Our B and B recommended this. Great experience. Moderate prices, and good selection. Service was very good. I had a superb vegetable soup. Normally, my wife doesn't like vegetable soup, but she ended up taking half of mine. I also had a divine Veal Scampi....More

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

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.
