We were starving and walked into the restaurant. After being seated we got someone even to acknowledge us after about 20 minutes. The menus were given. Then again. No one.. another ten minutes later the order was taken. We asked for artichokes and were told...More

Admittedly it was a busy Saturday night, and the food smelled delicious, too bad we didn't get any, despite having a reservation. We were seated about 15 minutes after our reserved time, not a problem, but zero service, not even the offer of a drink...More

It´s so turistic. I don´t eat too much and everything was too small even for me. The service is ok and the prices aren´t worth to the food. You may have better options for eating in Rome.

A tasteless mushroom salad followed by their signature Carbonara. What a joke.... nothing special worth the wait list, the attitude and the incorrect bill that was not rectified. Oh and the best... ? Call for a reservation in English and it’s 10pm. Have an Italian...More

A very solid restaurant. I am a very big fan of the traditional carbonara dish and I read online this was one of the best ones in the city. We ordered the fried artichoke, spaghetti pomodorini e pastacchi, carbonara and steak with rosemary and thyme....More

Went to La Carbonara with my husband and two friends on our trip to Rome and it was honestly one of the highlights on our trip. We didn’t have a reservation but they managed to squeeze us in which we were so grateful for. While...More

Dont’t let the cheesy name fool you as La Carbonara provided the best meal I had on my visit to Rome. We hadn’t booked a table so sat at the bar waiting to be seated where the friendly barman Toto helped us decide on a...More

This is the second time I've been here, and it happened to be a few days shy of a year since the last time. I was amazed by the rigatoni a la gricia, and ordered it again. Now, it was lunchtime so perhaps a different...More

Me and my husband had been recommended this restaurant by a friend who had spent some time living in Rome. We were looking forward to it but left very disappointed. We went in at about 8.30 and after finally getting a ladies attention she snapped...More

This restaurant was recommended to us as the best restaurant in the Monti area. A must do. We booked three weeks in advance and waited patiently in line to get in, assuming with all the hype that this would be a fantastic experience. The service...More

Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighborhood just
west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as
it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet
for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season,
quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its
cobblestone streets. The neighborhood supports unique
and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime
residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at

We went for lunch without booking. Were told 1hr waiting which we did to get away from the heat. Had some wine at the bar and chatted away with on the the brothers. I think we ended up waiting 20/30min. I am glad we did!
