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

This little ostaria is in the middle of the very touristic area of the vatican., so most of the custumers are tourists. So are you. This being said: it is a charming place. The terrace is nice. The service is nononsense, btu if you are friendly and order in Italian they melt away. The food is good, fresh homemade. The... More

I agree with other reviews saying that the service is bad!!!! It is awful!! I have never been in a restaurant where there has been service as bad. We asked for a table for our group but were bluntly told 'No!'. We stupidly split up, some going to nearby restaurants (I wish I had been one of them!!) Five of... More

I've been there just yesterday with my family and was not disappointed - well, not too much. We had decent food (in an otherwise extremely touristy area where food tends to be on the lousy side), even though the supplì were way overpriced (€ 2,50 a piece!) and the bucatini all'amatriciana were too heavy... The pizza was decent but don't... More

We weren't sure the restaurant was open when we turned up at 7 (despite the advertised opening hours) as it seemed very quiet. It turned out that is because because the locals eat much later and sometimes a restaurant which looks deserted will actually be fully booked. This was the case here. There was space at the outside tables (very... More

Found this place completely by chance one lunchtime. Sat outside and service was good and friendly. Pizza was some of the best we've eaten toppings were tasty and the base was crisp and melted in the mouth.

Recommended by a friend whose family is from Rome. Minutes from St Peters Square (Vatican) amid lots of tourist restaurants (so pizza & coke) is an unassuming restaurant whose exterior belies its high standard of authentic Roman cuisine. Menus in Italian & English, small tables for 2/4 or combined tables for groups. Everthing is cooked fresh. We ate dinner many... More

We enjoyed a lovely meal here in July, so returned hoping for a repeat. It wasn't to be. In the summer, the 2 male waiters were so kind and well-mannered and really added to our experience. When I visited with my family in October, we were excited to be back and looking forward to a lovely meal. As we looked... More

Often stop here while in Rome. The service can be a bit slow, but typical Rome! Love the carbonnara, pizza, the out door dining
