Is it me?
Is it I?
(A caso) Soy yo?

 

Usage Note  in CALD2:

 

“Me or I?

Me is used after ‘than’, ‘as, or ‘to be’. It would be wrong or would sound very formal if you used I.
She’s taller than me.
David is not as tall as me.
“Who’s there?” “It’s me.”
“Who’s there? “Ït is I.” (formal)

 

Sometimes me is used with another noun as the subject of a sentence, especially in informal English.
Jane and me went to the cinema yesterday. (informal)
Jane and I went to the cinema yesterday.”
