Fantastic italian food, (pastas were delicious). Nice and confortable outdoor eating. The employees were very nice and change the bottle of wine that we taste previously (and don't liked). We went for two dinners.....to repeat next time in Rome.

We arrived in Rome a couple days ago and found this great place. Went back a second time and had not only great food, but fun waiters. They explained the dishes and were quick with suggestions. The house white wine was fantastic. Make it stop if in Rome

This is a typical tourist location, you'll see no native Roman eat there - ever. Food and service were average. But the prices are too high. For the same price you could go to an Osteria (ex. La Sol Fa) and have an excellent meal with primi and secondi. Wouldn't go there again.

The meal was great, the staff was very enjoyable (ask for Ivan) and the limoncello has to be the best in town! I would recommend this place to anyone visiting Rome!

Food was tasteless and boring. Not an Italian guest in sight which is always a worrying sign. Reviews here reflect the patronage I guess. Overpriced for the quality. Don't go here if you are looking for a real Italian restaurant!!

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.
