We found this restaurant by chance after a full day of sights in the beautiful city of Rome, no reservation, they sat us outside, under the Roman sky. We had an appetizer that consisted of fresh chopped tomatoes, cooked potatoes dices, chopped octopus, fresh parsley, delizioso! The entre was farfalle with a basil and parsley creamy light sauce that would... More

We arrived in Rome and we were extremely hungry. We walked the streets and came upon this restaurant (if you can even call it that). Our hosts warned us about places close to the Vatican - we should have took their advice. We experienced our first tourist trap in Rome, and it only took 30 minutes. The food was terrible.... More

A little non-pretentious trattetoria, 5 minutes walk from the Vatican. Highly receommended for a pizza lunch before going to St. Peter's Square or jumping on the city-tour busses (bus stops 3 minutes walk away).

located a short distance from the Vatican but just off the main tourist thoroughfare to avoid rip off prices, this gem of a small restaurant offering wonderful fresh Italian food. I enjoyed a really great spaghetti Bolognese and my wife the fresh ravioli followed by Gelato. A bottle of wine - all for €56,10 One of the best Italian meals... More

Not far from St Peters square we found this place right next to another Pizza restaurant, we chose this because it was a hot day and they had cool water spray coming from the canopy which was a nice touch. I ordered the buffalo mozzarella with cherry tomatoes, when it came up I looked at it and realized that there... More

This is one of the famous tourist trap restaurants. We stopped to eat in this place only because we couldn't find the actual restaurant we planned to eat in before leaving to Rome. Moreover we had a booked tour at Castle Sant'Angelo so we had not many options. Portions are very small, average quality food and high prices compared to... More

We were headed to another restaurant, but it was pouring so we ducked in here. What a mistake!Can you say Chef Boyardee? The spaghetti bolognese was probably the worse I've ever tasted. The spaghetti was over-cooked, it tasted like tomato sauce from a can, and the meat was non-existent. We also ordered a pizza which was okay, but nothing spectacular.... More

The waiters Loga and Sergio gave excellent service, good location we managed to sit outside and watch the world go by. Average price for the area, so many good restaurants tho, it's always difficult to... More

This is a lovely restaurant right down Vatican City. It has a warm atmosphere inside and you can also seat outside and enjoy the fresh air of this beautiful city. Our waitress was one of the nicest peolple we met in Rome, very professional and so natural at the same time. We dined twice at this place because we loved... More

Had pizza here on our first evening in Rome last year. It was within a few minutes walk of where we were staying. Pizza was very good and quite reasonably priced. Would be happy to eat here again if I was looking for somewhere close to St. Peter's and didn't have a reservation.
