We visited after a long day seeing the sights and weren't disappointed by the tasty food and warm ambience of the place. Disappointing to pay for bread delivered to our table without us asking for it but otherwise very good.

We went wandering to find dinner and took a side road and another side road. This place looked nice so we decided to try it. So glad we did. Service was top notch. Food was excellent. Got grilled beef. Roma artichoke. Salad. Roasted lamb. And tiramisu. Beef was cooked to perfection. I've never had an artichoke cooked like they served... More

My boyfriend and I visited this restaurant on recommendation of the person we were renting an apartment from. It is in a great location and from entering the restaurant you can see that are fully in control. The waiters never write anything down which I love!! The food was amazing, some of the best pasta we have eaten, but my... More

This really is a very good quality restaurant. I ordered dishes that I often order in other places, but was surprised by the standard of the cooking. Spaghetti with clams, grilled vegetables, panna cotta and crostata (jam tart), all excellent. The portions were decent, in fact quite generous. The pastry for the crostata was particularly well made. The restaurant itself... More

We had this restaurant recommended by the owner of our hotel. Ended up going on both nights! The first evening we needed to eat early so not many people were there to start with. It soon filled up with a good mix of locals (always a good indication) and tourists. The food was excellent, the service superb and the atmosphere... More

This hidden gem is located just off the Borgo Pio and only our hotel recommended it we wouldn't have found it. They say if you want to find a nice restaurant in Rome follow the priests and on each occasion we visited there were clergy dining. Given that it's not far from the Vatican and in a tourist district one... More

Good place to eat- not a tourist trap- mostly locals, friendly staff and close to the vatican! Normal priced, food was genuine not a must try, but worth it!

Our hotel recommended this place and it took a little finding in the backstreets but it was well worth it. Lovely ambience frequented by locals and priests and by 8pm every table was taken. The food was absolutely superb and it was without question the best meal of our holiday. A nice bonus was that the prices were surprisingly cheap... More

On a recent Rome trip found this great restaurant. Went every night. Made to feel so welcome each evening and staff could not have been more helpful. Look forward to a return visit.

The location is very close to St. Peter's Square and fairly easy to find from via S.Angelo. We decided to visit this restaurant upon a recommendation from a family we met while waiting for the papal audience. As they mentioned, the prices were fairly reasonable. They didn't open until noon, however, they let us wait until noon inside since it... More

Neighbourhood Profile
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 visitors vie for elbow room, or stand in line for a visit. Once the sun sets, the neighbourhood is transformed into a quiet and picturesque hamlet.
