Flawless service

I visited this restaurant on a solo holiday with two new friends I met on a Vatican tour. I was actually my birthday so we decided to celebrate it together at this restaurant which was near their hotel (they'd eaten here a few nights before and recommended it). I actually arrived a bit early but... read more

Beautiful food, great service. Highly recommend. Service is great and food hits the table very quickly. I had steak and my husband had procuttio and melon.

Went here this evening was so disappointed. This was the worst food I've eaten in italy in the last 10 years. I ordered roasted lamb which came out as overcooked fatty off cuts of some of the chewiest cheapest lamb I've ever eaten. My other half ordered grilled chicken which was overcooked and tiny. She had a tomato salad consisting... More

We visited this restaurant on our first night in Rome as it was close by our apartment and seemed to have very good reviews on Tripadvisor. It was very disappointing right from the start. We should have left after the tattered, shiny plastic menus came out. The food was awful. I have no idea why this place has such good... More

It was worth to visit here although its place was far from metro station. The rate of quality-price was in moderation. House wines were cheap and qualified. We have took buffalo mozzarella and fried artichoke as starters; steak fillet with mushroom sauce, tre formaggi ravioli as main dishes; chocolate mousse and semi freddo with pistachio.(a kind of custard dessert) as...

Have been in Rome for a little over a week. We have been twice to this restaurant and both times we were happy with the food and service. The wine was good, the bruschetta was superb. We had pizza the first night and it was one of the better pizzas we've had in italy and the second time we had... More

A nice small cosy restaurant, friendly and attentative wait staff. The menu choice was reasonable and well priced. Food was very good for the price range - an appetiser, pizza, 1/2 ltr of wine and espresso only set me back 22€. House wine was ok for the 5€ it cost which was only option if you don't want a bottle.... More

Really normal restaurant..don't understand why it has such a great ranking. We ate two pizzas - not bad, but nothing special, and they charge us 3€ for a 0,5l bottle of tap water:(

On the recommendation of the hotel there is a little restaurant around the corner called Taverna Italiana. The food was superb, the owner and staff were pleasant and fun. we ate there 2 nights out of three because the food was so good. It was a house special that night but if they have it order the pistachio cream ravioli.... More

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.
