Best restaurant I've been to so far in Rome - food was amazing and so was the customer service. The staff was lovely and treated us like royalty - can't wait to go back!!

Excellent dinner, kind and attentive staff, reasonable prices. And if that was not enough: a lift home after a hot and tiresome day by super friendly Manolo was included. I am sure we will come back here next time in Roma! Warmly recommended.

Pizza was not honey, poor. Service is only half-tone, non-informative. Prices are really quite high, but in other restaurants, it's more fun to eat the same amount.

Good morning, sorry that the pizza was not appreciated because customers are generally very happy after eating our pizza. The service is very professional and friendly, the prices are average. Please return to change her mind. Regards the staff of the Temple of Minerva

Hello, I think you are certainly wrong restaurant because our service we never did pay and above all we never cooked spaghetti with salmon and cheese, so I guess as usual one of the restaurants near our email you accommodated pretending to be our restaurant....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
