Choose this restaurant because of its interesting old design. The roof top terrace was too cold and crowded so we went back downstairs. The seafood platter was deep fried to hell and spoilt the experience. The remaining meal and desserts were average. Not the best or worst meal we had in Italy. Plenty of other restaurants to choose from.

Just what we needed - a cool, quiet restaurant. We ate in air conditioned comfort on the 2nd level (there is apparently a roof top terrace, but it was too hot out!). Service was excellent - old school, in a way. We had prosciutto with melon and a caprese salad - both were excellent. The pastas were also both very... More

Food was ok, could be better (risotto & pasta fungi) price was good, not expensive. Atmosphere and service were very good.

This restaurant is tucked away in a location which is not very promising, but this is were the negatives ended for us. We were attracted by the mention of the roof terrace, but when we were shown to our table there we decided to eat inside because of the mosquitoes. Inside the restaurant is actually much more charming than the... More

We wanted to eat here because of the interesting character of the building. We were shown to the rooftop, which was nice, but nothing special. The service, however, was wonderful. Lots of attention given to us, and the food was delicious. I had one of the best Risotto's I've ever had in my life (shrimp and spinach) and my husband's... More

The "roof garden" overlooked an alleyway and all we smelled was trash for our entire meal. We couldn't wait to leave. The food was mediocre and the service was very poor. We were asked (demanded is more like it) for our drink order 4 times before anyone thought to take our food order. What a disappointment!

We are visiting Italy with another couple and spent our first few days in Rome. During our stay we came here twice, once for lunch and once again for dinner. We really enjoyed both meals. The service was very friendly and attentive. Between the two visits we downed 3 bottles of the house red wine, which we all loved. All... More

It is an elegant and almost an archeological restaurant. Made in to the ruins od the terme. So it is quite interesting as architecture. The food is good. We had fish which was excellent. It looks like very touristic but many local people go there.

Approaching this restaurant, it looks fantastic. Staff are very friendly and welcoming. Me and my girlfriend ordered the chicken and the carbonara. The chicken was bland and came with literally no sides. Ordering a side of vegetables with it didn't help as was very basic and lacked any real flavour. The carbonara wasn't too bad, not bad for the price... More

Staying in Esquilino

Neighborhood Profile
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.
