We ate perfect food- risotto, pasta, beautiful bread, delicious oil, grilled vegetables, carciofi. Everything done to perfection, inexpensive, friendly, delicious, simple but excellent as the name. Unbeatable.

Absolutely loved this ristorante! It's located in the "Borgo" neighborhood...not to far from the Vatican...but you really have to search to find it...BUT, it's worth the search!

I joined a Roman friend for lunch here. Few tourists, fine service and good sized portions. Fresh and tasty. I'd recommend. Not too far from the Vatican Museum.

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 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
