It was only a short distance to our hotel so we decided to try it out. It was a good choice because the food was tasty and the service was great. The prices are acceptable and it is not too expensive.

Ate here on my first night in Rome with the girlfriend, traditional dishes served that tasted amazing. I had the Diavola pizza, she had the Spaghetti Bolognese & loved it. Focaccia bread on the side was spot on & cocktails are here have proper measures. Tiramusu dessert looks & tastes amazing, you have to try it!

I was looking forward to eating here. I had read the reviews and it was only a short distance to my hotel. i was disappointed, not with the food - the food was lovely, but the waiting staff did not make me feel welcome or comfortable. I am a solo traveler so I often eat on my own. This was... More

The best Tiramisu I have ever tasted. Most of our party agreed. One thought the Tiramisu accross the street was better.

Nice food, reasonable prices. Staff were friendly and attentive enough. Had lunch/dinner there a few times during our stay in Rome because it was 1 minute from where we were staying and it was handy. Last 2 days and 3 courses each and then gave us a limoncello "goodbye" which was nice of them. Pasta al dente, pizza crust thin... 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.
