Every trip to Rome, for me, includes a stop at Er Buchetto. I love the extremely small space. Gives the 120+ year old establishment such a cool vibe. The Porchetta is fabulous. Such a simple sandwich. Generous slices of the pork and bread. No need...More

This is a really small shop but definitely with big flavours. Wonderful pork with that nice crackling of the skin served in a panino. Simply delicious must visit for the best authentic porcetta.

This is a tiny restaurant with only a few tables and simply idea: order your Porchetta (pay per kg) and side from a very small menu. Best Porchetta in Rome city center. Otherwise you have to go to Frascati/Ariccia out of city but this tiny...More

Er Buchetto is small, but from the second you sit down in the worn wooden bench seats you realize you’re eating in a local institution. The pork is amazing, both the sandwich and open slices. I envied the locals ordering 2kg of pork to go....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
