So fresh and so delish

We stopped here for a quick, take-away lunch before a Vatican museum tour. Note- they opened at 11am even though their website said 10:30am. My mom and I both ordered sandwiches. He cut up the ingredients and shaved the meats as he made the sandwiches. So fresh and all organic. The best sandwich I... read more

Visited for lunch after seeing the Vatican. We didn't have a clue what we wanted and the guy serving was brilliant, recommending two different sandwiches. Really flavoursome and packed out (no scrimping on fillings here!) Quite well priced too for the centre of Rome, as it is a 5 minute walk from the Vatican.

So it was a hot day and we really wanted some salad to atone for a recent gluten / gelato binge. Fabio's was perfect!! Five euros for a big bowl of fresh summer veg and whatever else you pick from the counter; I had tuna, mozzarella, capers, olives and a lot of oil. Two and a half euros more and... More

Fantastic! It was such a delight to find super healthy food in Rome. After carb-on-carb overload, Fa-bio offered a reasonably priced welcome reprieve. My husband and I each ordered a freshly made veggie & fruit juice, along with two scrumptious salads. The menu is in Italian and while I can usually get by, a lovely gentleman working there helped translate... More

This small little shop is a fantastic place to get smoothies, sandwiches and salads all made to order with fresh ingredients. If you are tired of all the pasta and pizza grab some food here and enjoy. It is yummy too. Highly recommended.

I stumbled upon this restaurant when I was looking for a healthy and affordable place to have lunch after my morning at my internship at the Vatican. The Vatican is FULL of tourist traps, so it wasn't easy to find a place like FaBio, but once I did...I was SOLD. The interns and I went once and we FELL IN... More

We had some sandwiches for lunch at Fa-bio after walking in & around the Vatican. The restaurant is small, with a few seats inside. I notice that most people tend to take out their food. The restaurant is open till 5 pm. The fact that so many people kept going in & out of the restaurant ordering food while we... More

My roommate and I came to Rome for the weekend, and we were directed to Fa-bio by our Vatican tour guide. He told us that he goes for lunch about four times a week, and I completely understand why! The sandwiches were fresh, flavorful, and filling. We also got fresh juice blends, and they were absolutely delicious! The staff were... More

After 5 hours of viewing the museums, we were glad to rest our feet at Fa-bio while we enjoyed freshly made juices and sandwiches. One was on gluten free bread but both were tasty! The price was also very fair. They also offer salads and hot soups (which we were unfortunately too late to try). They are a few minutes... More

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.
