Not bad

This place is located at the nice neighbourhood. The prices are average; they bring the food pretty quickly and it takes much more time to bring the check. The food is not remarkable. You can stop here if you don't have other options

Came across this place near the Vatican and, even though the restaurant got quite busy, had a very relaxing lunch of Mussels in a delicious sauce and Pasta. Service was very good and the place seemed well run and had a good ambience.

I have heard from many that this place has the BEST carbonara dishes and it is true! You cannot go wrong eating here! I won't try any pasta carbonara dishes at other places because I will be disappointed. There's outdoor dining also. It is truly delicious food!

While many others have mentioned it, the service at Mozzicone certainly leaves something to be desired. That being said, it remains one of my favorite restaurants in Rome. I love cacio e pepe and try it almost everywhere I go, and so far Mozzicone makes the BEST cacio e pepe I've ever had! I almost ordered a second plate of... More

Generous portions at affordable prices. The pasta plates are big enough to feed a hungry adult. Service was ok, the waiter explained well the difference in sorts of pastas and sauces. Good experience all in all.

It was nice place to have dinner outside. Although in many comments people did not like the old guys, they were friendly to our daughter.

Local food made to a high standard. Yes the two older gentlemen were a bit grumpy but not unpleasant and made concessions to our orders; Tables put together to accommodate our family of 8 and split orders of pizza. Not overly priced and plates warmed to hold the heat outdoors. Try the swordfish !

The area around Mozzicone has really changed in the last couple of years, and gone upmarket. Where once this was the dingy and iffy end of the streets leading away from the Vatican, very different from the touristy areas at the other end, now it's really up-and-coming. But Mozzicone remains largely unchanged, and still stays true to its 1970s decor... More

Staying in Vatican / Borgo

Neighborhood 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 neighborhood 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 neighborhood is transformed into a quiet and picturesque hamlet.
