A lively and not too expensive place to eat

This restaurant was close to our hotel. We walked by when they were closed and were there when they opened for the evening (restaurants in Italy have a tendency to be closed between 15:00 and 19:00). The food was great and not too expensive. The wait staff was friendly. This is not the place to go... read more

We were lucky enough to get a table at 9pm with no reservation (would definitely reccommend booking- very busy) and had a great meal. Two great pasta dishes at €10 or less. Would definitely reccommend!

the food is amazing, the prices are reasonable, the service is good. One of the best places to grab a meal in Rome. The only drawback is that it gets a little noisy.

I hate writing negative reviews. Maybe they just had a really bad day or were super busy... I went there with a friend because of the good reviews and had high expectations. 1) they brought the appetizers when we already had our main courses 2) i asked the waiter if the bread contained rye because my friend was allergic. He... More

Enjoyable food but you must book! Tried walking in and while it didn't look busy we were turned away. Went back with a reservation and while there was a bit of kerfuffle over a table we got there. Food was lovely particularly cotelette and pasta dishes. Service a touch slow so going four stars.

This was recommended to us for the pasta arrabiata which was fantastic. The atmosphere was really vibrant and the entire meal was just very enjoyable.

Perfect, authentic italian food, and maybe the best mussels we have ever eaten. Nice and friendly service, not always as a standard in Roma!

Not too touristic, and with lots of roman charme. Amazing quality of food and prizes are more than ok!

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.
