We went there upon a recommendation from our hotel. We did read some TripAdvisor reviews prior but still where willing to try. Place it's a bit odd. Despite semi empty of Wed night, waiters where not to fuss if we will sit down or go else at all. They gave us menu, asked to choose a drink - standard, all... More

The owner of our apartment recommended this restaurant. It was our first visit to Rome so we trusted local knowledge. It was ok. Most of the pasta dishes were not available which was disappointing, and the past dish I did end up with tasted like tinned spaghetti. Wouldn't recommend.

Our apartment owner recommended eating at Nuovo Canestro, so we went the first night we were in town. We didn't-and wouldn't-go back again. In the first place, half of what we ordered was not available. I wanted spaghetti caccio e peppe, and the owner told me, "NO. This..." and gave me spaghetti amatriciana. Two of the others ordered pasta with... More

We were tipped off by the guy at the front desk to go to this place when we said we wanted Italian food but we where kind of disappointed. I ordered pasta with bacon and my gf pizza but it was not what we anticipated. The pasta had almost no bacon, the portion was very small and it tasted of... More

My napolitan friend told me about this place and I decided to try it. Unfortunatelly It wasn´t a nice experience. About the food I didn t notice any special taste at least what I could eat. The manager or owner, I don t know, was very rude since we arrived. They don´t have menu so this manager started to talk... More

Staying in Esquilino

Neighbourhood Profile
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 vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic centre. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
