La Carbonara

Trattoria in Monti, Esquilino & San Lorenzo

On the go since 1906, this busy restaurant was favoured by the infamous Ragazzi di Panisperna, the group of young physicists whose discoveries led to the construction of the first atomic bomb. The waiters are brusque, the atmosphere crackles with energy, and the interior is covered in graffiti – tradition dictates that diners should leave their mark in a message on the wall.
