Popular pizzeria for foreigners and locals alike. Swift, courteous service. There are open-air tables. The pizzas, canapes, fried foods and bruschette (toast with various toppings) are all excellent. There are also some first and second course dishes on the menu. The desserts are home-made.
My husband and I both had the linguini with pesto sauce. I was very good and quite a generous portion. I also had a 1/2 litre of wine which was nice. The waiters were very nice. Not obnoxious at all. I definitely will go back when in Rome. I think the whole meal was around 30 euros.
This is one of the best pizzerias in the center of Rome and filled with locals! We travel to Italy frequently and always put La Montecarlo on our list! The service is brisk and authentic and has the perfect Roman energy. The pizzas are perfect, fresh and delicious! All of the antipasti are delicious and fresh and the owner Carlo is always around waiting to greet you. Roberto (waiter) is delightful and charming. A must when near Piazza Navona!
My Roman friends took me here my last night in Rome. I was with a large group, so had the spaghetti all'amatriciana as well at some pizza and it was fabulous. Very authentic. Great atmosphere, a mix of students, tourist and local Romans.
A group of us had dinner at La Montecarlo last night (Friday). One one hand I was disappointed based on some of the reviews, on the other hand I wasn't surprised given that many restaurants that receive voluminous reviews tend to disappoint. If one is simply going for a quick pizza one will probably find the place adequate to good. If, however, one is planning on a leisurely dinner this is not the place for you. The clientele is predominantly young (typically 20ish), and it felt like a college type pizza hangout. On Friday evening it was packed with people waiting in line outside.
The service is brisk to the point of being almost rude, their is a strong sense that they are explicitly rushing the diners along. They will not let one order antipasti while deciding on what else to eat (everything has to be ordered at once). The pizza arrived before we had finished our antipasti (which was in fact tasty; bruschetta with sliced tomato on it, along with white beans and mushrooms on the side), and then was whisked away before we were finished. On leaving they cleared the table around us, threw on the new pieces of paper that function as a table cloth and seated the new diners all while we were in the process of putting on our coats.
The pizza is very good but no better than one can get in many other pizzerias in Rome. The previous day I had a pizza in a nondescript business restaurant in EUR which was every bit as good.
Overall a run-of-the-mill experience; good pizza, bruschetta and salad, overly rushed service.
This was the best pizza we had in Rome and sets the standard for thin crisp Roman style pizza. La Montecarlo is better than Baffeto (although they are no slouches), and the pasta dishes are terrific.
The service is mediocre at best but you should not expect more as the place can get packed at night. Lunchtime it is not as crowded and the service better.
You can tell this place sets the standard by the number of locals. It is one of the least expensive places to eat and it will be my first meal when I return.
This is truly authentic Roman fare. Amazing pizzas cooked to perfection and excellent traditional antipasti (suplee, stuffed zucchini blossoms, stuffed olives, bruschette). Service is friendly and fast and lots of locals. Our waiter was Roberto who was handsome and friendly. Carlo (the owner) is a Rome fixture and knows how to treat his customers. A must when visiting Roma....
I ate at La Montecarlo mid June, and didn't particularly enjoy it. The service was sloppy, a large piece of paper and a couple pieces of silverware were essentially thrown onto the table and as the waiter walked by. The pizza was somewhat underdone, I hate finding pink areas in my sausage. The edge of the pizza was burnt, not just lightly browned. It did nonetheless taste good though, I must admit, and was fairly inexpensive. And not their fault, but the building across the street is under construction and it makes outside dining cramped and uncomfortable. I'd wait until September before I'd try them again.
I love La Montecarlo. You will never feel like a stranger as Carlo (Il Capo), the owner greets you as if you were his long lost buddy. The service is great with friendly Italian handsome waiters whos desire is to please and delight you with one of the best pizzas in town. Order the Capricosa... If I could only take their formula for a pizzeria back to NY, I would be a rich women! PS- Make sure you say hi to Carlo!!!
