Many restaurants in Rome are tourist grade and the restaurants on Borgo Pio are no exception. Situated near Saint Peter's Square, Borgo Pio is teeming with restaurants and souvenir shops. I was skeptical about eating on this street until I met the owner of Arlu. I decided to give it a try. Everything about Arlu was excellent and authentic Italian. Pasta's were homemade, great selection of dishes and of wines, portions were generous, staff was attentive and friendly, and exceptionally clean surroundings and bathroom. We were given a complimentary appetizer although we already ordered several. Don't skip dessert, the millefoglio was delicious. If Arlu was near my hotel I would have eaten there every day. This restaurant is a must on the day you are near the Vatican.
