This is a very nice jewel among all the tourist pizzarias. Great organic food, freshly made by two very friendly staff. We got very tasty sandwiches for a fairly cheap price. The only small drawback is that the place is very small. This is a must visit for lunch when you are visiting the Vatican museum or the Cathedral.

An ideal place for a spot of lunch near the Vatican museums away from the tourist traps. The food is freshly made to order, ingredients delicious, reasonably priced and a refreshing change from pizza and panini. The guys who work there are really friendly and helpful. A shame the shop isn't a bit bigger to accommodate more seating. Highly recommend.

Excellent spot to grab sandwiches/salads/wraps and fresh juice made in house. After eating pizza and pasta for a week I was craving something a bit lighter and this place hit the spot. Ingredients for your salad/sandwich are cut up right in front of you - so fresh and delicious. Finally, the two men working at the shop are so friendly... More

This morning we visited Fa-bio. The plan was to go to the Vatican so we looked on TA for a nice place to get some breakfast. Fa-bio popped up and this was again a great tip! The guys who own the place regretted that they did not yet had the bread in the shop but the could do something with... More

This cute little place is just about 2 minutes from the entrance to the Vatican Museum/Sistine Chapel. We were so delighted to find the expansive selection of things like freshly juiced juices, smoothies, veggie sandwiches and wraps..our family ordered some of everything. And for some things we reordered as the first was so good. Unlike many places in Italy they... More

Realising that once you enter the Vatican you cannot re-enter on the same ticket, my friends and I decided to grab lunch on our way in. Located just off the main street to the Vatican, Fa-bio is a great little place to grab a good salad or sandwich. With a great range of salads/ingredients (particularly good for vegetarians or the...

We had two lunches at this tiny restaurant that is located 5 min from St. Peter's Square. The place offers fresh salads, sandwiches , soup and juice that are not only local but also organic. There is no much place to sit, so is you want a take- out they will prepare you a nice package with the food. So... More
