We stayed at La Carbonara for lunch. The place is cute, the walls are full of signatures and autographs made by customers. The staff is great, always smiling. I took Paccheri alla Ciociara with porchetta and mushrooms. It was tasty, but the chef exaggerated with salt. My girlfriend got a carbonara and the pancetta was crispy, almost like breakfast bacon.... More

I went to this restaurant two years ago, and I definitely remember it being better. The staff is super friendly. They saw I was indecisive about what to order, and they offered me the two different pastas (carbonara and amatriciana) as half portions. Both were good, just not great. The pancetta on the carbonara was almost like American bacon and... More

Delicious food, friendly staff. Get an upstairs room or if its warm sit outside to see all the goings on at fiora di campo! We reserved our table for dinner when at the market that day, which was lucky because it was very busy when we arrived. A lovely man came and played guitar. This is where the locals come... More

After checking tripadvisor for restaurants close to our accomodation we found La Carbonara. We did as suggested and got there at opening time 7pm, 30 minutes later the place was packed. The quality of food and service are very high, they also served a very nice wine together with our meal. Not to forget: the music they played was absolutely... More

La Carbonara is one of those excellent places where locals go out to eat (not that you won't rub elbows with many other fellow tourists...) The atmosphere is typical Italian: loud, hot, aromatic, passionate, while the food is quite outstanding. Tried the homemade ravioli with a fresh tomatoes sauce and was plunged into a richness of flavors unexpected from such... More

I can see why people leave bad reviews. The service is extremely slow. We came right when they were opened and was able to snag a seat, being advised that we would have to finish eating by 8:30PM. We were seated at 7:30, and it took a while for us to get a waiter to take our order. There isn't... More

As the name of the restaurant goes... you imagine the alla la carbonara dish would be a favourite... and it absolutely was! My partner and I absolutely loved it, was the best carbonara I've ever had. Staff were friendly and explained the menu thoroughly as it is traditionally in Italian only. Also... recommend the il Grigio red wine from chianti... More

We had such a great dinner here. The whole baked artichoke was to die for. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Neighborhood Profile
Monti
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 Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
