This place was recommended by a local Italian guy we met on the plane. If the locals love this place, we just had to try it and we were not disappointed

We were there early at 6 pm but the staff was courteous enough to suggest us to sit and wait till they were opened for business at 630. We had the pizza and the pasta. No words can describe how satisfying it was and the price was reasonable for such delicious ensemble.

How did we get there ? We walked from St Peters basilica towards Corso vittorio Emanulle 22. Shouldn't miss it. Their website is http://www.lamontecarlo.it/en/where-we-are.html

Stuck in traffic - leave it to a cab driver to tell you where to eat. Excellent pasta - perfectly al dente. Pizza to die for - thin Roman crust - the simpler the better. Fabulous salads.
Forget all the fancy upscale restaurants and cooking shows - stay local and keep it simple. Dine outdoors where the Romans hang out at night and you cannot be disappointed. Or stay inside on a summer night and keep cool and eat to your heart's content.

Me and my boyfriend visited this pizzeria twice for lunch on our visit to rome.

For such a central location, the price of the wine was decent and very tasty. The pasta dishes here are brilliant - large portions for a good price but dont expect any frills here - its a very basic pizzeria - true roman style!

I've been coming here for years and love the place - good value and good food!

I go to Rome several times a year and when in Rome … I always eat pizza here – every night. This is a good place to go for an authentic Rome-style pizza: very tasty! Also, service is very quick and good; waiters love their job. I used to go to Bafetto 2 all the time but I don’t anymore. Things have changed at Bafetto 2 … service has worsened and waiters definitely do not love their job. Also, the Montecarlo pizza - although very similar – is just better :-)
