best pizza I have ever eaten!

we were there according to recommendation of our hotel, the restaurant is not directly in the city but if you have time, you should go. we went there twice :) the prices are very "normal" and the taste of pizzas and Panna cotta is amazing. Just try!

This is located on a corner near the mid to low-priced hotels near Termini Station. The food is what you'd expect--about 20-30% more expensive than anything in adjoining neighborhoods/along adjoining blocks if you walk a couple of minutes; pretty bland; and yet nonetheless Roman so it'll satisfy the less-discerning of tourists. What really pissed me off about this place wasn't... More

This restaurant had a very nice ambiente with menus in several languages. Food was okay for the prices but you can certainly find better restaurants in this price range.

The food was ok, but not more. The service was not the best. We were never asked whether we would like a dessert or not. There were enough staff to follow up, but they were too inattentive.

Maybe the location was not the most desirable, but my husband and I went for a walk in a different part of town, where we hadn't been and it turned out to be very interesting walk with a great meal. It really was delicious and it had a friendly staff.

Amazing food. Thank you Alice for this amazing recommendation !! Literally everything on this menu amazing. The appetizers are to die for. The eggplant Parmesan we had to order doubles. The carcoi Pepe and penne arabiatta and the amitriciana were phenomenal. They made it really special by bringing out an amazing ice cream cake

Ate here on the second night of our holiday in Rome as it was close to the hotel and we were quite tired from a busy day. What a great choice it was. My boyfriend and I are quite picky when it comes to finding a nice place to eat and usually go for more upmarket restaurants. We were shown... More

I visited here with my girlfriend as we saw the reviews were nearly all great and it was only a short walk away from our hotel. We were greeted very politely by our waiter who showed us to our table and we were presented with complementary glasses of Prosecco. The food was wonderful great portion sizes and very delicious.

Most amazing food we tasted in Italy. The staff was so friendly and by the second night we visited it was like seeing an old friend. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

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.
