Mariela was THE best, she added so much to our experience at this meal. We had a wide range of courses and food - DO NOT MISS THE SPAGHETTI WITH BACON or PUMPKIN BLOSSOMS WITH PRAWNS! This is authentic food delivered by a friendly and talented staff!

We didn't have a reservation but we're able to get a table. I think the restaurant may have been a little short on staffing because they didn't seem pleased we were there. The dinners were delicious - seafood, veal and pasta dishes. The appetizers-cheese dish and tempura fish and veggies were scrumptious. Wine was nice. Dinner takes awhile- apparently they... More

We researched where to go to celebrate our last night together as a family on our Rome visit. Trip Advisor rated Taverna Angelica highly and now so do we. As foodies the service, ambience and especially the quality of food is extremely important ant to us. Taverna Angelica prepares everything in house and is prepared with imagination and passion. We...

Only about three blocks from the Vatican, but a bit hard to find. Just get near it and ask any local for directions. We had dinner there our second night in Rome in late May 2015. The fresh fish was perfectly prepared and the appetizers side dishes great and the wine terrific. All was typical Italian which is what we... More

We had a hard time finding this place at the Piazza Amerigo Caponni, but we it was worth finding. The restaurant actually seems to be on Borgo Angelica, which is just below the level of the rest of the piazza, but once we found it, everything was excellent. All of the advice that our server gave was spot on. I... More

This is an excellent restaurant with very friendly staff and great service. The menu is phenomenal, everything has a great, artisanal touch and tastes simply delicious. It is a nice place to discover contemporary Italian kitchen after passing by the hundreds of boring, touristy restaurants in the Vatican area. We shared an appetizer plate and I still remember to the... More

This place is tucked away 5 mins from the Vatican but it is so worth searching it out. The prawn tartare on a bed of tomatoes and orange are still making my taste buds tingle and every pasta dish was superb. (4 of us went twice so tried a lot). The service and welcome were the stars of the restaurant... More

A nice restaurant with good service, good food and a friendly atmosphere. Where we often experience long waiting times for our food at other restaurants, the food was actually served too fast here..

My daughter and I were travelling around Italy on holiday from Australia and found this restaurant quite near our accommodation. I can honestly say it was the best food I have ever had....we went back twice, which was all we could manage in the time, but I will never forget the food and the service. The chef is a genius...

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.
