We enjoyed the €100 tasting menu & €60 wine pairing immensely. Plus, the service was impecable. We arrived a few minutes early & we were seated in a beautiful library and given a glass of delicious bubbly. The main dining area is spectacular. This restaurant will soon have 3 stars!

I am not sure I can accurately describe the amazing experience. 6 tables total, quaint and simple décor with a staff second to none. We choose the Chef's tasting menu, I believe 9 courses, that were just keep getting better. We were truly in awe of the presentation and the creativeness of the food and the explosion or tastes in...

We visited Pipero al Rex on our first evening in Rome after reading up on restaurants on trip advisor and I am so glad we did! I am a vegetarian and there was plenty of choice and even the option for the taster menu to be tailored and made suitable. Attentive knowledgeable staff and great wine made the evening even... More

We were squeezed in for a last minute, late reservation (9.30pm). Good ambiance and attentive service- we had the tasting menu with wine accompaniment, which was definitely worth it! The courses included an incredible fish course in a pretty little pot, and a huge portion of their signature carbonara. Great wine choices and a mighty shot of rum with desert.... More

Wow. All I can is say is wow. Mr Pipero came by and offered us the regular menu or his tasting menu. We went for the tasting menu and are so glad we did! This restaurant is small and decorated sort of modern and minimalistic. We loved the ambiance and would absolutely return. Each course was a work of art... More

We went to Pipero al Rex (the restaurant is located inside the hotel Rex, and owned and managed by Sig. Alessandro Pipero, hence the name) for dinner on Sep 21, shortly after having arrived into Rome. They welcomed us as if we were long time patrons, greeting us warmly since we arrived at the Pipero, and as a table was... More

This is an extraordinary restaurant with the best service and food in the city. This was my favorite restaurant in Rome. The restaurant's ambiance is clever and their food presentation is fascinating! The food is just absolutely amazing and fills your mouth with unique, complex flavors that match perfectly! Our waiter, Achille, picked by the glass wines that perfectly suited... More

This is a true gem. The whole food experience is out of this world. All dishes starting with the appetizers and continue with the mains and deserts are of superb quality. This chef has a true talent. We also enjoyed all the matching wines suggested by the sommelier. Thank you Pipero al Rex, great job !

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.
