Castroni

Food & Drinks in Vatican City, Borgo & Prati

Founded in 1932, this historic food shop (and the anchor location of a small local chain) is an Aladdin’s cave of gourmet treats. Towering, ceiling-high shelves groan under the weight of Italian wines and regional specialities, foreign delicacies, sandwiches and snacks, and all manner of sweets and chocolates. Savour the coffee odours that waft up from the in-store bar.
