Rome Restaurants

Monte Caruso

Updated 03/25/2014

Fodor's 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.

Sophisticated basement restaurant

A little expensive compared with others but with some pretensions to style; as soon as seated a glass of sparkling wine appears, olives and several types of bread. Smartly dressed and well trained waiters/waittresses. An interesting menu, food expertly cooked and presented, extensive wine list. Tables uncrowded - you could easily enjoy a leisurely 5 course meal here if you had the capacity!
