Restaurants in Colosseo/Monti/Nazionale

Charly’s Sauciere  


Beef bourguignonne

The French food at Charly's is admittedly limited. It lacks the buzz of a Paris bistro and the brilliance of provincial cooking. You can, however, find a few standards, such as onion soup, l'assiette gourmet, pâté, beef bourguignonne and so on. And the steaks are handled sensibly, which isn’t always the case in Rome. A civilized refuge located a few steps from the gladiator training grounds. — Judy Edelhoff

La Taverna Da Tonino e Lucia  


Scottadito at Da Tonino.

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. — Cristina Polli

Luzzi  


AC Roma is big at Luzzi.

Tasty, inexpensive pizza, and an engaging atmosphere at this popular San Giovanni spot. If you don’t want pizza, pick lasagna or a bistecca. But remember that this isn’t gourmet fare. Instead, kitchen is workmanlike and cheap (€15-20 a person). People come her to kick back or celebrate after AC Roma soccer wins, which makes it great place to enjoy Rome’s pulse after a day at the Coliseum. An after-work Italian neighborhood joint (blue collar and white) rather than a tour book place. Book ahead for groups. — Cristina Polli

Trattoria Monti  


Rabbits inside...

Something about Rome trattorias with mothers in the kitchen and sons at the ready sends Americans into St. Theresa paroxysms. In this Monti spot you have Enrico and Daniele Camerucci and mom Franca. In 2006, New York Times restaurant critic (and former Rome bureau chief) Frank Bruni gushed, "It's hard to spend more than €50 a person, including wine, for a meal worth more than that." As for Franca, "she can be depended on for terrific pasta dishes." Question: What mother di una certa generazione can’t be? Honestly, TM is worthy of praise for its stalwart Marche cooking, which includes tasty rabbit (timballo di coniglio con patate, pigeon, and hen. The tagliatelle with ragů marchigianotakes a cue from the richness of the game itself, since the sauce is almost as ample in texture as the pasta. With fame comes remodeling and the dreaded, "book ahead." That’s a pity. And beware the place that begins to take itself too seriously. Trattoria Monti — now anointed with the "book ahead" label — must stare down the threat. Oh, and the famous €50 is creeping toward 60. — David R. Deropolous
