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 of a handful of more refined dining outposts in this part of town. The dining room is small, which allows the chef to create a menu that's inventive without being pretentious: think pasta with pistachio pesto and shrimp or turbot with crushed almonds and white wine sauce. Spaghetti with crunchy pancetta and leeks is practically addictive, as is the warm seafood soup. Fresh sliced tuna in a pistachio crust with orange sauce is light and delicious. And desserts here go beyond the same-old tiramisu and panna cotta.

A hidden gem

This restaurant was right around the corner from our hotel, so we thought we would give it a shot. The food is a modern take on traditional Italian and was delicious! It is definitely not a tourist trap and is very refreshing if you have been eating a lot of stuffy old trattorias. Our server was very helpful in suggesting dishes and wine.
