Best falafel I've ever had. I didn't want to order them because I'm often so disappointed. My husband got them as an appetizer and they were amazing. The breading on the outside was super crunchy. Inside was not under cooked or doughy. I could taste the grittiness like it was freshly grounded chickpeas. It was perfectly seasoned. It really hit... More

If you like hot spicy exotic cuisine, go to Kilimanjaro Ethiopian restaurant in Rome, located not far from the railway station.

We have tasted a typical african plate...with meat and mashed vegetables and lentils on an african pie maybe of corn... it was tasteful...although too hot!! You don't need cultery even if you wish to. Nice african atmosphere... Tasteful dessert something like tahini with melt chocolate...delicious!!

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.
