The servers were friendly enough, but it was confusing initially where we should go to order. We ended up sitting at a table and being served. I ordered a suppli, but unfortunately the ones with cheese were sold out so I had spinach instead. My boyfriend had a potato pizza, which tasted good. My guidebook suggested that the pizzas started... More

Panella is totally underrated and very refreshing. I recommend their buffallo mozzarella with basil and pine nut mousse served atop pantano tomatoes.

My wife and I came here in the morning twice. The first thing I have to say is that I was a bit perplexed at how to order. Best thing to do is to take a look at the pastries and tell the girls what you want. Then go to the cash register with the pastry, the guy there will... More

Great bakery in the heart of Rome, from pizza to cakes. Great place for aperitivo, however a bit expensive (a piece if cake -7/12 euro).

My husband and I visited this cafe twice during our visit to Rome, once for lunch and then for breakfast. On both occasions the staff were friendly and the coffee and food were excellent. Price was reasonable.

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

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

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
