Tasty cheap eats

I've eaten here several times over three different trips to Rome, spanning nine years. What you get is tasty simple food at a bargain price (5 Euros pasta, 3 Euros pizza, 8 Euros a litre of house red/white), in a lively location in Trastevere. Service can be hit and miss but to be honest the varied... read more

When we have seen this place, we felt in shock....we could not figure it how cheap it is. First we thought to pass it by, but when we noted the long long line, we decided to give it a try. It is worthy. The spaghetti meals were ready for 5 minutes. For 8 euros we had 1 liter of white... More

On 4 out of the 6 days I got lunch here. It is the best lunch menu in Rome. A very good quality-quantity-price relationships on all their dishes. I highly recommend the pasta with seafood as I absolutely loved it (I am a huge seafood lover and I am quite pretentious about the way it is cooked)

We decided to check out the travestere area in rome as it is known to be where the locals go and we were not dissapointed. The whole area is atmospheric and fun; even on a Sunday night. We went to carlo menta and had an amazing meal. We were sat down very quickly (luckily) at around 8.30pm (the queue got... More

We were not hungry, but wanted to get out of the record-breaking heat, saw the low prices on the menu, and decided to go sit in the air-conditioned pizzeria. The menu listed pizza for 3 Euros, and we each expected a slice of pizza. We were shocked to each get our own full-size pizza for 3 Euros each! Then we... More

I have no complaints. I would go back. We had salad, pasta, and veal saltinbocca. This was accompanied by a bottle of mineral water and a bottle of Frascati wine. This place is in the Trastevere section of Rome, an area that is loud and full of young people. If you do not like crowds do not go.

I went to this restaurant with my fiancé not expecting it to be so amazing that I had to go back 3 times during my stay in rome. You should definitely sit inside since it's cooler, the service outside isn't the best the waiters are not too friendly. But when it comes to ordering, you will love everything they have... More

The food is very cheap and everything tastes like home made. The service is very quick and the quality of the food is good. Something to note is that this restaurant is not a gourmet place, so I am rating it as excellent within its category. However, some of the dishes I tried here were much better than what I... More

This is the cheapest place you will ever find in Rome and it is located at Trastevere. It is cheaper than the stalls selling pizza per kilo and with higher quality, you get to seat in a table either inside or outside. If you are on a budget or you are just tired of panini this is the place to... More

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.
