For a Nescafé and orange squash , although we have asked for a fresh one , we have paid around €18! Really?! London is far cheaper and the quality is by miles better! 😡😡😡😡 I would have left this review without star if I could !

Food isn't fresh. Doesn't taste nice. U could be in a cheap cafe in the UK for the taste not Italy! And ridiculously expensive!! U can't see the prices when u order and they insist on ordering for you and u have to forcefully say that u want to chose yourself. The waiters are sleezy. AVOID.

I'm a little baffled at the other recent reviews. We went last week and we thought it was a great little cafe. It was not high season for tourists and it was in the late afternoon, so it was very laid-back and easy going when we went. The food all looked very fresh and we liked everything we ordered, especially... More

Came here for breakfast while we waited for our tour round the Vatican! No complaints with the food or service at all! Me and my wife had a sandwich each that came with crisps (not fries unlike the pictures suggest) a croissant and a hot chocolate each! The bill was €50 plus a €5 service charge.. the quality of the... More

Just Don't go, don't even buy water !! They don't have prices on menu and can charge any amount..it was probably our most expensive meal in Rome and we have eaten at some of the best restaurants while we were there.

We had an Americano which tasted awful and a cappuccino which was good. The real was the bill; Euro17.60; this is not a misprint 17.60 Euros. Both the coffee and the bill left a bad taste.

My husband and I were waiting for our group to go into the Vatican, so we went into this café, in the meantime. Ordered 2 chocolats, without cream and 2 donuts for 20€ !!! OUTRAGEOUS !

Avoid, for the prices alone. For the love of the Holy See, walk 1 minute elsewhere. Small meal for 2 over 70EUR. Average service and taste. Menu was pictures only, should have left, knowing you are in a trap is one thing, but I didn't have the sense to avoid actually being snared. Don't come here.

After enter into this caffe the waitress insist with us to choose what we will eat before setting on the table. We preferred to sit first and then request the menu. The prices are completely crazy, specially for the quality. The food is not fresh and chips are bought on the supermarket. Embarrassing for Rome! Avoid this place!!
