What you would expect

They have nice coffees, croissants and other pastries. The one item to be prepared for is that they do not accept credit cards and are a little bit rude when you offer one.

We were tired after spending over 3 hrs at the Vatican museum and the first restaurant is located right opposite the exit from the museum. We had no energy to go further without a bite. A tiny square slice of pizza EUR 12. A glass of beer and a coffee cost us EUR 36. I was furious but had no... More

After visiting Vatican City, Me, My boyfriend and my daughter went for dinner, the restaurant seemed nice so we went inside and asked for prices, shown a menu on the wall but later discovered this was the take out menu. We asked what we would like and we was sat down in the back of the restaurant, no menus were... More

One coke, one sparkling water, one tuna sandwich and one ham & cheese sandwich : 44 euro, and make sure you specify you want your change back as they seem to think they deserve a tip for their performance. Water and coke were nice and cold, sandwiches are crap. Need to say more ? As staff, I would be ashamed... More

Please do not even enter the premises. €71 for two for meatballs and spaghetti. Two cokes €12. One street 5 minutes away you will find better food and drink at a reasonable price. This is a con.

The problem? 33 Euro for two coffees and two croissants, delivered with a sprinkling of arrogance and condescension. Clearly they have enough customers who haven't been on TripAdvisor first. Such a missed opportunity for the establishment, but I guess they are making a fortune anyway, so who cares, hey?

First of all the staff were clearly talking about as and laughing while we were still undecided on what to order and we paid €15 for a coffee and an orange juice. When we got the bill we were relieved that we had not bought anything else! Avoid this place, not worth it.

As the title states: BEWARE THIS CAFE! We walked in and they sat us down, the place seemed nice enough and the hostess was very friendly. They didn't have any material menus, but all the food was on display and we were asked to simply choose and they'd bring it to us. In hindsight, that should have been our first... More

Pretty much what I expected. Didn't read the reviews until I was sitting in the cafe, drinking my first cappuccino. Prices are shown but not very visible, the charges shown for the beer's in the coolers should be a giveaway! Decided to stay anyway as the food looked quite good. Was not disappointed. Had another cappuccino and tea for the... More

We walked into this place after a stop at the Vatican Museums and pulled up the TA reviews while waiting for a waiter. What we saw shook us to the core, so we got up and left. Thank you SO much, Trip Advisor. The menu has no prices. The portions are small. GET OUT!!! We found pizza down the street... More
