Taverna Angelica Review
The area surrounding St. Peter's Basilica isn't known for culinary excellence, but this is an exception. Its tiny size allows the chef to concentrate on each individual dish, and the menu is creative without being pretentious. Dishes such as warm scampi with artichokes and tomatoes are more about taste than presentation. The breast of duck with honey and rye bread brings hunter's cuisine to a new level, and spaghetti with crunchy pancetta and leeks is what the Brits call "more-ish" (meaning you want more of it). Fresh sliced tuna in a pistachio crust with orange sauce is light and delicious. It may be difficult to find, on a section of the street that's set back and almost subterranean, but Taverna Angelica is worth seeking out.
