They make a ton of hand sandwiches - which were very good. Very fresh and tasty. Easy spot to stop for lunch very near the Vatican.

This place is small but has the best sandwiches and such a friendly guy making them. Made on crusty white bread I had mine with prosciutto and fresh cheese. Heated in the oven. We shared a Peroni and just relaxed before our Vatican tour. Delicious!!!...More

This is such a great little spot right outside St. Peter's Square! The gentleman working the counter was incredibly gracious. Your meats are cut fresh, and the vegetarian sandwiches are delicious as well. A wonderful and quick lunch.
