Well I have one officia Carbonara Evaluator: my Daughter who have asked for Carbonara at all Roman restaurants. For her here is the best one. Amazing attention and Mr. Danilo also is a nice guy. Besides the Carbonara all the pastas was amazing.

Highly recommend ordering the cacio e pepe. They bring it to the table in a Parmesan wheel and put it on your plate. Service was excellent. They even brought a dessert to the table when we told them that we were celebrating my brother and...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
