My boyfriend found this on trip advisor, it was recommended so we gave it a go. It was tucked down a side street just off a main street. It was quite quiet when we went in, but later on a few local people came in to eat, which is usually a good sign. The décor was quite basic but clean, and welcoming.
The staff were friendly and the service was quick, we ordered a pizza each, 2 drinks a bowl of chips and a dessert each. The pizzas were lovely and thin and crispy absolutely delicious.
It was also very reasonably priced. It was the best pizza I had in Rome, in fact the best I've had in Italy, and that's some claim!
We went back on the Monday but were disappointed to find it closed!

Authentic Local Place which was recommended to us by our host at the hotel. We ate here 3 nights of 7 that we were in Rome. Other places were good but did not measure up to this place in my opinion. Pizza was fantastic. Pasta Salmon was cooked to perfection. Its a party in your mouth for your tastebuds and great for you wallet too. 1/2 liter of wine was only 4 Euros and it was delish. It's a must do when in Rome. Visited September 20, 2013

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.
