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

Hi Carolyn, Its probably too late to be helpful now, but I just got back from Rome and ate here a couple of times. £40 euros seemed to cover 2 of us for water, main meal, desert and a glass of house wine. Lemocello was free!

The restaurant "Baths of Diocletian" has been in business since 1986 and has now found its precise location in the capital's restaurant scene. The strength of our business is the professionalism and friendliness of its staff, coordinated by the brothers Dario and Michael Califano who, having taken over the business for about 4 years have brought their experience gained in restaurants and a high level attractive environment that led to immediate success. Of course, these weapons are not just winning. Contributes in a decisive manner, a varied menu of fish and meat from the impression typically Mediterranean cuisine with an emphasis on Roman cuisine, where classic flavors come together with some innovative touches typical of the chef. Another distinctive feature of the restaurant is the deep attention to the history of its local input in the area that was occupied by the majestic monument of the ancient Roman Baths of Diocletian, which was the largest thermal baths of ancient Rome. The ancient baths in addition to the central group of buildings now transformed into the church of Santa Maria degli Angeli and the Roman National Museum, are two of the four round corner that currently houses the restaurant Baths of Diocletian.The venue for its strategic location, very well connected by bus and metro, as well as a large car park, offers a unique environment: its spacious rooms, on two levels and all air conditioned, accommodating up to 200, creating the right atmosphere, by the informal working lunch, the romantic dinner, and is specialized for the reception of tourist groups and tours operators.During both summer dinner is served in the roof garden, in a setting of elegance and charm, only in the heart of the Eternal City.
