Nice unassuming family joint for our last meal in Rome. We ordered the ravioli and mushroom risotto as mains. Both filling and flavoursome. You can only order wine by the bottle here. Nice selection of desserts too and a very relaxed vibe.

Ate there twice both times after 9PM. The first time the food was good, the atmosphere also. Like others mentioned, a mix of locals and tourists. The portions were large and we brought the leftovers to our apartment that was 5 minutes away. The second...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
its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub,
Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot
