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

I have eaten at this restaurant last week with my friend who visited (I live here). You have to be honest: in no restaurant one can order pizza for 3 euros. Pastas and other primi are 8 euros or less, and the food is good. Not oustanding, but what do you expect if a restaurant offers these prices. I have... More

Restaurant has its Italian spirit. It is crowded with people. Service was still surprisingly fast, the food was excellent and the prices were really low. I definitely suggest to visit it even if you have to wait for a free table.

In terms of value for money, this place get 5 stars. This is by far the cheapest restaurant for a pizza. I have been a few times and ordered the chicken and salad once but after that always went for pizza. You can get a simple margarita for 3 EUROS! Such a good price! I have seen tables around me...

We had a reservation for 25. Granted we wanted to be outside but ended up in the basement. We ended up having 17 people in our group (half of them children). We had a variety of food and the bill came to 105 Euros! A Pizza Margaritha was 3 Euros! very inexpensive. The service was good and fast.

Great restaurant! You get good quality food for a really cheap price! I think the Pizza Margherita was 3 EUR! It really is a restaurant for tourists, and really busy ... but it's woth waiting a few minutes to get a table! Staff is friendly and speaks a few languages (English, German) and food is served really quickly. My highlight... More
