing beers for all tastes and styles The two owners, Manuele and Fabio are always happy to share comments and tips on football and good beers, creating a friendly and cozy atmosphere accented by the wooden furniture and the adequate musical background. Located in one of the most characteristic Rome's neighborhood - Trastevere - this bar perfectly reflect the crowdy and vibrant air of the Eternal City. TIP: ask the bartenders, they'll be able to satisfy every beer-drinker need!
Loved this spot

This place had a great vibe in a very active location. Loved the beer selection and sampled many. Favorite was the Extraomnes Tripel on tap.
