I thought the food was great, and was eating with an Italian from Bologna (Italians take their food seriously) especially this one...and he loved it! The owner was lovely, actually the whole family made you feel like family and so that makes it extra special! We stopped in for lunch after touring the Vatican. PIZZA IN ROME! A few mentioned...

When you're hungry you'll eat anything and that's what he Vatican had in mind for us to eat ;) Not expansive ! We had to get Diet Coke because Regular Coke was not cold !! Weird line!! Squeezed to the left and running for your life from the right ;)

Don't know about their other food, but their pizza was passable; obviously very little effort put into it.

Visited here on a very hot summer's day. Despite huge crowds, the small distance from the museums seemed to allow a more relaxed atmosphere. Food was good but nothing extraordinary. However, taking into account, prices, I give it a good score. Also, the service was exceptionally welcoming. They treated us well, kept us in a cool place, and looked after... More

We were extremely hungry, so we really wanted to eat, but still hesitated, because we know about tourist traps, but we were given a 20% sconto. But avoid if you can walk a few blocks away. The pizza was made from baking soda!

It was an amazing meal, followed by fresh fruit and espresso! Both pasta dishes were delicious and a fantastic location. Everyone was extremely friendly! Do not miss this gem!

Family owned, we had a preset menu for our Family lunch just before visiting the Vatican in the afternoon. The owners are a brother and sister duo who are customer friendly. The food and wine just overflowed with abundance for an exceptional Italian experience. Location is great, we sat outside. Simply beautiful.

We happened to walk into this restaurant for lunch on the way to Vatican City, and it turned out to be a good choice. The food was fresh and delicious, and the service was good. The best part of our meal was the dessert, the panna cotta was spectacular!
