This place is as the name implies "a hole." Very small with limited indoor seating but absolutely wonderful porchetta. Sandwiches are also made "to go" so if you just want to grab one and eat it while walking around Rome that would be a great idea. If not, they have about four small tables inside where you can sit and... More

This is a totally no frills dining experience. A tiny shop, if you blink you can miss it. It doesn't appear to have much of a varied menu but quite honestly I don't care... the reason you go here is for Porchetta. Slow cooked pork with herbs and seasoning in a crusty bread roll. I tried Porchetta from 3 different... More

Seasoned pork, bread and wine. I think there might have been other options but that is what I got and it was delicious. So good in fact I got a sandwich to go. It is a very small shop so don't go expecting to sit.

Classic. Memorable. Recommended by our tour group guide. 2 sandwiches a wine and a beer. 9.50 euro. Good "sangwhich", but come for the "feel" of old Italy!

The food is excellent and the place authentic. The owner is super nice and proud of this place. Menu, presentation and furnishings ate simple, and this is how it should be. I took the porchetta seved on a wax paper, provolene cheese, tomatoes in oil and a coca-cola. It is my second time here and in two years did not... More

Go to this place to feel like you've been thrown back 50 years to another, less pretentious Rome. It's a tiny, tiny place with three tables and another to stand at outside. The menu is limited but you only go here for one thing: the porchetta sandwich. We had one, on a crusty Roman roll. I expected it to be... More

You needn't go to any fancy restaurants in Rome to eat well (though obviously fancy restaurants are still very good), and this place sums it up. After going here on the first day, I went back every afternoon! It's a cosy little place, so don't expect to sit at a busy time. Don't expect much attention either. The Lazio supporter... More

Tiny place w/ only 3 tables. The porchetta is very good. I had a panino on a roll, 2 glasses of wine for 6 euro. Good location a couple of blocks from Piazza Repubblica and near Termini station.

This little sandwich shop is so traditional that they don't need frills Ora Or a fancy layout. The family -owned business makes great Porchetta or Formaggio panini...quality ingredients and a good price. ..

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.
