MAKE A RESERVATION! First piece of advice. Its a popular restaurant and reservations get booked fast. I am writing this review on behalf of my husband who absolutely loved it. We had the buffala mozzerella to start. My husband had the All'Amatriciana (homemade pasta with bacon and tomato sauce)-it was delicious. Then he had a beef dish (I don't know... More

We found this little gem after some online searching. You can't go to a restaurant in Rome without tourists (and after all we were tourists as well!) but this restaurant is the real deal. Authentic, local Roman cuisine. The waiter was wonderful. When ordering pasta he told us that two of the dishes we ordered were very similar so we... More

We found this restaurant in Romeing, a tourist guide. It gave a detailed description and recommended making a reservation, which we did. We arrived at 7:00 PM, opening time, and there was already a line-up. The restaurant opened several minutes later and the waiting crowd had doubled. Nobody was turned away but we noticed that those without reservations were shown... More

Delicious mozzarella, very tender and tasty meat. Pasta al dente. I recommend it, one of the best meals I ever had. I recommended it to friends who keep visiting La Carbonara over and over as well. But make reservations, you may not get a table otherwise.

You may have to queue for a table but it will be worth the wait! There are plenty of places to eat a carbonara in Rome but this is on of the stand out ones - great atmosphere, friendly staff and VERY inexpensive!

We went as a family to visit Rome last June and by chance went in for lunch in this restaurant. I never thought that a simple tomato and roquette salad could taste divino, their pasta truly unforgettable and their wine giddy good. Will definitely go back there when we find ourselves back in beautiful Roma.

Just returned from a weekend in Rome and we were fortunate in finding this gem. Tried to get in on the first night but was fully booked and this was at 20.00, booked for the next night and got in about 21.30. This place is frequented mainly by Italians which as one of the other reviewers said is a good... More

This restaurant is just fun, and it is usually packed. While tourists find it, it is frequented primarily by Italians, always a good sign. There is no English menu, but the servers speak English and are very helpful. Service is excellent. All of the food we ordered was good, including a mixed salad, a pasta dish, and veal entrees. We...

This is a relaxed, classic Roma trattoria - The food was excellent, the atmosphere was excellent, the restaurant was quirky and the staff very pleasant and helpful - and it was great value for money. At €30 a head all in with plenty of wine.....we'll definitely put it to the top of our list for next trip

There are 2 extremely different la Carbonara restaurants. Make sure you verify which one before going! (this one is on side of hill w/ narrow road across from a cafe). FILLS UP FAST so make reservations. Pros- Food was amazing, affordable, and authentic! DO NOT SKIP DESSERT! (the ricotta cheese cake with the sprinkles... gasp... everyone was watching us eat...
