We were recommended Cotto by the receptionist at our hotel when we first arrived in Rome. After visiting a gorgeous restaurant in Prague for our previous valentines celebrations, we wanted something that would live up to our expectations! Cotto is a very modern restaurant, and very spacious inside. Tables are spread out which is nice for privacy and experience. When... More

Dropped into this nice restaurant for a quick bite. It was very clean, modern and inviting. Service staff were exceptional. They had an extensive menu with both standard and uniquely Roman dishes. My son had a pizza, which was just fair, and I had a rather unusual ( but very good) pasta dish. Would dine here again if I had... More

My partner and I sought this out for Valentine's Day following the reviews on this site. I was pleasantly surprised when we walked in and found that the seating was fairly spaced out, so that you had some degree of personal space. The pasta was great, as was the fried calamari and veal escalope. The real touch for us though... More

In Rome whilst the other half follows the game for gentleman with odd shaped balls, we came across this lovely place! Prices were fair, food was very tasty and service was very quick! Menu in Italian and English and waiters also speak English! Families with young children are welcome too! Well worth a visit!

Staff received us warmly, seated us to our taste, and served us well and in English when desired. The restaurant has clean, contemporary surroundings, a serviceable menu, and excellent interior temperature for a cold Sunday in Rome. We really wanted a substantial salad, and the menu offered four or five. We chose the chicken, cheese, and lettuce and were not... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant and we liked it so much we went twice. The food was very familiar but with some interesting twists such as starter of smoked salmon with feta cheese and fresh orange (delicious!). The service was really good - helpful, friendly waiters really made us welcome.

Cotto has an arrangement with the Hotel Dharma next door and we had breakfast here (good stuff). We hadn't necessarily intended to eat here but on our third day (of five) we decided to give it a try - actually I refused to wander any more having been dragged around Rome's shops for five hours by High Command.

Great authentic Italian food at a fair price, food was cooked beautifully, served hot and washed down with chilled beer ( in big glasses) and a delightful red wine. An excellent eating experience enhanced by attentive and friendly staff. Would I go back again ? Yes we did.

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.
