Came here based on the TA reviews and it did not disappoint. It's especially great if you're looking for healthy eats after all the pizza and pasta we've been eating.

Owners / staff were excellent and spoke English. Really helped us to understand the menu, what they had for different sandwiches and salads, and even let us customize. Even gave us a better juice recommendation since oranges were out of season (banana, apple, brown sugar, and ginger).

The food was amazing. We had the turkey sandwich and a salad with mixed greens, artichokes, pumpkin seeds, olive oil, and balsamic. They've also got quinoa salads, pasta salads, cous cous, etc.

Be warned, that's its crammed inside with only 5 bar seats, and a row of people trying to order, pay, come in and out. Best to do takeaway and find a park bench or curb.

....except space! A tiny sandwich shop offering the best service and choice of food for everyone. You choose and they'll do it. Vegan, vegetarian and any allergies catered for. Service is second to none. Go there. Amazing!

All of the staff spoke English and were very friendly. I ordered a tuna and avocado sandwich alongside a banana, yogurt, and brown sugar smoothie. The staff gave me the extra remaining smoothie left in the blender once I was done! Very kind of them.

We visited Fa-bio after visiting the Vatican. We had delicious tofu wraps and a fresh apple, peach and ginger juice. Really tasty food, great service, good price. Recommended!

Visited on a Monday afternoon on our way back from the Vatican. Chosen due to recommendation in our guidebook.

We do not speak Italian and initially I got a little flustered in trying to work out the menu whilst we were queuing outside, but once inside the very friendly guy who attended to us explained the menu and translated various menu items for me (a great relief!!).

You will have to queue....it is a tiny shop and the locals flock here at lunchtime. There are a few pre-made options on the counter but largely everything is made from scratch while you wait. They also had an extensive smoothie menu but we did not try them. Our sandwiches were really nice and the ingredients were fresh and tasty.

Great for a quick bite to eat!

Recommended.
