We found this out-of-the-way restaurant on the recommendation of our Vatican tour guide, Ivana. It is near the Pope's favorite gelato place, Hedera Gelato. Once inside, we were quickly seated and a gregarious waiter, David, came over and began to charm us. In fact, he was charming to all his customers. He spoke multiple languages, including English. He was kind... More

After wandering around the Vatican, I realised I needed to eat. Walked by this restaurant and thought I'd give it a go. Despite it being full, the lovely staff soon found a place for me upstairs. This gave me the opportunity to experience Italian family life first hand as there was a large family group also dining upstairs. Lovely to... More

Wandered past it on a Saturday afternoon. Went in and were professionally ignored by two staff members for a few minutes. We're shown to the back, and informed by our surly waiter that 'No pizzas at lunch.' He eventually deigned to return and take our order, then sauntered off. Some time later, my drink arrived, then about 5 minutes later,... More

We stumbled upon this place after a long morning at the Vatican and it was delicious! I had an amazing carbonara and scallopini. The tiramisu wasn't the best I've had but it was good. It did take us a very long time to get the bill and after we handed him the card he talked with another employee for quite... More

We went there following recommendation from the owner of hotel we were staying in. Shame that we only went there once on our last day of holiday in Rome and Vatican City... but at least we now know where to eat during our next stay. Pizzas were absolutely amazing and they had great selection of pasta too. Good wine and... More

This was the best restaurant find of our trip to Rome. Food was outstanding and served hot. Service was excellent and timely. Great pizza and Roma artichokes. Very refreshing after a long day in the Vatican.

Saltimbocca was amazing. Service a bit slow but very charming waiter, also restaurant was packed and it was late, it was so pretty upstairs in the open air that we didn't mind. Wasn't sure about baccala but pasta very good.

Found this restaurant walking back to our hotel after hard morning visiting the Vatican etc. with my mum who is 75 and kids 7 and 10. Menu sounded great and reasonably priced. (And in English!) but did not seem like a tourist restaurant. Walked in and the manager showed us a table at the back right next to the busy... 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.
