The food was excellent, particularly the seafood risotto and sausage & sage pasta. Dessert was homemade and very tasty. Waiter/manager was very pleasant. Some of the best food I've eaten in Rome.

Esquilino

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
