My family and I had our Christmas dinner in Taverna Angelica and the experience was just so exquisite! The food was delicious!! The wine was divine and most of all, Mariella, her husband and everyone working there were so warm and friendly to us. I am definitely coming back to this place when we visit Italy once again. All the... More

My husband and I found this gem while wondering around Rome. The staff spoke English very well and were exceptionally friendly. Try the octopus...you won't regret it. Beautiful texture and taste. I had the veal wrapped in filo with herbs and a truffle sauce.... AmaZing!!

Taverna Angelica delivered on its promise of good food. Not the best we had in Italy on a two week trip, but good enough to enjoy the evening. The one thing that disappointed me was being charged 9 euro for one bottle of still water, which was probably tap water since it came in a water carafe rather than a... More

Dear sir, I would love to invite you to read your bill with attention. The price that you see, 9 euros, is a total price for bread and water for each person seated at your table. Your table was for 3 people, so 9 euros total.The water that we use is not tap water but treated and we let the... More

Fantastic wine and wonderful food. The only downside was the lack of customers. Such a great restaurant deserves to be packed not to be only sparsely populated.

After a number of indifferent meals I was concerned that I would not have a decent meal in Rome. Then luckily I came across a good review on google for this restaurant. The restaurant is in the Vatican area. It has a nice interior with quiet music in the background. The staff are all very friendly and willing to give... More

Omg: this is the best restaurant in our 2 weeks trip in Italy. Don't miss the maltagliati with pistachio and shrimps, and the grilled octopus with avocado cream. My husband had the veal in crust and it was to die for. 5 stars!!!

Good service but the food was really not good. The prawns (starter) lost al their flavor during the cooking, the rice was dry and not warm. The muffin with chickpeas (starter) wasn't tastefull either. And for the maincourse: a vegetarian meal musn't consist sausauges. Too bad, especially because we read so many good reviews.

Dear Sir, I think you have confused ideas: the shrimps were king prawns with riso venere (black rice) that we serve just warm because it is not a risotto but a side dish made with herbs and fresh lemon (it has to be not warm). The muffin is made with cheese and has nothing to do with the chickpeas. The... More

We (group of six, and group of four) ate there twice during out week in Rome. Every single dish was outstanding, from the antipasti (the shrimp with fried pasta!) to the pasta to the main dishes. Best choices were the lasagnetta with octopus, olives, and capers, the grilled octopus (so tender you'd never guess what it is), and the lamb... More

Brought the wrong meal, the pasta with pistachio pesto and shrimps were not good. The shrimps were cut but not peeled and not drained properly after cooking. The starter goose breast was ok.

Dear Olga, We are sorry if we brought you a wrong meal. Why you did not tell us? And I'm very shocked you did not like the most famous and popular pasta of our menú. The maltagliati with pistachio is an item that has never been taken off the menu because our costumers request. Next time we will ask more... More

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.
