Staff was so friendly, that I thought I'm not in Rome at all anymore! Service was also extremely fast, even the restaurant was full of people. We also enjoyed the food very much, especially panna cotta was just delicious.

My wife and I sat inside to eat dinner around 8pm after a long day. We throughly enjoyed the food, the atmosphere, and the service. Everyone was friendly and a couple spoke broken English. By far the best chocolate mousse I've ever had. And that's saying something coming from this die-hard chocoholic. House white wine was fantastic as well!

Dropped in here on the way to our nearby hotel for a takeaway pizza. Staff were very helpful & the spritz i had whilst waiting was superb. The pizza, eaten back in the room was good, not great, however is was more than acceptable.

Visited here whilst staying at the hotel Ariston just round the corner. Food was good, service was adequate at best, restaurant was generally clean but the waiting staff were all wearing trainers! Would probably visit again, although there is a similar restaurant just up the road which looks nicer and if I hadn't already got a reservation, would've stopped in... More

We were staying in a hotel just round the corner from here and had a quick look on trip advisor for recommendations nearby, glad we came across this restaurant as the service was friendly, the food was good and was washed down delightfully by the delicious house white wine. Portion sizes were very good, and the price even better. Would... More

We've tried pastas and pizza neapoli, the former were very good, the latter just average. Staff just average but helpful. Possible payment with card. Chair were uncomfortable, taverna inside is nice but not very spacious.

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 the waiter invited me to... 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

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.
