The restaurant looks nice, and the staff were fairly attentive and pleasant, with the exception of the manager who seemed to prefer attending to the local guests. If you are to go here you'd need a big wallet or a small appetite as portions are horrendously tiny, although a plentiful supply of bread was provided, dessert was nice however I... More

I'm used to go to Monte Caruso irregularly but not less than once a year approximately. In general its offer and the milieu have been satisfying to me and to my friends. But the last time I had a strong, bothering impression of déjà-vu. Always the same menu, in winter and in summer, always the same obsessing presence of meat,... More

the pasta is splendid and the desserts as well! It is the best choice to eat near termini. The only inconvenience is that the place is too hot in the summer.

Not the cheapest but proving you do get what you pay for. The staff could not have been more helpful and there most definately is a hsowman amongst thaem that loves... More

This is a typical family run little eatery in Rome. The food, the service and atmosphere are all first class. Everything is fresh and it tastes amazing. Eating Italian food anywhere else in the world will be measured against this bench and they have set the BAR high! Many thanks to all the staff at Monte Caruso

We found this restaurant while staying near Termini Station. It is not a pizzeria and is also not priced like one. We had a very nice dining experience with very good food and great service. Kind of hard to find as it is a downstairs doorway but worth a try for a nice dinner. We would return.
