Trattoria ai Monti
Located near St. Mary Major Basilica I can’t recommend this place enough, to sum up in one word its simply FANTASTIC! It’s very well managed with a courteous and impeccable service. Mom runs the kitchen while her 2 kids, Enrico and Daniele, run the show delighting guests with their knowledge & friendly attitude. The food here is Roman with a creative twist. Just outside the restaurant don’t miss the gorgeous Roman Arch left behind by history.
Best Bet: Chicken Potacchio Style
