Local tavern with good italian food

Close to the Station of Roma Termini in not a Touristic quarter, a good local tratorai, with tasteful italian food and goo services.

The food and ambience of the restaurant was pretty good. I ordered the bucatini all'amatriciana, a typical Roman dish, which was very nice! My girlfriend ordered the lasagne which was OK but I don't think she would order again. The meal was of good price, the house wine was especially good value (€5 for 500ml). Our only real issue was...

We went here on our first night in Rome. We walked past on the way to our hotel and we're given a leaflet and after reading reviews on here decided to give it a try. The food was really fresh and tasty and fairly priced. I'd definitely go again.

As a huge fan of spaghetti, I would highly recommend this place! I tried almost every meal under "Primi piatti" and I was impressed by all of them in terms of taste, presentation and quality. As a tourist, I always try to experience as many restaurants as possible when traveling, but this place just got me hooked! My favorite waiter,... More

We came here on our first night in Rome, after our hotel staff recommend it. We were given a glass of champagne on arrival (I'd assumed it was free, think we were actually charged for it but wasn't expensive) We both had pizza, we're both really nice. Was nice for our first night, was easy to find etc but did... More

Nice person the waiter, but terrible food. The spaghetti had no taste at all, and the pana cotta... Well, I couldn't even finish it. They put industrialized jelly kn it. Really cheap place but expensive for what it offers. The presentation of the place is good, but it's just image! Of course, this is what I ordered, maybe the other... More

Full of local Italians which was good to see. Staff were outstanding and nothing was too much trouble. The waitress also spoke fluent English, French, Portuguese and Spanish. Service was quick despite being very busy and the food was excellent. Presentation was a bit average but it really didn't matter considering the quality. Would definitely recommend. Nice little gem.

We unfortunately only found this fantastic family run restaurant on our last night. On arrival we were greeted by a warm and friendly waitress. Free wine on arrival. Food was easily the best meal we had all had during our 4 day stay in Rome. The food had a very "home made" feel as was top quality. Prices were very... More

We were staying in the area and decided to give La Taverna Italiana a try. The host was very pleasant and offered us some complimentary champagne. Ivan our server recommended their Chianti for $16 euro and it was amazing. Food was excellent and come on in perfect time. I had the Lasagna and I highly recommend it. We had a... 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.
