Great food and treat you like family..... all at a reasonable price!

We took our daughter to rome in January and we stumbled across this restaurant and we are very glad we did! Mamma and the family welcomed us openly and even treated us like family. We had pasta and wine which was exceptional both in quality and value. There was a birthday party in as well and we... read more

If you are on vacation in Rome you will likely visit the Vatican Museums. After you visit the Vatican Museums, I highly recommend that you stop at this restaurant before you head to line up to access the Basilica of San Pietro (the line is usually very long and you don't want to be starving while in the queue, right?)....

We went here after an exhausting tour of the Vatican, and were absolutely thrilled by it. The owner greeted us like long lost friends, and joked and chatted as we went to our table. The food was great, varied, and fantastic value: pretty much everything on the menu, was around the 7€ mark. The half-litre carafe of house red was... More

Me and my husband found this place tucked in one street behind the main row of restaurants across the entrance to the Sistine Chapel. It was still early for an Italian lunch, so relatively quiet. The owners were very very friendly. I have travelled across Italy many times, including Trentino, Veneto, Tuscany, Rome and Naples and genuinely this was the... More

After walking all day, we decided to find someplace close to the Vatican to eat lunch (a late one) and happen upon Ristorante dei Musei Vaticani. We couldn't find the entrance and they were laughing as we walked around the corner - but then came to find us and welcomed us in. We had lasagna, carbonara and a large water.... More

its located in the courtyard of the vatican and gives a good view of the place along with a refreshing drink and their lunch menu. Also it is reasonably priced

We made the mistake of not checking prices first, we just went to the counter and ordered 4 slices of pizza, a cheese sandwich, 2 bottles of water and half a bottle of wine....we had to eat them quick as we had just popped in for half an hour before our tour started, we nearly fell off our seat when...

This restaraunt is literally next to the steps leading to the Vatican and main spot for tour meet ups, so prices are very expensive... 4 euros for half a glass of juice for example. We ordered breakfast - the toast was two pieces of bread with cheese, ham and mayo in (not at all toasted) the croissant was hard and... More

We stopped off at this cafeteria on our tour of the Vatican. It was a warm day and we were pretty exhausted after some hours of walking. We got an iced coffee which was good. The only problem was there is no seating in this place. A seat would have been so welcome. We had a filled flat bread which... More
