“Things have changed - and not for the better”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2012 via mobile

I haven't been here for a while, and unfortunatly things have changed. first of all the waiters have become more sexist and rude, every time they would past, they wwould make some comment to one of us (3 girls).

Two of us ordered the.montecarlo pizza, whih came out and the sausage was still raw. I asked for them to put it back in the oven, which they did but then over cooked the whole thing. I was not nice. my friend who ordered the napoli was happy with hers though.

In the end, I just wouldnt get so excited about montecarlo now.

“The best pizza in Rome!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2012

Very local, not touristic restaurant. If you want to feel real spirit of Italian restaurant, this is place for you!
Waiter doesn't speak English and restaurant works only certain hours.
Very simple, but cozy restaurant.

Great little italian restaurant with a big line out front. Friendly waiters. Long tables so you<ll be sitting with people you don`t know. Good food.

“Best Risotto Ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

I had the pleasure of eating in this restaurant on Saturday the 01-12 this year with ten friends. We arrived at 9pm and were seated in 10 minutes. We all ate different meals and were all very pleased with both the service and quality of our meals. From my point of view I ordered the risotto which was out of this world and would return again and again just to taste this Roman speciality. The only downside was the house white wine which was poor.

“Loved it so much, we went back for our last dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012

While La Montecarlo doesn't look like much, it is a wonderful and inexpensive place to eat in Rome! We had the Pizza al Proscuitto and the Gnocci. But were very good. Pizza is simple and thin, but very tasty. And the gnocci has a nice blend of cheeses. Our server was very friendly and helpful. The wine was good and the cheapest I saw throughout our entire vacation. I would go back in a heartbeat!
