Treat yourself to this wonderful trattoria. The pasta is perfectly cooked, the wine selection is varied and reasonably priced. This is a busy place so relax and take your time, enjoy the mussels, the mixed bruschetta, or the fresh caprese. The servings are ample, well...More

Just Ok. Disappointed they wouldn't make me a simple spaghetti with garlic and olive oil. Ate there once and they graciously did which is why I went back but next time the waiter and his manager were highly uncooperative.

We had dinner here since it was close to our hotel and it had great reviews on Google. And it was great! The food was just perfect and also the prices were good. We even had lunch a few days later.

Excellent spot. We had the feeling that the restaurants in Rome were geared heavily toward tourist-- trying for the quick rip-off. Not this spot. Excellent food and great service. We were hungry and tired of looking so we went back two nights in a row!...More

We went to Mamma Angela's because it was rated highly and near our hotel. I don't know why it's rated highly. Our food was warm and appeared to have sat under a heat lamp before getting to us. Spaghetti Carbonara was not hot and sauce...More

I'm not sure why so many restaurants in Italy get such high ratings on TripAdvisor. Just about any run-of-the-mill trattoria or pizza shop seems to score at least a 4. Perhaps it's that most North American tourists romantacize the Italian dining experience and are too...More

Just around the corner from our hotel, 300m from Roma Termini. Friendly staff, attentive but not obtrusive. Loved the stuffed mushrooms, crab & zucchini and slow cooked shoulder of pork served with chickory. My friend had a lovely Amatriciana pasta & very tender lamb cutlets...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,
Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot
