We spent 6 days in Rome and this place served some of the very best food we ate anywhere. So much so, we ate there every night. I can't recommend this place highly enough. Very personable staff as well. Andrea was just wonderful!

Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas
in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s
