Not good

Cheap but not tasty. Better pay a bit more and enjoy good Italian food. Really disappointing. Terrible service. Crowded.

Simple place, simple furniture, crowdy but excellent food, very fast staff and don't have to wait for food very long! And price! 50% less than in the center of Rome. Really delicious, we ate also Bolognese and chicken, everything was really good.

Carlo menta was proposed by other turists who stayed in our hotel in trastevere..so we decided to try it because of the good prices..we were 10 persons. well..the prices are good, but it isn't something special the food in taste.. Avoid the tourist menu... it seems to be really cheap and has many plates to choose but it's nothing special... More

We had a lovely four course evening meal for 13 euros, 10 euros at lunch time, in the trastevere area of Rome. Good choices available, you pay extra for drinks, but still good value and friendly staff, well worth the walk over the river, or by tram.

This restaurant was full when we decided to visit on a Monday evening. I think this was just because of the price. The prices are really cheap - a litre of house wine is €8! Pastas really cheap but the quality isn't great unfortunately. After speaking to an Italian waiter in another restaurant, he warned us never to order lasagne... More

If you are looking for somewhere to eat that is cheap this is the place. Very busy so the staff don't give you the time of day if you are looking to try and speak a little Italian. The food was ok but overall not the best restaurant we have been to! We only ended up here as the place... More

The prices are low, that is the only good thing about this restaurant. They are low, but portions are also quite small. Food is quite poor, pasta was served lukewarm. It is cheap food but it is NOT good value for money, pay 2/3 euros more and enjoy a much better meal elsewhere. Appalling service. sat down at a table... More

Very average food and service but low cost and decent portions so if you are back packing and on a budget this may be for you.
