Very good

Very good food the portions are just right some people may think they are small but you can order more than one dish so it is really no problem. The service was also very good and the staff was very professional and polite.

I've decided to have dinner again after half of a year of absence, in Rome, at Taverna with my wife and we also brought another couple. We've been welcomed immediately with a glass of prossecco each, making me feel special... and I realized that everybody was receiving it, which made me feel connected with all the people in the full...

We once again enjoyed our evening at La Taverna. Greeted with sparking wine is a nice touch! Our selections included the grilled vegetables which were well prepared, a typical salad and bruschetta. But the crowing jewel was the fish soup filled with mussels, calms, and shrimp in a wonderful broth. The dish was enough for two. The house wine was... More

Extremely disappointed with the meal we had after reading good reports on Tripadvisor. My husbands pizza was soggy and doughy and my fish smelt dreadful and tasted of nothing. All in all not a good experience. The tables are small and cramped, the decor dismal.

We absolutely loved the food. Our waitress was incredibly sweet and accommodating. Neither of us thought the price to be inflated.

Chanced upon this restaurant a few days into our visit to Rome, it became our go to place. Very good Italian food. Good selection of pizzas and pasta, but also of some traditional Italian meat and fish dishes. They appreciate return guests and ensure you are looked after and give that extra bit of attention. Prices are pretty average for... More

An average tasting pizza. Maybe their other dishes are better, as I've read in other reviews. But the service was good

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.
