Our family was in Rome for a week and we ate breakfast there 4 times. The pastries, muffins and coffee and all fantastic. The prices aren't cheap, but this is really high-quality food.

We stumbled across this place completely by accident but we ended up trying two lovely little pastries. We tried the whole wheat blueberry pastry and the ricotta and chocolate one. Both were lovely (although the blueberry one was significantly tastier) It's a nice little stop to grab a cheap, freshly made and tasty cake! They did do savoury snacks and... More

We stumbled on this restaurant for lunch en route to St. John Lateran. We saw other people ordering the Cacio e Pepe and ordered the dish ourselves, having no idea what it was. It was incredible. Amazingly good. The best meal we had on our honeymoon, and one we are still savoring. No other restaurant came close to having as... More

We stopped at Panella for a snack and had some really tasty light savoury snacks. Basically they were little balls of puff pastry with a range of fillings - salmon, anchovy, ham etc, which the staff warmed up in the oven. They were very moreish and melted in your mouth. I think Panella is primarily a bakery and has a... More

Found this lovely little Cafe one evening near where we was staying in Rome and the food is divine. So many different tasty little delights and great cocktails to accompany them. We paid €15 per head which gives you one drink and you can go back to the food counter as many times as you like for more. We all... More

Tiramisu was exquisite and the outdoor patio seating is lovely where we thoroughly enjoyed late May showers comfortably dry .. Oh, the espresso there was fantastic (coming from a tea lover)!

They have an amazing variety of fresh pastries, mainly sweet, but they have some pizza and sometimes other italian dishes too. It is not just a bakery, the have a shop with wide variety of foods, like honey, jams, canned goods, spirits, wines, coffee, etc. They have very good coffee in the morning, but the service is a bit slow....

While waiting to get my ticket I stopped in the little eatery and enjoyed a nice meal. Very friendly but a little hard to communicate in English. Very roomy and bright area to eat in with local and other travelers had fun communicating with others while dining. After your meal you can spend the day walking through the gardens.

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.
