Monte Caruso

Monte Caruso Review

The regional delicacies of certain areas of Italy are grossly underrepresented in Rome. Monte Caruso is truly a standout, as its menu focuses on food from Lucania, an area of Italy divided between the southern regions of Basilicata and Calabria. Homemade pastas have strange-sounding names, such as cautarogni (large cavatelli with Sicilian broccoli) and cauzuni (enormous ricotta-stuffed ravioli), but the dishes are generally simple and hearty.
