If you happen to be in Rome and are Catholic, this is a definite stop but I would recommend to anyone. Nuns serve French food off a set menu or a la carte. I recommend the a la carte, especially the spinach crepe au gratin (superb). They open for dinner at 7pm but make sure you stay when the nuns come out and all sing Ave Maria at 9:30pm. They are also open for lunch but the evening is recommended. Often you will be dining with cardinals, bishops, priests and other nuns. It is a little hard to find but located behind the Panthenon. We were lucky that someone told us about this gem and we would recommend it to anyone there.
