If you're staying near the Vatican, eat here

My wife and I ate here three or four times over a two-week period, and the food was really terrific. I now understand why bruschetta exists (it's absurdly overdone American cousin has never been a favorite of mine). I had pasta -- a porcini pasta once and cacio e pepe twice -- but their pizzas are... read more

Rice balls, Shrimp and tomato pasta and mushroom pizza were all quite nice and affordable. As good as any place, very fresh, tasty and filling. The service was a bit slow however. After we had finished eating it took a very long time to pay and leave, even after repeated attempts but a bit of perseverance got it there. Average... More

We swore after our first night in Rome that we wouldn't ever again go to a restaurant where they are beckoning you in. Well, the problem is that that is virtually impossible when your apartment is near the Vatican. Four of us enjoyed a very nice above par meal with goid house wine. Woukd definitely recommend.

We enjoyed this place so much we ate here two nights in a row. I felt like I was eating in an authentic Italian restaurant as we were greeted by Vito, unlike the many commercialised restaurants you see around Rome! The food is good (highly recommend the lasagne and chocolate mousse) and also reasonable prices. The staff work extremely hard.... More

We stumbled upon this place before heading to the Vatican. The host was extremely nice as he ushered us in and showed up his impressive LA times review :) We had pizza, lasagna, and ravioli -- all of which were supremely delicious! The ingredients tasted so fresh and the lasagna seemed to melt in your mouth! Very reasonably priced as... More

We were mid way through our sight seeing of the Vatican City and needed a big lunch and rest. Following reviews, we sought out da vito e dina and were welcomed by a chef who we later found out to be Vito the owner. We took the last free table outside and ordered beers and wine swiftly. We had a... More

Vito greets everyone who passes the restaurant, and if he seem's excited to get you to sit down, it is because he would love to make you happy with some good food! I felt like I was being greeted by a member of the family I hadn't seen in a while. I was staying in a nearby apartment, and had... More

Just around the corner from our B&B on rainy evening - so nice surprise! Full of people, mostly italians, but they found us a table. Food was very good, had to wait for a while, but it didn't matter - it was nice to follow the life around.

we were warmly met by the wanna be mafioso and were pleasantly surprised by the food. pizza was good, so were the pasta and saltimbocca. we dont drink much so the 1/2 carafe of the house red was just right. bread was nicely grilled only upon request. nice enough neighborly osteria tho the staff speak very little english.

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.
