La Taverna Da Tonino e Lucia
Rome, IT-RM 184 Italy 06.474.5325
In Monti, few blocks from the Coliseum, some say this has the best carbonara in the city. Be wary of best of anything. But there’s no doubt Lucia knows what she’s doing. This is cooking in famiglia, with all the companion noise. Meat sauce, pesto Genovese and carbonara are both worth the visit (be careful chewing on the bacon). Steak is steak; bloody, gristle-laded, hearty. Same with the scottadito — literally “burned-finger lamb.” Nice puntarelle. Best way to describe a place such as this is “raw” — so don’t go pulling out the Platinum card.
