Highly recommend ordering the cacio e pepe. They bring it to the table in a Parmesan wheel and put it on your plate. Service was excellent. They even brought a dessert to the table when we told them that we were celebrating my brother and...More

Must visit this wonderful restaurant! My friends and I had an amazing meal with great service. We arrived at about 12:50 pm, shortly before the restaurant opened and were seated right away. We had the pasta with black pepper (cacio e peppe) and black truffle...More

Visited with my daughter. Neither of have big appetites so we just went for pasta and dessert. I had the feeling that this was disapproved of, as they had to turn other guests away after we'd arrived. My cacio e pepe spaghetti was to die...More

I have visited da danillo many times in the past 10 years...a classic when I am coming to Rome Needless to say that service has never been the attraction of the restaurant but after an unpleasant start we usually managed to relax the atmosphere (ordering...More

Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only
way to describe the Esquilino neighbourhood. 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 neighbourhood to
its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub,
Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot
