I came here with some work colleagues who knew this restaurant well. Great atmosphere and lovely food - and lots of laughs with the staff. We had a range of simple antipasti - ham and melon, etc. - followed by great pasta. The ravioli are extraordinary! Great spaghetti too. For secondi most of us had involtini which were just great...

This lovely family run restaurant is not going to be to everyone's taste, and will doubtless attract some negative comments from those whose primary concern is timely and efficient service and the aesthetic appeal of the food on their plates. But this restaurant is one of a dying breed - the kind of family-run restaurant that gives a warm welcome,... More

I live in Rome and always take my visitors to Dell'Omo as it’s the most authentic Italian restaurant I know. The family who run the Trattoria are kind and welcoming. The food is amazing and the Amaro is delightful! I highly recommend!

A stone's throw from Termine, this unassuming family run trattoria in via Vicenza is excellent. It is true you may not wish to be in a hurry but this takes nothing away from the quality fresh cooked food. Also the availability of a reasonably priced house carafe adds to the all round affordability - still a feature of the best... More

It's five minutes away from Rome's main train station so if you are in the area and want an alternative to the station food joints, this restaurant is perfect. On the menu there are all the typical local dishes and the quality is very good. It was really an excellent discovery!

Luckily we had a reservation, as there were lots of people wanting to eat here. Food was excellent and very reasonable in price. For 33€ we had 2 courses and beer. Fun atmosphere!

Can't speak highly enough of this place, the food, the service, the character of this local restaurant are all impeccable. We arrived at 7pm to the start of a queue outside with the restaurant not opening until 7.30 by which time the queue filled every table still leaving some waiting outside. Worth the wait!

This place was right beside my hostel and though it seemed a bit pricey it also looked nice and so decided to stay for dinner. Unfortunately, the wine sauce was bland, the vegetable side dish was mushed broccoli and overcooked spinach, and the cheese platter uninspired. I wouldn't recommend it for a nice meal in Rome.

What a find! Wonderful, old-fashioned trattoria of the type that is disappearing, alas, in Rome. Superb food in the old Roman style, excellent home-made pasta and I had Saltimbocca alla Romana which was to die for.

Hola all, We wanted an authentic dinner close to our hotel and this little trattoria was the perfect choice. We decided to walk over to make a reservation and mama was just opening up (around 6pm). We don't speak Italian and she does not speak English. Luckily, the gentleman working next for explained that we would like a reservation for... More

Staying in Esquilino

Neighborhood Profile
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 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.
