OK food over priced: Apart from that they tried to overcharge us at the end of our meal. When I called them out on this the waiter was rude and didn't apologise. If your reading this go somewhere better!

Unfriendly staff, feeling of being pushed to eat fast and let the table free. Biggest mistake is quality of food looks and tastes industrial..

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
