We stopped here for lunch after Easter Mass and even though we were in no hurry the service was very slow. We were seated right away and given menus, but then the slowdown started. Took about 15 minutes for the waiter to come take our order, the food arrived in another 15 minutes, then we ate and after being done... More

We had a terrible experience here. We entered the cafe and approached the counter of sandwiches. While we stood waiting to be acknowledged, several other local customers approached the counter and were served. Tired of being ignored, we were just about to walk out when a staff member finally asked us what we wanted. We ordered two cappuccinos and 4... More

What can I say about a place that the service is A+. The food especially the Lasagna is great. The Hot Chocolate and Coffee is one of a kind. It was only a couple of blocks from the Vatican City and my Hotel Star MichaelAngelo. Will come back on my next trip on a hard beat. Chao Roma!!!

The pizza was fantastic, and this was among the better stops on my trip to Rome! It is also right across from the Vatican, so is in a prime location . The desserts, including triple chocolate muffins are also rich in taste, yet not overly sweet! - A very happy customer.

We ordered prosciotto&cheese sandwich, croissont with chocolate, muffin,toast with cheese, cafe latte and esspresso. All were tasty. The ladies who work there were very polite and friendly. Prices were reasonable. There was nothing... More

We stopped in for a quick lunch, pizza and lasagna. Food was wonderful, prices were extremely reasonable. Beer was tasty and icy cold. We wanted dessert and our wonderful host Mobarak recommended the house specialty… Gelati with espresso. Outstanding!! We would highly recommend when you visit the Vatican area, and we will certainly be back!

A nice little cafe next to the Vatican. While waiting for our transport to the airport, we sat down to have a coffee. We tried the capuccino and caffe latte - which, unfortunately, were only warm, not hot. We also had the chocolate muffin which was great!
