Terrible pizza, added 1euro to the price of everything, and didn't want to give us change. Avoid at all costs!!!

Nonna acts all innocent, but is a shrewd business woman underneath. Food is ok, nothing to write home about, but stay away cause she will rip you off with the prices.

First of all the smell. This hole smells like expired oil and cheapest vinegar, and it smells hard. Not wine, not fried garlic or bolognese - expired oil and vinegar. And when it taste the dishes - they don't disappoint you: it still is something expired and sour. The worst food I tasted in my entire life, seriously. I ran... More

We lovingly call this place "mama's" because the lady running it seems like an Italian"Mama". She barks out orders, is a little gruff and doesn't speak English. You have to know how to order, and just go with it. You are asked "pizza or pasta?" "ensalata?" "vino or birra?". I recommend you go with the pasta, the salad and wine.... More

I have to say this restaurant was no the best, but the lady in charge really had us having a great time. She had the weirdest attitude, and nearly forced us to order food, which we found funny. The food was ok, not the best, but would recommend, and defiantly will come back, Just watch out for the price!

Incredibly rude old service. Food is terrible and over priced. A tourist trap! Do not go there. You will be disgusted by the service. A disaster in every sense of the word!

Had an early 6.30pm meal with my wife following a day at the Vatican. Dropped in for Pizza and a couple of beers and ended up having pasta too! Both were really nice - I must disagree with the previous posts about frozen pizza; I mean, really??? The pizza was lovely and FRESH!! Not the best and not the biggest... More

They are screwing the tourists. Charged bread (which we didn't asked for) and table covers (???). Pushing for ordering more till they became annoying. Bad food also and over priced. Tourists stay away!

Staying in Vatican / Borgo

Neighbourhood Profile
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 visitors vie for elbow room, or stand in line for a visit. Once the sun sets, the neighbourhood is transformed into a quiet and picturesque hamlet.
