Service friendly. Food middle class but plenty. Location on a quiet street near vatican- if you search for an escape from the crowd-a good place to be. Price- moderate: menu with salad, noodles, stake with spinach , desert and water- 20 €.

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
