RESTAURANT'S FAVOURITE REVIEW
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2017 via mobile

We ate here twice during our 5 days in Rome. Our hotel had recommended it and we were very impressed with the quality of the food, the very reasonable price and the lovely friendly staff.

This place was so amazing we went back a second night. The staff was so friendly and helpful! First night I got pizza (so good) and the second night, pork chops (also amazing). Menu has tons of options and the prices are moderate. The atmosphere was great. Would totally recommend.

We went there 3 times on our stay in Rome. The staff were very kind and speaks good english. The food was great we even got a free dessert as well. And most importantly the prices are low. I have not seen any lower in our stay elsewhere. We only can recommend this restaurant. We will be back 100%.

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.
