Not too much dishes in The list (and that's good) but you can find all The famous pastas of roman cooking : carbonara, cacio e pepe, gricia and amatriciana. All are a taste worthy! Carbonara was The best I have ever tried; to follow many good meat from the grill and seafood. Big servings and very friendly staff.

Excellent pasta, perfectly cooked meat, friendly servers. We almost passed on it because there were no tables outside, but it had come highly recommended by our tour guide so we gave it a go--glad we did! The best pasta carbonara we had, and best pasta over all all week. The veal saltimbocca was just to die for, and the meatballs... More

If you visit the Vatican, it can be difficult to find a decent spot to eat. Ristochicco will take care of you. They have fresh homemade dishes with very large portions. 1. Spaghetti Carbonara - you have to get this. It's a spaghetti pasta with pancetta in an egg sauce. 2. Homemade Fettucine Boscaiola - The fresh Fettucine pasta is... More

Very small restaurant, the perfect place after Saint Peter Basilica visit. To share as starter a dish I would sugest a local cheese plate to share, simply the best way to begin. Be careful to do not over eat a before the carbonara spaghetti, it is served in the pan. The ammount is enough to feed a complete troop but... More

Our server was excessively rude. Italy isn't known for having kind servers, but ours at Ristochicco was especially aggressive. The food wasn't bad, but we all had a bad experience because of how we were treated. For what it's worth, this restaurant is also the wrong choice for vegetarians. Most of the pasta dishes come with a meat sauce, and... More

Myself and my husband arrived for our anniversary meal after seeing the high rating on TripAdvisor and it was in a nearby location. We had booked online and requested a table outside however when we arrived the table wasn't ready, this wasn't an issue for us as we were happy to walk the streets for 10 minutes. When we came...

Pasta here is absolutely delicious and the portions are huge! We tried the clam pasta (vongol), the mussel pasta, and the seafood pasta which were all really good! Prices were around 14 -19eur. Definitely worth a visit!!

Staying in Vatican / Borgo

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.
