Nice food just don't be in a hurry.

The food was nice and they have very good coffee here. We went here on our last day when we were just wandering around killing time before catching our flight, so it was fine that we were able to kill an hour just chilling and enjoying the food. Some of the waiters were not very attentive as it was... read more

We only stopped in for dessert on our last night in Rome, but I wish we'd had a chance to eat here. The service is great and the shop itself is so cute and charming. All of the food looks delicious. We had the tiramisu - so yummy!

Came across Panella by chance. A relaxing walk from the Colloseum. A busy popular "bakery" selling delicious coffee (of course) with every imaginable bread-like temptation - sweet and savory. Stop and eat in at the bar or at table, or take away something special for later.

We dropped by because we read about the pasteries on Google which I must ay were very good. However, the star of our visit was definitely the Panellino! It's a coffee beverage with with different flavored chocolates and cream on top- It was a like drinking a piece of heaven! Definitely worth a visit!

Delicious morsels! The pizza slices were great and the little pasties were fab. You can sit outside to eat or inside for service.

Came here on a Sunday at 8 before our flight back home and had a nice breakfast. They have mostly pastry, but in a huge selection.

We've walked in there to have a morning coffee but ended up having coffee and delicious snacks with it. What a shame it would be if we haven't! Coffee has been great (made in very impressively looking coffee machine) and we've chosen some random treats from very good selection of sweet pastry served there - it has gone down a... More

Wow! Just 3 minutes from our hotel we stumbled upon Panella. It is a bakery but doubles up as a bar/tapas place in the evening. The bakery is 5 stars by itself but we ended up having our evening meal through what they term "Happy Hour". It was happy as well! You pay 15 Euros for a cocktail and then... More

We had breakfast in this bakery and we were dragged in by the nice smell which was hard to resist. They do many different options and everything was freshly baked in there.

This is a nifty bakery in Rome that has something to please everyone! There are breads of all kinds, croissants, sweet rolls, pizzas, and cakes to die for. There is also an interesting shop with a wide variety of specialized Italian products. But what I like the most about Panella is their "panellino". It is their very own creation which... 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.
