It's a little cosy restaurant with great character settled in a small basement. Great, friendly and fast service. Me and my girlfriend ate the pechuga de pollo and pechuga y chorizo. Both were huge portions with very soft, juicy, grilled chicken. 1 drink, main course each and one dessert (which was huge, enough for 2 people). For the price of... More

If you want to, for some reason try out Peruvian cuisine in Italy, do visit this restaurant. It is located in the basement of a building and has warm settings. The ambiance is ok . The food is great and spicy , specially with sauces they serve alongside. The helpings too are sumptuous.

The restaurant was a short walk from our hotel and chosen due to good reviews on another site. Never having eaten any Peruvian food, we were not sure what to expect. The restaurant was fairly busy, with what appeared to be South American ex-pats. We had with us two teenagers who can be picky eaters, but both found items on... More

I came here twice. The first time was around 6pm to try some delicious rotisserie chicken. Unfortunately after my 45 minute walk to the restaurant and waiting several minutes to get a menu. The waiter tells me they sold out of chicken and a new batch won't be out for over an hour. Since we were hungry we ordered other... More

A nice restaurant, close to the city center and easily accessible by underground (stop Castro Pretorio). The ambiance and the services are really nice. The food is typically Peruvian. A lot of good options. As a starter, try the "fried mandioca". Really good. Nice pisco drinks too. A must go place in Rome.

The staff was very friendly, went out of their way (especially as I am a solo female traveler with limited Spanish or Italian language skills.) wide array of menu choices. However, they were out of pisco sour and my beef was really overcooked, very hard to chew and I ended up giving up. Everything else on the plate was delicious... More

I visited this joint with an Italian girl i met the year previously in Peru. We were there on New Years Eve and partook of their special set dinner they had prepared for that night which included ceviche, white wine and Pisco Sours. Food was ok, wine was vinegar, Pisco Sours were excellent.

I visited Inka Chicken on 9/4/2015 with my family, 5 people in total. When we arrived there was no more than 3 tables being used yet we still waited about 10 minutes to be seated. When we finally got a table we were put in a corner where it was extremely hot and the air did not reach. I asked... More

Staying in Esquilino

Neighbourhood Profile
Esquilino
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.
