Good food!

We liked everything! Food, price, service. And it was well visited, always a good sign. You have to know the place, not in a touristic area of Rome.

It's great to find gems like this recommended by the Hotel Morgana we had a super late super. The pasta was absolutely perfect. The ravioli was magnificent while my wife's prawns and pasta were superb. Lovely atmosphere, great wine and very friendly staff we truly loved it. All in our night cost €60 and was excellent. A very high recommendation... More

We visited for my girlfriends birthday meal whilst in Rome for a few days on the recommendation of hotel Ariston where we were staying at just round the corner. When you first walk in it is very compact and quite intimate, we were no more than 1ft away from the table next to us. However,the staff are very friendly and... More

This great restaurant was recommended by the Hotel Morgana where we stayed in Rome. I must say that the dinner there was a highlight of our trip... We tried a few restaurants in the heart of the city, but this one was by far the best. The truffle ravioli was simply the most divine dish I tried in Rome. Worth... More

Conveniently located close to Termini station, we were able to walk one block from our Hotel (Morgana) who recommended and made our reservation. The restaurant itself was much smaller than I imagined but very pleasant, the furniture and surroundings were basic but did not deter from a good dining experience. There are a large number of options available for different... More

We visited Rome for four days and had four dinners. This one was the best, by far. First, the service was superb and extremely personable. They really made us feel at home. We had glasses of local red wine (excellent), bruschetta, homemade pasta with cheese and black pepper, salmon with lemon in orange sauce, a mixed salad with oil and... More

We went to this restaurant twice whilst on a short stay at Rome. The food on both occasions was absolutely amazing. I have to admit the best food I have ever tasted. A restaurant definitely not to be missed.

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.
