Loved this place. It is surely not very popular and a hidden place near termini station. We were staying at Smart hotel and was craving for other kind of cuisine. Don't be surprised if the place looks deserted but surely go their for the authentic...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
