Tucked away we were lucky to find this only because it was near to our hotel. We were able to get a small table and realise we should have booked as it is obviously very popular and understandably so. It was our first meal in...More

Well nestled in Rome, Trattoria Monti will surprise you without any doubt. I had heard so much about it that I was expecting long waiting lines an extravagant place and a very « colorful » menu. Instead I was professionally greeted by a waiter that to my...More

We ate at this restaurant not once but twice during the lunch hours. The reason we went to this restaurant was that we saw on TV Franca Camerucci make a Tortello al Rosso D'uovo. After seeing this we decided that we needed to go to...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,
