If you're in the mood for seafood, this is a good choice

I was a bit worried when we walked in and I saw a flat screen TV perched on the wall. But it was never turned on so we were happy about that. As soon as we were seated we were all (4 of us) given a glass of Proseco. The owner speaks no English but we had no difficulty communicating... read more

This is a great little restaurant. We walked by on our way to a different restaurant and came back to it. It was a great way to finish our 10 days in Italy. The white sparkling wine and limoncello on the house were a great touch. They even gave us dishes outside the menu to suit our kids desires.

The four of us had a great time trying new dishes and old favorites. Welcomed with a glass of Prosecco, the service was friendly and attentive. We were also treated to some live music and digestivi. Absolutely do not forego dessert; they are all made in house. The lemon tiramisu in particular was amazing. Thanks!

We found this Le Virtu in Tavola by walking as we were staying nearby for our honeymoon. The staff was really friendly, seemed to be family run. The food was really good, a focus on Sardegna instead of Roma, LOTS of seafood options. Try the cheese dessert if you are looking for something really unique.

To this restaurant I go weekly. Lucky me as work very close by. This is a fish restaurant but I who hardly ever eat meat... I am hooked on their scalloppine al vino bianco = escalopes with white wine. Also cicoria ripassata. This is similar to spinate. And sorbetto al limone. I have eaten the same food on different restaurants... More

We had a lovely meal last night in this restaurant. The waiter Mattier (I think that is how you spell his name) was lovely and seemed genuinely interested when we talked to him about our travels in Italy. After our meal a bottle of Limoncello was left on the table with 2 glasses for us just to help ourselves which... More

The owner of our B&B recommended this place. We had a look at the menu and decided to go on. The waitress was really friendly to us although she spoke zero English. She gave us a prose co of the house and Italian and Sardinian bread. We ordered wine and that arrived in a cooler. She even wanted me to... More

We had high hopes as this restaurant seemed busy. But it turned into a nightmare. We were ignored for sometime before even getting to order a drink. The starters were ok but nothing special, but while sitting eating them our main courses arrived and the waitress seemed surprised we didnt want them left on the table. When the main courses...

We walked into this restaurant because the menu looked good and it was very close to where we were staying on Piazza di San Giovanni in Laterano. It was after 10pm on Easter Sunday and the restaurant was full of locals including a large table of all ages with their dog – a very good sign. We were greeted with... More

Staying in Esquilino

Neighborhood Profile
Esquilino
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighborhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighborhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic center. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
