Our recent dining experience at MenteLocale was simply delightful!!! The meal from beginning to end was outstanding. This restaurant is a hidden gem, my work brings me to Italy at least twice a year and I have had the opportunity to eat at many different restaurants throughout the country. This is, hands down, one of the best meals I have... More

We found this place by accident really but so happy we did. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, so much so that he left the bottle of lemoncello on the table for us (on the restaurant!) Food was very very good. Even something as simple as mozzarella, the best I've ever had (and I've had a lot!) If staying... More

I note that Mentelocale has only garnered two reviews on TA this year. My guess is that this is very much a locals' restaurant, not a tourist haunt. I suppose locals just don't tend to review their own eating places as enthusiastically as tourists. Let me rectify things. We are staying in Trastevere. Mentelocale is just around the corner. On...

Off the beaten path. Wonderful food, kind staff, lovely atmosphere. Can't go wrong. Menu only in Italian, so bring a pocket dictionary if you don't know much Italian. Definitely worth the effort!

If you want fresh, delicious italian food ( also excellent wine selection) then I strongly recommend this restaurant. Very pretty decor and friendly hosts who will make you feel at home. We have only eaten from the fish menu but the grilled steaks look great and I'll try them next time! The interior of the restaurant is lovely and we've... More

If you want to taste true roman food the type prepared by grandmothers.... This is the place to go. Truly nothing compares to food prepared with love... With good quality ingredients and amazing service and a warm and friendly greating you will feel like a native.

My husband and myself got lost in Trastevere loooking for somewhere nice to have dinner. We found this restaurant and we realised we were not in the usual tourist spot. Not a tourist in sight and all Italian menus. Fantasic! We had what was definitely one of the best meals we've had in years! I had a smoked meat starter... More
