The restaurant was less than half full when we arrived, but we were taken to an ugly storage and supply area in a back corner. Though there were two of us, they could only manage to spare one menu which we could not share in our cramped area. The servers were very rushed when they dealt with us as the... More

When inquiring about authentic Italian food and restaurants, it was suggested we visit here. Indeed, it was very authentic! It seemed a family ran the place and they were incredibly nice. Very laid back. Food was fantastic. The whole feel of the place had a big community vibe. We ended up chatting up a storm and making friends with a... More

Had a nice dinner here. We all had pasta which was alright. My friends enjoyed their vongole, while I had porcini mushroom pasta which my other friend really loved.

Obviously a local favorite, in a residential as opposed to tourist area, so at least half the diners were local. The menu is extensive with emphasis on pasta and the wine list good for all pockets. Food is regional and hearty, what one would expect from a trattoria......until we ordered the Parma ham and mozzarella. Snowball sized mozzarella balls, fresh... More

I visited dell'Omo with my mom and Aunt. We chose this restaurant as our hotel was nearby and the ratings on TripAdvisor were favorable. We arrived at dell'Omo at 7:30PM on a Thursday evening. At first glance, we thought the restaurant was closed since we could see only empty tables inside. We cautiously entered and were quickly welcomed and invited... More

This is the best place to have a touch with the Italian cousine. The owner of the place is awesome and the food ... there are no words to describe it! It's absolutely awesome and the most important thing is it's homemade. It makes you feel like you are home and you get distracted of the fancy world that everyone... More

We sought this place out as we had read great reviews and were keen to eat in a traditional Roman Trattoria away from the beaten track. We were hugely disappointed. The restaurant was not busy when we arrived, maybe five tables if customers and two waiters. We were seated and then waited 25 minutes before we were given a menu.... More

When in Rome...I eat at dell'Omo. I was here earlier in the summer and there's no other place I'd rather eat. This was my fourth trip to Rome and I've always feel welcome when I sit down for dinner. I had numerous dishes and highly recommend the ox tail ragu with the homemade gnocchi if it's offered. Thank you again... More

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.
