Yesterday, at a restaurant in Rome, at the table next to mine, there were seated four people: a Catholic priest (in a kind of cassock), two lay people, and the woman in the photo, who apparently wears some kind of religious uniform (as well as a crucifix on a chain) that I couldn't recognise.

enter image description here

Does anyone know which uniform is this?

    It looks like a Camillians novice or some similar order that takes care of sick or poor.

    What, that isn't what the pizza chefs in Rome are wearing these days? Jul 13 '17 at 17:27

    Never seen a religious habit with short sleeves. Could be wrong, but this looks like a student studying in a private Catholic School, wearing a school uniform. Most religious do not go out for lunch or dinner. Diocesan priests do all the time! Female religious do not ware earrings.

She could be of the Order of the Camillians, who takes care of the sick and dying, or she could simply be an altar server after a matyr celebration or Palm Sunday (the red belt).
