Difficult to find this place as it is tucked away down an alley but sadly wasn't worth the effort. Not very good food and lacklustre service in a dull establishment.

Fantastic food from start to end. Traditional Roman cuisine with a touch of innovation. Flavors that can conquer your devotion to each bite. Best meal in Rome we had.

We were staying in the area and struggled to find nice places to eat that weren’t turning people away because they were full. We were lucky to get a table here, if you can reserve I would recommend it, it is a very small restaurant...More

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
