Authentic atmosphere close to Vatican

Small restaurant close to Vatican city. Interior: Authentic setting with vintage car toys on every table. I felt like a kid again. Food: the complimentary soup appetiser was delicious, as well as the first course (gnocchi) and the fish. Great!

We came here for our last lunch in Rome and it did not disappoint. The service was friendly and the food was excellent. From the wine to the presentation of the food. Some of the best carbonara I have ever had! Great 25 Euro tasting menu for lunch ( starter, appetizer, pasta and dessert).

Two blocks from the movie theater sits this very warm restaurant. We made a reservation on a Friday night, our cab driver got lost and ended up getting us there 25 minutes late. I have no idea. They were very warm and friendly and escorted us to our table, no worries. Ate: Carciofi alla Romana - ORDER THIS! Pigeon -... More

The Pumpkin/Carrot soup appetiser was very nice to start with, followed by the traditional Roman Carbonara! Pasta was al dente and tasty, nothing like I've tasted before!

The carrot soup was fantastic. But the carbonara pasta was undercooked. Having eaten out in Italy at dozens and dozens of restaurants, this really needed just another thirty seconds of cooking. It killed the meal for me. Told the waitress. It still appeared on my bill. And we were charged for service. This is an expensive restaurant for Rome. At... More

The pretty restaurant in the tony Prati district looks inviting and the chef/owner, parading up and down the room in immaculate starched whites, seems to have a great rapport with regulars. We did not count among those, so our table was at the entrance door and had no white tablecloth like the other tables. Not a problem, we came for... More

L'Arcangelo was simply amazing. We were able to sample some of the best meals at this fantastic restaurant. Be sure to make a reservation in advance if you want a table because it is quite small. We did not have a reservation but were able to sit at the counter and receive excellent service. The chef brought us the dishes... More

Delicious roman gastronomy! The passionate owner serves his dishes with pride and he has the right to do so as all the dishes we received were fabulous! Service was good and the wine was great as well! Definitely a place I'd recommend!

We spent the morning visiting the Vatican Museums, then took a leisurely walk out to L'Arcangelo for lunch before returning to visit St Peter's Basilica. Lunch was a generous salad of bitter greens, followed by sin on a plate: gnocchi with butter, cheese and white pepper. The wine, a white Lazio, added caramel notes to the meal. Very, very good.

Staying in Prati

Neighborhood Profile
Prati
Just steps away from the chaos of the center, Prati is the closest Rome gets to calm. Meticulously planned in a neat grid, quite unlike neighboring Borgo, Prati is a local favorite for its aesthetic organization and wide streets lined with a range of boutiques for every shopping fantasy. Nonnis pushing baby carriages and gossiping teens own every inch of the sidewalk, but that’s only during business hours. Once the sun sets, quirky sidestreet bars celebrate aperitivo hour, those evening cocktails that help wash away the tensions of Roman life.
