The best place to eat, whatever you order, you won't be disappointed. The service is good, real italian charm but the food is to die for. The only problem is to get the place, even if you go a day in advance will not guarantee...More

One of the oldest, traditional restaurants in Rome. The service is good, the design definitely needs an upgrade, but the food is worth it.

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

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 ;)
