The best carbonara we have tasted in Italy. Previous reviews said that the service was bad but we were felt looked after by the young waiter.

The carbonara was delicious, but the waitress and the cashier were probabbly the rudest persons i've met so far in Rome. The cashier basically threw our credit cards back at us and was very rude, and the waitress kept insisting that we ordered two courses...More

As others have noted, the service here can vacillate between courteous and condescending. On the whole our experience with our servers was quite nice and relaxed. Eye rolling was observed later in the evening but it was not a direct experience so it would be...More

I can't stop thinking about the bowl of cacio e pepe I ate at this restaurant. It was served out of a wheel of parmesan, wheeled out and prepared in front of me. Easily the best bowl of pasta I ate in Rome. The atmosphere...More

Visited with my daughter. Neither of have big appetites so we just went for pasta and dessert. I had the feeling that this was disapproved of, as they had to turn other guests away after we'd arrived. My cacio e pepe spaghetti was to die...More

I should have known better than to stray. The carbonara here is my favorite and that includes the carbonara at Pipero al Rex. Here, everything balances in your mouth like a nice chemical equation. Just enough runny egg but not too runny. Just enough cheese...More

One of the best restaurants in Rome, the food is amazing, the staff and the owner are very welcoming and the atmosphere is very characteristic. I was here last year and loved it and will keep coming back every time I will be in Rome

Small but very cosy traditional Roman trattoria. Excellent antipasti although our shared serving was quite smallish. The carbonara with black truffle was to die for, one of the best pasta dishes I've had, and a creamy tiramisu to top it of. An extensive wine list...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,
