Good pizza (5€) friendly staff and fast service. We were glad with our food but people near to us complained about their food. According to them food wasn't fresh and was awful.

Unfortunately for me Ai Bozzi had a had a one hour wait and see had to go to Carlo Menta. The food was terrible. The pasta came out really quickly which one can only assume came from a giant vat of pre made pasta. All three pasta dishes were over cooked and the carbonara looked like it was cooked with... More

Here you will get a fantastic meal for a great price. The restaurant is in the Trastevere section of Rome which is a "hot spot" for night life and young people. There are also many great restaurants in this area as well. Carlo Menta is one of these restaurants. From the appetizers all the way to the desserts everything we... More

During our stay in Rome we tried to avoid the tourist restaurants. We spent the morning walking the interesting streets of Trastevere, were tired and hungry. This place offered a 3course lunch menu at Euro10. This made me slightly suspicious, but we picked it anyway. What a pleasant surprise. The food was excellent, the piazza atmosphere was great and we... More

We ate here on our first night in Rome having walked over into Travastere as recommended by the concierge. The place was heaving, with queues for tables the whole time we were there. It's true that tables are packed together and that food is cheap and cheerful but overall the experience was great. Being packed in certainly get table chat... More

3 courses of fab food, Prosecco for 12 euros a BOTTLE, coffee and liqueurs and a great lively atmosphere, ably assisted by the nearby music stall blasting out traditional Italian tunes...the best 64 euros we've ever spent!!

This restaurant fully deserves five stars for the sheer value that it offers in what is otherwise a rather pricey Rome. We arrived in Trastevere with the intention of going to the restaurant next door Ai Bocci, but when we saw how packed Carlo Menta was we couldn't help but feel obliged to check out what the hype was about....

After walking Rome all day, we were tired and were told to go to the Jewish ghetto to eat. Going too far, we ended up in Travestere, and just ended up picking this place to eat. The food was good, but not wow. We started off with a meat and cheese platter. I had spaghetti frutti di mar. The pasta... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant while looking for a place to eat lunch in Trastevere. We ordered the lunch special which was a steal! They gave us so much food that we ended up just eating a salad for dinner. Since the place was so busy, the service is a little slow but the staff is friendly. Great place to... More
