nice place, a lot of young urban local people. food bar is nice with , although somewhat greasy, a wide variety of small bites. typical roman style food. price is reasonable as it is just 10 minutes walking distance from the colosseum.

15 euro for a Heineken? 18 euro for a cocktail? Again, 15 euro for regular beer? Even in the most expensive restaurants I have not seen prices like this. We did not even get to the deserts, maybe they would be good, but such high prices for drinks in a place like this, that is not right and a total... More

Dear Customer, Prices you are talking about are referred to happy-hour with a huge open no limits buffet served by our waiters; this buffet is included! You could see Photos of the variety of our offer on Facebook or our website. During the day a beer costs 6.50 euros served, the cocktail 10 euros. I'm sorry you didn't eat nothing.... More

Good coffee, apparently the best I had in Rome, coming from Paris where good coffee are everywhere ! Bakery to me, was average. Same reason, Paris has great bakeries around, so my demand would be higher.

Dear Customer, Thanks for your reviews. We love to prepare coffee and we choose to make it in a different way. Arduino is the name of our coffee machine and as you propbably verified it's vertical rather than Other kind of coffee machines. We selected a special and unique coffee blend and we are glad you appreciated it! Have you... More

Went there a few times and am still confused what I thought. Tried the early morning strudels and was shocked as it was zuccunni figs and other stuff want sugary salty sour it was all three. I looked it but at €6 a slice a tad bit expensive as is most of their fresh food so I guess you pay... More

Having read the reviews I was disappointed in the quality of the baking. The items I had were fine, but I've had better elsewhere. You also have to put this in the context of extortionate prices for what you get. There is lots of choice in bakery products, but I would have been happier with a smaller number of truly... More

My 12 year old daughter and I spotted the wonderful artistic breads in the window when we walked by and decided to try eating there. We were simply delighted by the buffet style offerings, just lovely tastes. We could not believe how reasonable the bill was at the end because we had paid more than this for a very average... More

I had a 2-gelato per day minimum while in Rome, so we stopped here one night while walking back to our B&B. The gelato was good, service seemed friendly, and there were some lovely, creative breads on display on the inside. The outside patio was very nice and clean.

Excellent place to go for cocktails and cake. We did not have the self service buffet as we had eaten but the food looked really good and the desert we had was delicious . Would highly recommend. Great for a fresh loaf as well!

My family and i have visited this place twice in two days!! The pastries and coffee were amazing (try the zabliogne in your macchiato). We also tried the aranchini (rice balls) and the zucchini fritters which were also great! The prices are cheaper if you sit inside at the bar rather than take a table outside but it wasn't expensive.... More

Thank you very much for your review. We love italian breakfast! Enjoy your coffee or cappuccino or home made fruit juice with great pastries of our bakery. If you prefer a continental Breakfast you should try a slice of hot pizza or a panino express. See you soon, More
