Wonderful traditional Italian food with great atmosphere

We ate here on our short break in Rome. We were 9 and called in advance to reserve a table which was prudent as the restaurant soon filled up. We sampled many dishes; salads, home made pastas, osso bucco, lamb, fish, saltimbocca and of course home made tiramisu and panna cotta. We took a litre... read more

This is an amazing place to eat and try specific Italian cuisine. I was very impressed by the quality of the food, it is the first time when I am happy with my food in Rome. It is a family trattoria and you really need to try it when you are in Rome.

The trattoria is run by two brothers who are the waiters.The Chef is a lady who has worked there for 51 years. The service was ok, but if your after chilling and eating the service gives you time to chat. the food... More

We were recommended to this fabulous restaurant by the receptionist at the Hotel Savoy when we advised her that we didn't want to sit in a restaurant full of tourists (and pay tourist prices) but wanted to eat with the locals. Although this restaurant (which is near to Ternini rail station) involved a taxi ride costing seven Euros it was... More

The service was really poor. Mom ordered the lasagna which was okay. Dad ordered the zucchini/prawn pasta which was mediocre. I had the spaghetti carbonara which I didn't like at all--just the color of it alone didn't look right. We were told it was "great Italian food, cooked by italians" so we had really high hopes for it, and we... More

It was very busy on a Tuesday night and the service was very slow, however the food was delicious and it was good value for money.

I ate dinner here with a work colleague. We had read many of the reviews for this small restaurant, so we knew that fast service was not likely, and I think this has to be in your mind when you visit. Be prepared for plenty of time to chat. The dining room is small and very closely packed with tables,... More

A perfect example of homemade Italian food. Relaxed atmosphere. A great off the beaten path experience. I recommend this place to anyone traveling to Rome!

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.
