The bar tenant/owner, Antonella, is very kind and proposes a wide range of drinks, panini/sandwiches and salads (all prepared by herself). With tourists, she is always kind to help and she speaks well English Enjoy its tiny terrasse on this peaceful street

Beer was fresh and clear good taste, prosecco for the girls was a good glass full. Staff were friendly and chatty, bar was clean. We did not have any food so can't comment on that but will be back for another drink.

Used to go to this place every year for the Pizza. It is not fast service- even when the tables r empty. Pizza is good. Husband gets their pasta w/ bolognese sauce &likes it.the pizza tasted "off" and servers r SLOW.

Loved the mozzarella and tomato panino--toasted to perfection. And, the caffé americano was good, too! I will definitely be coming back.

Positive is that its close to the Vatican and free wifi. Although wifi was slow and quite sporadic. Now the food. My tagliatelle was half frozen / uncooked, with the tiniest amount of minced meat accompanying it. Nothing like the photo in the menu. Do...More

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 neighbourhood 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
