We stopped here for 2 cokes and were stunned to be charged €11! €4.50 each for each very small tins of coke and €2 service charge - avoid like the plague!!! Absolute daylight robbery. If I could give it zero I would.

Not the cheapest place but the food was pretty decent, actually had some flavour and the service was fast and very friendly.

There is a single reason to go to L’Eliseo on V Nazionale - everything else is closed and you’re so terribly hungry that you can’t wait until somewhere else has opened. Both the frittata and the pizza were awful - the frittata tasted like old...More

We were at Via nazionale where our hotel was located, we saw some pastries and we went in! We ordered a caramel-chocolate and a starwberry cheese cake and both were great!

Four Euros for a Latte may be just a little expensive but five for a tea! Ridiculous! And they have the cheek to charge an obligatory two Euros service. They're relying on gullible tourists so avoid.

As a Paris resident I know what it means to pay too much but Massimilio and his staff have taken it to a new level, 2.50€ for a small bottle of water. Cheap boring ambiance designed to turn the tables quickly. Like most questionable businesses...More

A café EUR 3.00, a café-latte EUR 4.00, a cornetto (brioche) EUR 2.00. The price of these items are much lower anywhere else, even in better places.

Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighbourhood just
west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as
it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet
for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season,
quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its
cobblestone streets. The neighbourhood supports unique
and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime
residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at
