Perhaps we had just been unlucky, but during our 4 night stay in Rome the food overall underwhelmed us. On our last night however, this restaurant did Rome a service in providing great pizza and good service! Would recommend.

Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas
in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s

I think they open reasonably, earlier than 7.30pm like a lot of places. We were there about 7.30 but other people were well in their meals by that time. Sorry I can't be more specific.
