A small trattoria known for its Roman classics, including an exceptional carbonara, in the multicultural Esquilino neighborhood.

Trattoria Da Danilo’s carbonara is considered one of the best in the city because it is topped with perfectly crisped bacon instead of only guanciale (a cured pork jowl). Located just off the highest of Rome’s seven hills, the Esquilino restaurant is popular with locals because it lies outside of the most heavily trafficked parts of the city. The cozy trattoria serves fantastic pastas, all of which can be paired with one of the more than 200 bottles off the impressive wine list.

Time Out tip: Carbonara is the signature dish at this restaurant, but for a tableside show its best to order the cacio e pepe which is quickly prepared on a small cart before being served piping hot.
