We ate here on two separate occasions, and both times the meals were exquisite. We are relatively early diners so we don't suffer from crowded restaurants as a rule. The down side is that you can get over waited which can be a little oppressive...More

I had looked this restaurant up on here before going to Rome, I was so happy that the reviews were true. They didn't have what I wanted on the menu which was not a problem at all, the waiter (maybe owner) recommend something different, it...More

Loved this restaurant! The staff were really friendly and not at all pushy (unlike the waiter from the restaurant next door). The food was delicious and very reasonably priced. We had 2 pizzas, a side order of fries, 3 soft drinks and a tirimisu all...More

Ate here due to proximity to our hotel. Service was good, food was tasty. Reasonable selection of wines. Prices were not over the top. Surprised at the end when advised 'cash only'. Not ideal when it's the last night in Italy (& the Euro zone)....More

Great service, fabulous food, the mushroom risotto was the best in Italy. They were not pushy like other restaurants in the area.

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

its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub,
Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot
