Hidden Gem; Best Pasta in Rome!

Their menu has an option for choosing freshly made pasta right then and there. The pasta and all the sauce options are amazing! You can order half sizes and share multiple pasta choices. This restaurant is hands down one of the best ones in Rome!

We dined at La Carbonara last night. The area of Monti is fabulous with many bars and good restaurants and this is meant to be one of the best. However, unfortunately we found the service erratic, teetering between very friendly and neglectful / forgetful. Our shared entree was cold (they did reheat it), my main (bistecca) was ok however the... More

The carbonara was quite ordinary and nothing special so honestly, I don't quite understand the hype. Whilst the service was friendly, it was rather slow.

Great place with great stuff and great food. Even locals recommended this place, so make a reservation before as it's near impossible to get the table for dinner. It is worth!

This is a busy place and our daughter tells us she has rarely got a table without booking. And we did see people being turned away on the night. The menu is largely carnivorous so if you want vegetables that will be a side order. But they are worth it. Each of us had a veal dish which was pleasant... More

Follow a search on line for good restaurants in Rome we came across this place. When we eventually found it (depending on the way you come in from the street is a bit difficult to find) it was packed with people waiting. We had to wait 30 minutes for our table and as we had no reservation we thought this... More

We read about this restaurant online and thought it sounded good. When we arrived at 7 pm there were about 6 people waiting. We hadn't made a reservation but we're told we could have a table until 8, which we though was fine. The tables were very close together which was awkward. We tried to order wine and the waiter...

By far, the best carbonara I've ever tasted in my whole life. The place is packed during the weekend and service can take its time. Nevertheless I absolutely recommend this place if you want to know how a real carbonara should taste.
