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!!

A 3-minute walk from our hotel, La Taverna became our go-to spot for dinner. During our 15 day stay we tried almost everything on the menu from salads to pasta and pizza or anti-pasta and desserts...everything was so good! Reasonably priced and open everyday...the staff is young and hip, very willing to please...try the house red!

I went to this restaurant on the recommendation of our hotel, who also gave us a10% discount voucher, which only pays the 10% service charge but it was better than nothing. The food is fine we had no issues with that, but the restaurant is in a street of about 6 others and is quite expensive in comparison, but the... 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.
