An outstanding bottle shop located just a stone’s throw from the Vatican. Wonderful assortment of beers from all around the world with a definite emphasis on Italy. Service was attentive and friendly. Grab a cup and drink your beer outside the shop. I will definitely stop back here on my next visit to Rome.

Visited around 5pm on Monday 10th Feb 2014. As others have touched on not too far from the Vatican, I’d say about 7 or 8 minutes from the actual entrance/exit to the museums. I was the only person in Johnnys II on my visit. The guy behind the counter spoke good English and took the time to find some beers/styles I was asking after. A solid selection of beers from IT, the UK, DK the US and Belgium formed the large part of the stock in Johnnys II. Also sells wine. Well worth popping here, it took me about 25-30 minutes to walk back to the centre of the old town by the Pantheon.

Stopped in after the Vatican. The guys working were friendly, though we didn’t talk much. Nice selection, mostly of Italian micros, though lots of nice Belgians and Dutch beers as well. Generally looks like an excellent place, though I did not get a chance to go back and stock up.

In the Vatican neighbourhood. I believe this is the second Johnny’s Off License, the other one is the original. Obviously the selection is similar to the other Johnny’s Off License in Rome. This one is however a lot bigger with floor space, about three times as much floor space as the other Johnny’s Off License. The extra floor space doesn’t translate to a much bigger selection. It’s just more spread out with many bottles of each beer instead of cramped display of the other location. A different shopping experience. A few hundred different beers, 1/3 belgium and imports, 2/3 italians. I was able to score the Maltus Faber Imperial Stout that was sold out at the other Johnny’s. Very friendly staff with basic English knowledge. Just as friendly as the other Johnny’s Off License. When I asked for an Italian beer they didn’t have they were very friendly and gave me the address of competitors. If you are staying in the Vatican area this is your beer shop.

Mostly a wine store but Johnny has some really nice treats. Foreign rare Moor, thornbridge and Mikkeller beers. And a splendid Italian selection. All beers are fridged . . A fine place to pick up some rarities. For instance I found Borgo Imperial staut here.

More space than in the other shop, very handy if you are in the Vatican area. Enormous range of Italian micros, personal and attentive service, helping you pick just what you need.

I am surprised to see this is not rated yet. I didn’t make it to Off License, so this was by far the best shop I found in two weeks in Italy. I don’t think there are quite 1,000 different beers, but there is an extensive Italian and Belgian selection, and some things from Germany and the UK I have not seen before. John took a lot of time to teach me about Italian beer, and even opened a bottle for me to drink in the shop. Prices are low for beer, mostly. 15 for selection, because it is far larger than anything else I could find. This is a great store.

Excellent selection of Italian and foreign beer, all kept refrigerated. Some rarities and beers made for the shop only raises the score

Great shop. Range isn’t encyclopaedic but exceptionally well selected. Really interesting stuff from Belgium, Scandinavia and the US on top of heaps of interesting Italian stuff including a few things made especially for them. Beautifully set out as well. Fantastic service on my visit, full of suggestions for the travelling geek and he seemed very aware that Italian beer seems expensive to outsiders (not so much to Australians though!). Nice wine selection too. Short walk from the Vatican too - I managed to have the girls save my spot in the queue whilst I went beer shopping. Genius, except I couldn’t find the baggage check area inside.

Not far from the Vatican and the Ottaviano "San Pietro" stop on Metro Linea A. Great selection of Italian beers especially Baladin with a nice selection of other countries - even a decent selection of Mikkeller beers. Had the whole shop to myself late afternoon on a Friday - only one staff member when I was there but she was very friendly despite the language barrier. They accept credit cards. Definitely worth a trip when in Rome especially to get something besides Peroni and Birra Moretti.
