I have searched for many years for a good/great restaurant near the Vatican and failed until now. Situated between the Ottaviano metro stop and St. Peter's Square it is a great place to stop whether visiting the Vatican or the Vatican museums The restaurant, located in a basement which makes the name is ironic (I have read the history), is welcoming and invites one in to eat and have a good time. The dark walls rise to slightly above the tables, covered by white tablecloths underneath and dark tablecloths on top, then switch to white which curve into the ceiling. There are many pictures and pizza blades on the walls to view while waiting. The staff was very helpful and sociable. The menu contained many choices, all of which can be made gluten free. The gluten free pizza was one of the best we had tasted anywhere. Everybody enjoyed their meal. We watched an apple torte being expertly made at a nearby table while we waited giving us a lunch and a pastry demonstration. I will be back the next time I visit the Vatican.
