Great food, good price

This is a place where we've eaten multiple times while in Rome, because of the quality of the food and the great price, half of the price in the city center. The restaurant is also in a great place, everything around is so Italian and picturesque, you can have a nice walk after lunch or dinner... read more

Carlo Menta has a great location in Trastevere. The food was inexpensive and we thought most of the dishes tasted very good. The service at the restaurant was average when comparing it to other restaurants we visited in Rome. We enjoyed sitting on their covered patio surrounded by several locals.

Great location in Trastevere, but very busy most nights (overstuffed restaurant) and unfortunately also very forgettable food. It's like finding the Olive Garden in Rome, and if I had, I would never have gone in. Pity the servers who have to make their way in between tightly placed tables and up and down narrow stairs. No wonder they hardly had... More

Of course, the food was inexpensive, but the meals were OK at the very best. If you are looking for some quality Italian food, do not go there. The service was average and we felt rushed by the staff.

I have to say that this was one of the best meals that I ever had and I have been to some great places. I don't know what possessed me to try the gnocchi because I haven't liked it up until now. It was advertised as the dish that they were known for and that is an understatement. The gnocchi... More

During my first trip to Rome, a friend and I asked our tour guide to take us to a place that locals go to. She hopped on a bus with us and lead us down this alley to Carlo Menta. This was some of the best food I have ever had!! When I came back to Rome with someone else,... More

Located in lovely Trastevere, the restaurant offers a very quick service, nice and polite staff and good food at affordable prices. It might not be the best culinary experience in Rome, but it's definitely a lovely and tasty one.

I went with my husband and twelve year old daughter. The restaurant was clean and neat, had a nice decoration and friendly service. It was surprising to see the prices of the food (5 euros a Primi & 6-7 a Secondi) since we were paying much more on the restaurants located in the center of Rome. The food was good,... More

Very tasty & cheap dinner in a lovely square. Service a little brusque but quick. All in all would highly recommend this place.

Staying in Trastevere

Neighborhood Profile
Trastevere
Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded postcard, a little worn around the edges but still charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of entertainment - a rotating set of street performers entertains almost every night, and unforgettable eateries and bars pepper its piazzas and side streets. For a trip to the past, visit the southern and western flanks of Trastevere for pockets of yesteryear, less traversed areas with a residual 1960s and 70s Roman vibe.
