This is a first class dining experience. We enjoyed meeting new people and tasting the wonderful pasta creations, plus Hunter chicken was delectable. Wine selection was terrific.

Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only
way to describe the Esquilino neighbourhood. The

its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub,
Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot

They offer a menu, but you can change if you dont want something. Focus is on the meeting new people not on food. But food is very good.
