I visited Taverna Angelica for my birthday meal with my fiance. The waiter was friendly and spoke perfect English. There were so many great food options on the menu that it was difficult to choose. I had the radicchio and walnut pastries in fondue sauce to start followed by tuna with pistachio and orange sauce. The latter was superb and... More

Had dinner about 7 pm on a Tuesday. Ordered appetizer of chickpea lasagne, risotto with beet root, pasta with shrimps and pesto, cheese platter for 2 and wine. The waiter explained all the food we ordered, even the different cheeses. He was very attentive and detailed. After a long day at the Vatican, a nice meal in an excellent setting... More

We ate a lot of great food in Rome, but this was probably one of the best dining experiences. Extremely nice, helpful staff and a beautiful setting. We both opted for one of the tasting menus and couldn't have been more pleased. Also enjoyed a great bottle of wine that came highly recommended and did not disappoint. Definitely would eat... More

My group of eight had a delightful meal at Taverna Angelica. The food and service were both excellent. The atmosphere is lovely. It was an added bonus to be waited on by Doug, who is a native of Florida, and his beautiful Roman wife. Of all the restaurants we dined in Rome, this was by far my favorite. I highly... More

This was the best food and service I experienced in my three week trip around Italy. The maltagliati pasta dish was amazing. My second dish of millefeuille of sea bream with mozzarella also outstanding. This is a place not to miss!

Staying in Vatican / Borgo

Neighborhood Profile
Vatican / Borgo
Frocked priests, colorful Swiss Guards, insistent souvenir shop owners, flag-waving tour guides, and pilgrims from around the world. This is the Vatican and Borgo, Rome's most recognized neighborhood which acts as Vatican City's front yard. Aside from the souvenir boutiques and a few food spots, the only business conducted here is papal. In the daytime, the tiny medieval sector bustles with holy activity, as visitors vie for elbow room, or stand in line for a visit. Once the sun sets, the neighborhood is transformed into a quiet and picturesque hamlet.
