Easily one of the best meals of my life. My wife and I were in Rome for our honeymoon, and in the eternal city, with St. Peter's Basilica, the Vatican Museums, Roman ruins, gorgeous churches, Taverna Angelica was still a high point. Seriously, we actually got to shake hands with Pope Francis, and Taverna Angelica was still a high point.... More

It was our first night in Rome and we went to this restaurant based on its great reviews. When we arrived we were greeted at the door and seated right away. It was late Thursday night so the restaurant was not very crowded. We were given a complementary glass of champagne and offered a taste of a quiche. We ordered... More

I knew that we were in the right place right off the bat when we were greeted with a big smile from the owner's husband who is an American. The service was fantastic from that point forward. I actually booked this restaurant in advance because of the reviews here and they were very quick to respond and to accomodate. The... More

Visites with our baby early evening. Very friendly staff and nice well presented food. Reasonably priced for what you get too, the pasta is recommended. Good find!

We tried the seafood salad, pistachio pesto pasta, bacon egg pasta, and chocolate layer cherry mouse cake. All were great, but the pistachio pesto was the best. The pasta was obviously freshly made, and all of the ingredients were delectable and wholesome. We had great conversation with our waiter, which is a little uncommon in Italy. Also, the recommended red... More

My daughter Googled "good restaurants near me" and this was our choice! So glad. In the Prati neighborhood near the Vatican, this small tucked-away spot had delicious food and attentive service. It was our last night in Roma and we wanted to celebrate. A good choice. Indoor dining only.

Very friendly staff with great food and wine recommendations! As a solo traveller it's sometimes hard to find a restaurant that knows how to truly cater for you but this place is the exception. Great service, amazing food (happy to cater for allergies too) and superb wine. I thoroughly recommend this place as a diamond in the rough amongst some... More

We stumbled upon Taverna Angelica after getting lost on our way back to our hotel. The décor is clean and modern. They could tell our group of 6 people were a little frazzled. They started us with complimentary Proseco and small portions of a frittata. The menu was in Italian and English. We started with Grilled shrimp, black rice, passion... More

Everything was so delicious. The service was attentive. They helped us pick out a wine to go with our meal. This was my favorite meal in Italy. The shrimp with pistachio pesto was delicious! If it wasn't our last night there we would have eaten there more than once!

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.
