For incredible as it may seem, it is quite difficult to find good food in Rome with a reasonable price. But this is the place. We were three and all dishes were excellent, with a good home-made flavour. We strongly recommend.

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,
