Friendly people and lovely food. We enjoyed our meal so much that we went back a second time during our weeks holiday in Rome. We weren't disappointed. The food, atmosphere and hospitality were excellent on both visits.

This real jewel is located in a very secluded place! We were impressed by the tasteful internal decoration and even more by the quality and presentation of the food. We highly recommend this venue!

I went there with my family and we were met at the door and made very welcome. We rang ahead and made a reservation but that was not necessary, the restaurant filled up more later in the evening. My Husband and most of the others had steak, cooked to perfection. The wine was excellent and we were spoiled with some... More

My partner and I came here on the basis of a friend's recommendation and the strength of the trip advisor reviews. Unfortunately there seems to have been a change of ownership and they now appear to cater almost exclusively to groupon customers. We were asked three times if we had a coupon and were met with genuine confusion when we... More

We were staying with friends near the Stazione Trastevere and wanted to go out for a really nice meal. After a bit of time on Tripadvisor, we found that the MenteLocale was literally just around the corner. It would have been worth a commute! The service was excellent and the food better! We had a language issue but muddled our... More

Great food, great wine, friendly staff, reasonably priced. The restaurant is easily reached using the no 8 tram. Well worth a visit from the centre of town as the value is much better. I would certainly recommend.

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...
