Taverna Angelica

Updated 03/25/2014

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. Dishes such as warm scampi with artichokes and tomatoes are more about taste than presentation. 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.

An Angelic Mouthful

We had a lovely Sunday lunch in July. A bit hard to find but worth the aggravation. Once seated in the spotless and modern dining room, we opted for the Sunday brunch for 25E. (you can also choose with one less course the 20E selection). Included with your lunch choices are the bread basket, water, coffee and a glass of wine. It was a delicious lunch made even nicer by the service we received.
