Visit from HK, trying out local places. Reasonable priced local place in a metro city. Had mussel and clam, very juicy. Spaghetti with clam, tasty. Beef streak, excellent quality. Tiramisu was just right. Staff was very friendly. And yes, we heard other people back for 2nd time. Needless to say why. Go and taste yourself.

Great staff, good food, good atmosphere. A restaurant that didn't try and rip you off as a tourist (of which you can unfortunately find several in Rome). Even though they try and solicit you on the street corner, which is often the sign of a tourist trap, this place is the real deal and has family-friendly cuisine from pizza to... More

We went to this restaurant at the recommendation/referral of our hotel, Eurostars Aeterna. The restaurant offers a shuttle pick-up/drop-off service from local area hotels. I understand why - it's a bit off the beaten path. That service came in handy when we didn't want to deal with the transit/taxi options. There were plenty of local and authentic dishes with dozens...

During our 5 day visit, we went there 3 times. The food is really good and the staff is very friendly! The restaurant is almost always full. Someone leaves, 2 minutes later the table is taken again. Many people come back several times. In the evening, a nice accordinoist comes by to play for everyone. Nice guy, can play very... More

Really recommendable venue when looking for a fantastic (late-)night dinner in the citycentre of Rome. They have a shuttle service included free of charge which is "door to door" based. When arriving at the venue the host will be waiting to welcome you and will assign you the best fitting seats available. They have a big variety in terms of... More

My wife and I spent 6 nights in Rome. We ate at many different restaurants but continuously found ourselves back at Il Tempio Di Minerva. The staff made us feel like family, the food was by far the best Italian food in Rome and the ambiance and outdoor dining was exactly what we were looking for in a dinner spot.... 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.
