We discovered this place May 2015. They serve very delicious pizza and pasta for really good prices. The area is very nice and gives the real feeling of dining in Italy. Family friendly place even with such tight space between tables. This is simply our first place to eat each time we visit Rome.

For the price they ask, they provide just excellent food, but do not expect too much when you pay 3 EUR for your plate:)

Great pasta (COTTA AL DENTE!), delicious chicory and artichokes. The price are lower than other similar restaurant in this disctrict, but nothing... More

My wife and I have frequented this restaurant twice on this trip to Rome and once last year. The food has been consistently good and the service has been excellent. The prices are unbelievable. Most entree items are 3 Euro. After walking around Trastevere, it is nice to visit Carlo Menta's.

My husband had lasagna which was delicious (and he is very pick about lasagna). I had pasta carbonara- must order! I had wine; my husband had beer.... More

For two nights in a row we saw crowds of people waiting in line to eat here, while neighboring eateries were much slower to fill up (if they filled at all). So we had to try it, see what all the fanfare was about. But we are left scratching our heads. My husband's lasagna couldn't have been more bland. It... More

Staying in Trastevere

Neighborhood Profile
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.
