If you're looking for somewhere to grab lunch after a morning shuffling around the Vatican, walk the extra block away from the tourist traps to the loft. We had a really great meat and cheese platter washed down with some tasty draft beer. The staff...More

Nice cozy place with the most amazing Porchettas in town. My wife loves the waffles and pacakes. My friends tried nearly every panini in the menu and were very pleased! Thumbs up!

Finding a proper location for breakfast is not so easy in Rome, in my opinion. The Loft is an excellent place to start your day! Staff is so friendly! Try the pancakes with fresh fruit! And the juices! Marvellous!

We had breakfast here after our visit to the Vatican Museums. I hear a second location will be opened in Amsterdam near my home. No, that’s just wishful thinking.

Vatican / Borgo
Frocked priests, colorful Swiss Guards, insistent
souvenir shop owners, flag-waving tour guides, and
pilgrims from around the world. This is the Vatican
and Borgo, Rome's most recognized neighbourhood which
acts as Vatican City's front yard. Aside from the
souvenir boutiques and a few food spots, the only
business conducted here is papal. In the daytime, the
tiny medieval sector bustles with holy activity, as

Very close to te Vatican museum, a typical Roman fast food. You can taste the traditional food of Rome like Porchetta, specialities from Italy like Prosciutto crudo San Daniele, buffalo mozzarella. You can drink draft beer or a glass of best Italian wine in a wonderful place for a small price.
