“There IS good food in quiet spot just a stone's throw from Vatican”
Reviewed 10 May 2012

Saw this in Lonely Planet guide and as advertised, it was quiet (outside table no problem), inexpensive and good food. Just 3 blocks from St. Peter's Square. Saw some nice pizzas going to another table -- we opted for a nosh-style mix of a cheese and meat plate, meat-stuffed fried olives and 'nuvolette campagnole', literally "peasant clouds" -- tasty fried bread-puff things one gobbles with everything else. Yum. Service typcially Roman (hence, only four stars). But under 25 E including two cokes, and small tip.

“Not just pizza”
Reviewed 6 May 2010

We just had dinner at Angeli a Borgo at the recommendation of our B&B owner, Daniele. We had quite of bit of pizza the last week or so and were looking for something different. While Angeli a Borgo had pizza we decided to order the spinach salad, rigatone with cheese, and a chicken dish with curry. Our waiter was quick to get our drinks and also asked what order we'd like our food brought to the table. Our food was excellent. The restaurant was casual with a very nice atmosphere.

“Great place to have a pizza near St. Peter's”
Reviewed 18 May 2009

This family-run pizza restaurant near St. Peter's and the Vatican Museums (actually just off Piazza Risorgimento) is a delightful place to spend a lunch or evening meal. Their pizza selections are excellent. Here you will find pizza with a crust a bit thicker than the Roman tradition, with great combinations of ingredients. For those in a lighter frame of mind, they offer "nuvoletti", literally "little clouds" which are pieces of pizza dough served with a selection of toppings--a kind of make-your-own mini-pizza with each bite. They also serve salads and pasta dishes. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. Best to come early or book in advance on the weekends as the place is quite popular!
