I asked for a 4 cheese pizza, however what it didn't have was cheese! It was more expensive than more of the other good restaurants I've tried in Italy. Don't let the look of the pizza catch you're attention, is the typical bad pizza you find in every touristic pizzeria in Italy. The pizza was not good at all

More touristic than Italian. Great service though, nice people always smiling but not first class food. Average. Rather expensive.

WE all ordered different meals and everyone was happy with their choices whist the wine was reasonably priced and off a decent quality although our first two choices were not available! At the end of the meal a huge... More

This was the worst Italian we have ever eaten. All the sauces were fake! Terrible pasta and the risotto was barely edible. We wanted authentic Italian and it couldn't be further from it!!! Hope this helps some other travellers!

The pasta and pizza in this restaurant was maybe the best we ate during our visit to Rome. The pasta tasted homemade and the sauce was amazing in the dishes we tried. The antipasti was also tasty although a little expensive at €12 without bread. We visited this restaurant twice we enjoyed it so much. However the only thing that... 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.
