I was looking for takeaway and found this place that appeared promising- people were sitting outside and the waitress was friendly when I walked in. I ordered a pizza and calzone for takeaway- they do not take credit cards (annoying more than anything because this wasn't posted anywhere that I noticed before getting to the point of trying to pay)....

I reviewed this restaurant last March and gave it a great recommendation. On our most recent trip to Rome this month, we were anxious to revisit a place we enjoyed so much. What a disappointment that was. Everything we liked about the restaurant has changed for the worst. Our server was uninterested and unknowledgable about anything on the menu. We... More

I have just come back from a 4day holiday and while on the trip we visited this restaurant and thought it looked nice but were met with some very rude people who constantly stared at us and seemed to be talking about us as they looked over and whispered from afar which make us feel uncomfortable not to mention the...

Had meal here as it was nearly next door to our hotel San Remo. Went for fixed price menu and it was adapted to meet two fussy vegetarians 😊 would recommend this restaurant for a friendly and tasty meal that does not break the bank ☺️

It seemed popular and busy but was really quite disappointing. Pasta was plain enough and compared to some Other meals we had on our holiday. I'd recommend avoid.

Our hotel ( San Remo ) is a stone’s throw from this lovely little restaurant which seems in a very peaceful location given it’s proximity to Termini. It has a number of outside tables one of which we occupied. The menu is quite extensive with most pasta dishes on the a la carte being in the €8 – €12 bracket... More

Staying in Esquilino

Neighbourhood Profile
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 famous seven hills. From an ancient neighbourhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic centre. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
