Pop in! We’re Open!

After months of hard work, we finally *officially* opened our doors on Thursday, November 18, 2021. The line out the door waiting for the moment was just testament to how much Rome’s Esquilino neighborhood has evolved in the last few years and how much the community is looking forward to new and exciting things to open.


We’re located at via Giusti 18 – 00185 Roma, just around the corner from the newly renovated Piazza Dante and steps from Piazza Vittorio.

Our dining room, designed by Rome-based, all-female Dispensabile Studio, is meant to be a retreat from the bustling urban life outside. Iconic Nordic designs decorate the space, from the large paper lanterns and wooden tables and chairs, to the ceramic and glass tableware. The minimal white walls contrast with the bordeaux-colored bench that runs the entire length of the dining room. Natural light pours into the space all year round through the over-sized windows and entry, creating elegant, playful shadows that animate the space.

Operating Hours

Visit us Monday to Saturday from 8,30 – 18 (until 15,30 on Saturdays).

Breakfast & Lunch

Each day Sergio and Andrea fill the counter and shelves with their naturally leavened breads, buns, pizza and pastries. Enjoy a traditional Italian breakfast of house-made croissants, pain au chocolat, and other sweet pastries with espresso roasted in Rome by our friends at Faro. We also offer a small menu of simple breakfast items, like housemade buns with butter and jam or cheese and prosciutto, and a soft-boiled egg.

As the day toils on, the counter changes to reflect more lunch appropriate offerings, like a daily quiche, baguette sandwiches, and savory pies. We offer organic sodas and juices to accompany your lunch, or take a look at our natural wine list.
