I was a little boy when I ate the real pizza in naples, I lost my memory, but I found it in this place. , the main difference is cheese mozzarella, inimitable, wood-burning or cooked with electric oven is less important. Mozzarella cheese number one!

Both starter and main course were nothing to get excited about. Not a lot of care goes into this, and it shows. Service was friendly, but you can do a lot better in Rome.

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,
