We ate outside and well. Our Italian was, ashamedly, not up to making ourselves perfectly understood, and nor was their English, which seemed to upset our waitress. Steak Tartare was good, although seasoning needed to be requested, rather than offered. My chicken was a little...More

Small place with really good food and service. Try the sausage, it was the best sausage i've ever had. They serve snacks from the meat chark for starters and have their own olive oil and balsamico. Bella!

My husband and I passed this restaurant earlier in the day while walking to our hotel. It stood out as not trying to appeal to tourists, but looked authentic and patronized by locals. We were welcomed by a friendly staff, without a reservation on a...More

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
