Don't go there!!!

It's the biggest tourist trap in the Vatican area. Prices are outrageous, border line illegal. The staff is rude and service is terrible. A bottle of water: 15 euros! Stay away from that place.

Two beers and a plate of snacks given to us "gratis" which we told them to take away immediately. We did not touch the snacks and watched as they made fun of tourists to their faces and behind their backs. I hope the Pope pays them a visit to tell them how to be decent human beings.

We stopped here to have a gelato while waiting to get into the Vatican museum. value was fine and gelato was excellent. didn't like having to go inside to pay after getting the gelato but that was no big deal.

Please keep away this premise, prices are really high and they do not reflect expectations at all! With those money you can really have an unforgettable experience in Italy!!! Ridicolously bad!!!! Shame for my Italy when I walk in to places like that! No more!

I'm italian but I need that our tourists understand that eating here will seriously harm your breakfast or lunch budget. Everything here is meaningless expensive. Quality of food is absolutely random as i've paid more than 30 euros for two sandwiches and a bottle of water (not Piper).

Located directly across the exist from the Vatican Museum exit. When they handed me the 50Eu receipt for 2 gelatos, 2 coffees and water, I thought they'd made a mistake. They insisted: that was the price. Be sure: this is NOT fine dining - it's a scam. They publish no prices, have no printed menus with prices, no prices on... More
