Elegant, yet casual, this spectacular restaurant near the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore is run by the Camerucci family who serve up dishes from their home region of Le Marche, on the east coast of the Italian peninsula. The Trattoria Monti's narrow dining room is only big enough for a handful of tables, so make a reservation, especially for dinner since this quaint little restaurant is one of the best places to eat in Rome. First-timers should get the Parmesan cheese tortino, a luscious soufflé or the coffee-coaster-size ravioli stuffed with cheese and a semi-cooked egg. There’s also heartier fare like hen cooked in lard or cod laced with saffron.
