We ordered pasta and it was fresh and so delicious. The restaurant is cosy and the service was friendly. The desserts were also tasty so if you want an aunthentic Italian Tiramasu then don't miss out on this place.

Trattoria Cecio was recommended by our hotel staff (Mecenate Palace) and we are very happy we took their advice. Cecio is small, but we had a reservation and were able to be seated on-time. Their menu is quite extensive and we had some difficulty deciding...More

Chanced this place on passing after looking on Trip Advisor. Staff friendly and welcoming, food is average unfortunately compared to everywhere else we’d been. Had been doing a carbonara tasting at various restaurants and this was the worse (however still okay), desert was nice though....More

Do not go there if you want to eat real Italian food. It looks like a popular restaurant at first but it’s just crowded with foreign people and I see why there were no locals after eating their dish. The foods are horrible. Inside the...More

We ate here two out of the four nights that we were in Rome. It’s a great little restaurant, the food is really great and the staff are all lovely. It’s advisable to book in advance as it gets busy.

By far the best meal we had during our 3 night 4 day stay! Loved by the locals, with authentic Italian cuisine at reasonable prices. We had 2 courses and wine for €90. The Steak with gorganzola is my partners favourite meal back in the...More

The family-owned Cecio (owner’s nickname, we learned) was recommended by our hotel (Ariston) and is a 2-minute walk on the other side of the block. The reviews are accurate; small place, great food, charming service. We arrived shortly before our 8 pm reservation, which was...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

its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub,
Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot
