We had 2 great sandwiches. Went here on recommendation for a great place to eat at sensible prices. Great friendly staff and good English. Sadly we weren’t able to go back again.

Fresh caprese salad, but the flavour was plain. Hard to find mozarella and tomatoes, too much lettuce. Not what I was looking for. The plus: only few minutes to wait for a salad. Really kind staff.

We recently went to Fa-bio for a quick lunch while heading back from Vatican. The service was wonderful and staff were helpful in choosing a meal. Were able to make both vegan and gluten free. Portions are good and we sat outside on the patio.

Near but away from the chaotic Vaticane City. A beautiful surprise of quality. Biological and genuine taste. Simple plates but fruit and vegetables inside. Very good centrifugate. Cost in line with Rome but equal for what you can eat. A place to sign in your...More

We went here after a trip to the Vatican (it is a few minutes away) and it was amazing for a healthy, delicious lunch. The staff were incredibly knowledgeable about allergies and so helpful, plus the food was delicious!

Just steps away from the chaos of the centre, Prati is
the closest Rome gets to calm. Meticulously planned in
a neat grid, quite unlike neighbouring Borgo, Prati is
a local favourite for its aesthetic organisation and
wide streets lined with a range of boutiques for every
shopping fantasy. Nonnis pushing baby carriages and
gossiping teens own every inch of the sidewalk, but
that’s only during business hours. Once the sun sets,
