Went here on my last night and was fairly quiet as everyone was seated on the garden terrace. The food was good but you felt quite rushed. No sooner had one plate been cleared the next was in fron of you. I had to asked them to wait before serving dessert. It is ok but you may well have t... More

As with another restaurant nearby the previous evening, we chose this place because of its proximity to our hotel, bad idea ! Get a taxi, the metro, even walk, but give this place a miss. We really have nothing nice to say, the food was bland, we were offered cheese for a shellfish pasta! The service was average, the wine... More

This place, located very close to station Termini, does not look like much from the outside, however it is a hidden gem which should be given a chance. The building has great history as part of the city fortress. They offer great food, beautifully prepared, served with exceptional service and a complimentary Lemonciello to complete the meal. You won't be... More

We were hoping for outdoor seating on a quiet street and stumbled onto something better. Built into what looks from the outside like old ruins, the maze of rooms and tables on the way to the terrace had great atmosphere. The terrace was cool in the evening and we didn't notice any mosquitos. Our food was excellent (Lobster linguini and... More

Excellent rooftop garden! The staff is friendly and eager to suggest a dish. The food was very good and well-worth the slightly high prices.

While walking near our hotel for a quick lunch, we were encouraged to come inside for a table in the 2nd floor with air conditioning on a very hot day. We were seated outdoors with no breeze but decided to stay because of the charming setting. My wife and I ordered fettuccine with meat sauce (12 euro) and my daughter... More

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.

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.
