From board searching, it seems the consensus is that the Vatican area has a lot of tourist traps. I certainly remember this from the last time I went to the Vatican in 2003, eating the only horrible meal of our trip near there, since we couldn't find any of our recommended eating spots in walking distance, we ended up somewhere random with food so salty it was hard to swallow. And the waiter told us that we found it salty because Americans aren't used to pecorino cheese!
Please help, I can't seem to find any Vatican-area recommended spots for lunch.
Thanks again. And again.
