Finally it was time to go find Daniel and Henry Camerucci at Trattoria Monti. It just been my birthday ... how old do you ask? But I do not ever tell my dear readers!

Nico and we decided to go to Trattoria Monti, which I had only heard tell the wonder...



The restaurant is located behind to Piazza Vittorio, in the neighborhood in Rome is in fact called "Mountains" and you will find it easy to light from the sign. The environment is small and collected, does not want to deny his title too, that restaurant, but with great class: wooden furniture, table linen and kind to a light yellow, plates and glasses definitely treated, and a great great customer care.



Since1970, management is completely family... Mom Francesca  in the kitchen, a real foundation on the Mountain Inn, sommelier and his sons, Daniel and Henry, who manage the hall. Whether there is no sommelier gaps doubt, just look at the wine list, much more consistent in the menu and where sparkling wines of their lands, such as Rosso Conero.

The array of food and wine of the family Camerucciis, admittedly, without a shadow of doubt, Marche, and you will see how willingly speak of their origins (near Jesi) and products, sought after, which they bring from their homeland. Le Marche are among the regions rich and varied in Italy, I remember years ago, a fact that their slogan was "All of Italy in a region "on mean that there really was everything: the sea (especially near the beautiful and Numana Sirolo), hills and mountains (for those who never got the Conero worth a visit). And the variety of landscape has led to a rich and varied cuisine to that wise fish approach course to a very strong background to dishes and ground meat. All this you are to Trattoria Monti in Rome: all the flavors to a region in one delicious meal.



We started from the starters, where you can find cakes with vegetables and cheese for all tastes, together Marches to the fried (which includes very many things including the famous fried cream) and we chose a potato cake with mousse cabbage leaf of radicchio and provolone. Dish really well presented (note that the pie looks like a miniature serve to cabbage) and an unbeatable color match.



And the First! Here on the matter is complicated ... the choice is quite extensive and detailed, but Nico and I were also gone to re-try the famous chocolate egg  with Tortello (from we misnamed ravioli) to determine how well our discos from legendary original.

Well, this second sample provided us with details here, lost in the memory of Nicholas, which will allow us to bring about thelatest changes to the recipe youwe have proposed in "remade for you! " (click here to see the recipe)... matters to detail, balance in the filling with vegetables and geometry of the ravioli... but the substance is already there. In any case, we learned that the way sevire more natural for the ravioli, and the mostrecommended by the family Camerucci is butter sage and Parmesan: lightly dressed in whitebecause the ravioli can enjoy all the dynamic nuances of flavor. Nevertheless, for those who love him, there is always the version pamigiano or fresh tomato and butter withtruffle... de gustibus.



In addition to what you will find in the menu there are dishes of the day that Daniel and Henry VI

To further recount crisis on what to order. We have made ​​groped by another ravioli with a filling inside to grouper fish topped with tomato and herbs, good and well-seasoned, but my heart is still in the dark tortello with the yolk.



This time we have exaggerated with food (usually we are good to order and can not never tired after a meal... but questions in order) and we took a second based Flesh: A roll to beef stuffed to vegetables, pine nuts and raisins dipped in a fantastic sauce.



Really good. But there was also the roast suckling pig and other delicacies last but not least: the controversy here was hard... I chose a dessert made to caramelized pears alas, that was over, so I will not go back until at least the curiosity, then we examined one of them must, an apple pie served with a zabaglione cream, that might seem trivial, but they all spoke with great emphasis, and new words a pudding to sheep's milk ricotta with the typical sauce of cooked  of brands to choose finally a Amaretto parfait with chocolate cream. Good but not extraordinary.



Trattoria Monti very attractive place, where everybite is really an experience culinary level and where you will feel pampered, alittle at home...
