What Satiricus can offer to you...

An internal  restaurant

The restaurant has about 200 seats and is well suited to host events, parties, group dinners etc. The decor is inspired by the imperial age, with busts mounted on walls and towering marble columns, but at the same time blends with the innovation of LCD screens and other very modern amenities. Other elements of humorous decor include "Roman": wagons, chariots and representations of emperors and gladiators. The dominant colour of the interior is red. 

An external dining area

The external environment is the ideal space to enjoy the view of the colonnade of St. Peter in Borgo Pio and taste some flavours of typical Italian cuisine. The outdoor area has up to 50 seats and is very appreciated by tourists and Romans who wish to enjoy the summer atmosphere. Ideal for an aperitif before a visit to the Vatican, to drink a glass of wine in good company or to enjoy an exotic cocktail.
