A hidden gem a few hundred meters from St. Peter’s square. The pasta was delicious! We ordered the carbonara and the amatricana - both were excellent especially considering the price of €6 per serving.

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
