The Vatican has been an independent state since 1929 and remains one of the most architecturally accomplished cities in Italy. It is a landmark in Rome and represents one of the most important influences exerted over the country. Here are ten of the best dining-establishments in the region.
This is a place that you cannot miss if you visit Rome. Porchetta is roast pork that is generally served in a bread roll with vegetables of your choosing. It is best combined with quality beers, and Angrypig Birretta e Porchetta has a wide selection of drinks on offer from just €3,50 a bottle. The interior is modern and simple, suitable for a street-food shop. What’s more, several kinds of wine and cold meat as well as cheese are available if you’re looking for a special treat.

This little street-food shop combines fresh seasonal products and a passion for bakery and pizza. It is the perfect choice for an authentic Roman lunch or for a quick dinner before hurrying to the next place on your tourist map. The toppings are extremely creative and overwhelmingly delicious, ranging from traditional margherita to the intense combination of porcini mushrooms and salted pork fat. Customers should not expect, however, the standard round pizza; Pizzarium only sells square pizzas – typical of Roman street food.
