Trattoria Monti

13 Via di San Vito
Rome , Italy
39-06-446-6573

Reservations are certainly needed at this brightly lit, 12-table trattoria located one block from the Piazza Vittorio. Brothers Enrico and Daniele Camerucci own and operate the dining room, while their mother controls the kitchen. Franca, or momma, as she is known to the locals, crafts cuisine inspired by the Le Marche region, including starters called tortinos (egg-based custards mixed with different vegetables and parmesan cheese). Though game like rabbit stuffed with truffles is available, the tortellone (one large ravioli stuffed with a runny egg yolk and topped with crispy sage and brown butter) is the house specialty.
