Cozy tiny cafe with delicious pastry. Loved the decoration inside and the stuff was very friendly. Got some biscotti as a gift for a friend at home. Able to pay with card. Would come back.

The flavours are all genuine and the service is great. It's a cosy place where you can taste one of the best gelatos in Rome. Don't miss to try their "Hedera" flavour!

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
