Absolutely amazing pasta with good prices and fabulous service to match! We had dinner here three times - carbonara, eggplant parmesan (not fried) lasagna, pasta bolognese. were all fantastic. No room for the salad which looks good but the tiramisu was terrific. Last but not...least the service was exceptional, so friendly and kind, felt like eating with family. Located in the Monti neighborhood and easy to find.More

The best pasta we ever had! Close to the Coloseum, the prices are good, they have Little bottles of wine that are priced like glasses in most places, so it ends up being the most cost efficient. The staff are friendly and super polite. They...will make you feel so confortable. Please do try this place.More

This is the review that I hate to write because this amazing little place will be “discovered” but I had to give a shout out to this so amazingly delicious food! You wont notice it walking by, but it is the best pasta you will...find in Rome - not lying - and look at the prices! I literally saw people licking their bowls - again not lying! You order at the counter and then sit, they have beer and wine and the maître d’ takes great care of you. Since I am only here for two more days (and intend on eating the rest of my meals here) please don’t discover it until then so I can get a seat!More

One of the best pasta experiences we ever had. Not your traditional restaurant but don’t let that deter you. There is no waiter service so you order, pay and pick up your food when your number is called. There are several tables as well as...stools at counters to sit at. After talking to the owner, we ordered Fettuccine Alfredo, Tonnarelli alla Carbonara, caprese salad, a Prosecco and a Heineken for a total of 37 euros… reasonable prices, delicious and fresh food and great customer service. We also ordered a chocolate cake after we finished which was amazing: warm, moist and bursting with flavor, 7 euros. When you enter, the owner greets you and takes his time to discuss the menu. He also walks around and checks on you and your satisfaction. While we were there a gentleman came up to the owner and said this is the best meal he has had in Rome. I have to agree! Highly recommend!More

The food and the staff were amazing, and there was no shortage of vegetarian options. We went multiple times, trying something new each time, and loved it every single time! It is quite popular and can get busy so arrive early or don’t mind waiting...to get a seat.More

By far, this was the best pasta in Rome. Very quirky and enjoyable experience. Worth the line up to get in. We visited twice and both time’s amazing food.

Genuinely the best food I had in Italy. My 9 euro carbonara was better than any expensive dish from a high end restaurant that I tasted while in Rome. And to top it off, the service was top tier. Friendly environment where the owner comes...to mingle and check on your experience. 5 stars isn't enough.More

After visiting the colosseum, which is very nearby, we decided to eat at al42. After a short wait, we were invited in and the menu was explained to us by the nice owner, who gives the restaurant an incredible flair with his charm and openness....We decided us for Bolognese and the strong Carbonara. We were really on cloud nine, this really was the best pasta we have ever eaten! The tiramisu was incredibly fluffy and the cream was delicious. Thank you for this amazing experience!More

This was an absolute joy. An authentic Italian, serving outstanding food at a fair price, with a passionate and friendly owner/server. No table service- instead very much a cafe style which actually made for a lovely, unique experience. The steady queue to get in tells...you just what a special little place this is. Bravo!More

There is a wide variety of drinks on site but I can not guarantee for their brand or type or quality. When we visit the place, I think we drank water / bottled.
