The first time we went, we bought a birthday cake for my daughters 30th. Had my 4 daughters with me to celebrate. of course while we were there we had to get coffee and taste some treats. Mouth watering and service was great that night. We chose to go back on our last night to have a great experience on... More

A very cozy Italian all day bakery with fresh and delicious food! Try the capuccino with zabagione (egg yolk with sugar) is unique!

There are a few places you go that have a lasting imprint on the memory. Panella around Christmas time is one. Staying but 100 metres away we made this a daily haunt to drink the excellent coffee and watch an array of chic Romans come in to get their Christmas Cakes and Panettones. One afternoon they started making nougat out... More

A fantastic cafe in the centre of Rome. Superb coffee, and pastries that hit the mark. A tad on the pricier side, but welcome to Rome. A tip for young players - get in between 8am-11am for a few extra options (the custard/creme-filled croissants are a treat), and only on offer until 11am.

Upon entry, you experience a feast for the eyes by sculpted bread, decorations for every season and pastries designed to perfection. It is an atmosphere of excellence where you can indulge both your sweet and savory cravings. They serve pastries famous in various regions of italy, my favorites are the sfoglia filled with mirtilli (blueberries) or ricotta e visciole (cherries... More

We visited the place on a warm Sunday in November. The place seems really nice from the exterior and from the terrace you have a very nice view of Via merulana. A part from that the rest was a kind of nightmare. We opted for the self service, I took a "parmigiana di melanzane" 40 euros per kilo and a... More

This is a nice place in Via Merulana, just in front of Teatro Brancaccio. The quality of the food is undoubtedly good. It looks like everything is homemade. We got some pizza and artichokes, they were delicious. Only complaint is that the place is way overpriced. 16 euros for a couple of pizza slices and 2 artichokes is just unacceptable,... More

Popped into this attractive looking bakery on a leafy square for a quick lunch, as it looked sweet and was filled with locals. A small plate of pastries and 35 euros later, we walked out feeling like we'd been fleeced. The bill included 12 euros for 2 small lemonades! I hate to think what it would have cost if we'd... More

Staying in Esquilino

Neighbourhood Profile
Esquilino
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.
