While waiting to join a Vatican tour we went in here for a drink. A latte, one small pot of tea & one pastry came to €23!!!! The price list is displayed high above the entrance. Hard to see unles you are really looking. Avoid this place unless you enjoy being ripped off! Such a shame when other places we... More

We met our tour guide here and enjoyed a lite snack and drink. It is located conveniently in front of the main entrance to the Vatican Museums. We particularly enjoyed sitting outside and watching everyone enter the Vatican. Overall, an enjoyable lunch at a nice place. The staff was very kind.

We dived in here for shelter during a thunderstorm. We should have stayed outside and got soaked; instead we were charged 20 euros for two scoops of ice cream. An experience which left us feeling angry and stupid. I am pleased to say this was an exception to the good service and friendliness we experienced everywhere else during our stay.

WARNING...Thieves that double dipped on visa and served crap food. Instead of nearly €100.00 it cost us closer to €200.00. The problem with this place is that they are in a prime position at the Vatican City tour entrance and most people won't realise until it's too late. It's an absolute disgrace that is obviously condoned by the "establishment" here... More

This place was SO HORRIBLE, and the people who own this are SCUM. My wife and I had promised each other that we would make the time to try gelato on our 2-day trip to Rome. We had so many things jam-packed into our trip, including a trip to the Vatican, that we were delighted when we saw a gelato... More

We popped in here for drinks before our Vatican tour a beer, Coffee and a muffin cost 40 euros. So we would say avoid this place there are places a lot cheaper just down the road.

Without a doubt the biggest rip-off that we experienced in Rome. This was definitely daylight robbery and all within the shadow of the Vatican. Is there no shame in these people? No menu available and the pricelist is pretty well hidden beside the till. The food was mediocre, I had to hunt below the leaves for the chicken in my... More
