Fodor's Review

The Borgo area near St. Peter's Basilica hasn't been known for culinary excellence, but this is starting to change, and Taverna Angelica was one of the first refined restaurants in this part of town. The dining room is small, which allows the chef to create a menu that's inventive without being pretentious: perhaps pasta with pistachio pesto and shrimp, or turbot with crushed almonds and white wine sauce. Spaghetti with crunchy pancetta and leeks is wonderful, as is the warm seafood soup. Fresh sliced tuna in a pistachio crust with orange sauce is light and delicious. Desserts here go beyond the staples of tiramisù and panna cotta.

This was the best dinner ever during my trip in Italy. Food was exceptional, the service was even better. I selected Taverna Angelica because Fodor's recommended them in the best 25 places to visit in Rome. Something you should definitely experience while visiting the vatican in Rome.
