Tortellini was just right. Spaghetti carbonara needed a little more crime and the spaghetti and mussels and clams are fresh not mushy. Had the Rosario lazuli and it was splendid with ice though.

This was our worst reataurant experience in Rome. The owner/manager was rude, screamed at his staff, bumped into people, and clearly expressed his dislike and irritation. The poor staff that worked there did their best but were poorly treated in front of guests.

The only plus, from my point of view, is related on prices: a tavern with reasonable prices very close to the Vatican. The staff (2 people + owner) is very friendly but noisy (Italian style :). The menu is not very varied but the food...More

We had board specials of spaghetti and lasagne and both were excellent. We sat outside and the service was very good. Great place to eat after 4+ hours in the Vatican City.

We called in for lunch what a mistake it was. The guy serving appeared to enjoy shouting orders across the restaurant, that's when he wasn't stood in the doorway smoking. Food very poor and expensive. Ordered a plain villa ice cream but the waitress brought...More

A great coffee stop near the Vatican museum. Our waitress and the staff we met were all charming. We only had drinks so I can't comment on the food

We ordered directly fromy the menu rather than the cheap package deal, which may explain why we quite liked the place(in contrast with many other reviews). My wife enjoyed her pasta and I had a great pizza, both freshly made and tasty. The wait staff...More

Horrible! Pizza's are thin and tasteless. Ingredients are poor and definetely not fresh. There's hardly any topping to be found on the pizza. They obviously don't rely on repeating customers! Came hungry, left hungry... :(

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
