Ristorante Papa Rex is as good inside as it looks through the windows
Looking for a late lunch spot on a Friday afternoon in Rome is not exactly difficult but finding somewhere that offers good food and fair value can be a little more of a challenge when you are hoping for crisp white tablecloths and a little ambiance.
For us Restorante Papa Rex on the busy Via Aurelia met all our needs. It’s a short walk from St. Peter’s Square and we were told it can be busy, but was just comfortably active on this, our first visit.
Our meal started with a fresh green salad and both my partner and I commented on the dressing . . . so good. We followed that with a delicious lasagne and coffee. The house red was a surprise and a good one too. Excellent value.
Washrooms are on the lower level.
Thank you very much for your visit!
My husband and I dined at this lovely restaurant 10/12/17, our last night of a 4 day visit to Rome. The pasta and the fish we selected for dinner were very well prepared & delicious.
Service was average- we definitely had more attentive waiters at other restaurants in Rome.
We enjoyed an amazing lemon cake dessert / it was light, airy and HEAVENLY! Yes, we would def eat here again!
Found papa rex near our hotel on the 2nd night of a 4 night break . Sat outside on both the nights we ate there ,on both nights the service was excellent and the food was very good . Had scampi on the first night and my wife had salmon ,the food was first rate ,on the 2nd night I had ravioli and my wife had steak ,the ravioli was delicious and my wife enjoyed her meal as well . Both nights were finished with tiramisu which was amazing . The staff were first rate and very attentive without being over bearing . Would certainly recommend papa rex ,great place and great staff.
