Good food in a nice atmosphere with friendly staff, nothing too much for them. Reasonable prices. You can eat outside or inside, downstairs.

Very cheap and good food, not top-gourmet but very valuable for the price. Service is very friendly, top-notch! Can highly recommend this place.

Walked in asking for a table for 2 plus baby. Told us that they don't have high chairs, we advised that our child can sit on a normal chair and they told us NO! next... They had empty tables.

Although this place was very close to the center of hotels in our area, it was quaint, quiet and then food very good. We had the steak, grilled vegetables and gnocchi with some Chianti. The waiter recommended most of it and it was spot on. We will plan to return during our stay.

Just a minute walk away from our hotel, this was ideal for a small group of 4 at dinner. The staff was very friendly, the food arrived quickly and tasted very good (and there was plenty of it!) and altogether we paid about €11 per head for main and soft drink which is very affordable, even for poor students!

Cute little place with very friendly staff, but the food--though plentiful--tasted like Chef Boyardee. There are lots of places like this. Beware the 15 euro tourist special!

We went for the set tourist menu and chose the gnocchi and the minestrone soup with pasta for starters - both were very tasty. Mains were ok, I had the fish which had an unusual skin on it, my partner had the chicken which he enjoyed accompanied with greens and potatoes. Dessert was the least enjoyable part of the meal,...

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.
