Avoid this place

1 Chicken schnitzel with Spaghetti, 1 x Caprese salad, 1 x beer, 1 x glass of wine came to 93 Euro. The food is terrible, and the prices are the worst in Italy. I would strongly suggest you avoid this place, they just gouge tourists.

Came for a quick snack, bill came to over €50!! Do not waste your money! The tuna sandwich had hardly any tuna and the bread was stale. Was being served by the manager who was unbelievably rude

I have given this place one-star because that is the lowest Tripadvisor allows. If I could, I would give it a minus number. They do what they do well, but what they do is gouge tourists. When we tried to ask the prices beforehand, they pretended to know no English. But their English suddenly improved when it came time to... More

Don't waste your money, do the tour instead. The food had been left out for don't know how long, the warmers were not on. The eggs were half cooked and runny. The sausages were cold, the "hot" cakes had been there for hours and were also cold. Pastries tasted like they were a day old. Absolutely horrible experience. I don't... More

Very friendly staff. Air Conditioned! A bit noisy with activity of people. Good selection for fast meal near Vatican Museum entrance/exit. I only gave it 2 stars, but this is the best of this type of convenient restaurant.

There is no waitress and service outside, so you can sit for free in the shadow opposite the museo vaticano and wait for entrance

Light sandwiches, bottled water and espresso. Not a lot of seating and mediocre food but it's a must to rest your feet before taking in the wonder of the Sistine Chapel.

My husband and I came here after buying two cappuccinos at the other cafe a few steps down bc those coffees were up drinkable. We overpAid but knew we would given the location. Service was actually good,and I was able to use the restroom, which was clean so I can't complain other than to say it is definitely overpriced. We... More

You expect to pay more in certain places but these guys completely kick the backside out of it. I have paid €3 for lovely 2 coffees off the Via Nazionale, here I paid €19.60 for the same, when I queried the price I simply got a shrug of the shoulders as a response. Do not go here unless you have... More

52€ for 3 pastries, 3 coffees and 3 bottles of water. If we weren't in a hurry to get to our tour, I would have gone to a store and bought cheese and crackers or something!
