We have been staying in the Monti area of Rome for the last week, this is the worst meal we encountered. I would urge you not to waste your money. Our party of 6 ordered a plain mixed antipasto to share which was ok. We then ordered 5 plain dishes of pasta ranging from Carbonara to a simple Amatriciana. We had powdered Parmesan, the carbonara was bright yellow no egg cream and the raw lardons were floating in an oily soup. We started the whole process by trying to order a basic Chianti to go with all , after 3 choices as none of the wines were in stock we gave up and asked the waiter what he had. This was preceded by lots of running in and out of the restaurant as he seemed to be getting bottles of wine from the house next door which we were bemused by. We complained about the food - the waiter ignored us presented us with a 95euro bill and really wasn't bothered. We were just silly tourists there to be ripped off never to be seen again. Save your money - we are guessing that its in financial trouble... Go with the good reviews of the many restaurants in the area.
