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

I doubt that. I just assume that they don’t pick up the phone. I was only there once and didn’t make a reservation. Just go there and check. The wait won’t be long

The best is to go there one day before or earlier the same day you'd like to reserve, and ask them to reserve a table for you. Quite annoying that they don't pick up the phone but worth it for the food ;)
