Delicious sandwiches - vegan options on the menu, as well as the option to pick your own fillings. Also sells veggie, pork and fish sandwiches, if with friends who don't want to eat vegan. Very close to the Vatican, so very handy if visiting the area. Prices are reasonable, and staff are friendly and helpful.

Lovely little sandwich shop with 3 bar stools inside. We had veggie pasta and vegan cous cous and a seitan wrap.. all were very delicious and really well priced too. The owner was lovely and offered a container to take our left overs away

Next to the Vatican, you can take a break with a really welcoming staff, speaking french and helping you to choose what you want in your salad or sandwich. It's not expensive and the sandwich are great you cannot take dessert after. I really recomand you this place!

I am a vegan visiting Rome. A friend told me to give up that vegan stuff while I was in Rome because of all the great food. Well I wasn't going to stop being vegan so I had to find a great vegan restaurant. FaBio is a great little vegan/vegeterian sandwich shop near the Vatican. They have fruit and veggie... More

Came here before a tour of the Vatican for a quick sandwich and my boyfriend says it's the best sandwich he's ever had! I really enjoyed the vegan sandwich, it was my first time having seitan and it was lovely. Really fresh and good crusty bread. Lovely helpful staff and a great price. Definitely recommend.

This place is tiny, with just couple of seats, but definitely worth a visit. They make sandwiches, salads and smoothies and all for a good price - especially so close to Vatican. Salads around 5 euros, sandwiches a bit cheaper. The service was amazing and the salads are made from fresh ingredients right in front of you. I would definitely... More

This place uses fresh ingredients to make their food and juice so everything is nice and healthy. We had a juice and a smoothie and they were really nice. The staff are helpful however this place is tiny so everyone is squished in and there's a longer wait but it's worth it. A bit pricey for the portion size though.

This tiny organic restaurant is worth the walk from St. Peter's. They make delicious sandwiches and have a number of vegetarian and vegan options. The menu is all in Italian and there were no other tourists there (at least on the day we visited), but the people who work there speak great English and are extremely helpful. We ordered smoothies... More

Staying in Prati

Neighbourhood Profile
Prati
Just steps away from the chaos of the centre, Prati is the closest Rome gets to calm. Meticulously planned in a neat grid, quite unlike neighbouring Borgo, Prati is a local favourite for its aesthetic organisation and wide streets lined with a range of boutiques for every shopping fantasy. Nonnis pushing baby carriages and gossiping teens own every inch of the sidewalk, but that’s only during business hours. Once the sun sets, quirky sidestreet bars celebrate aperitivo hour, those evening cocktails that help wash away the tensions of Roman life.
