A quick eat out area inside termini. Variety in food at different times of the day. Sufficient seating inside. Negative would be no English speaking person at food selection area. Risotto was cold on one day and the person was rather rude when I asked, maybe he did not understand. There was a microwave at seating area, so we managed.

We had a breakfast sandwich daily at Chef Express in the Termini and aside from one with unknown meat inside, they were all delicious, not expensive, and filling.

Great place to grab refreshments/espresso, and snacks prior to long train ride, and right by the platform in termini. Actually can handle the business that comes in, which is a novelty in Rome, as most don't. Easy and done.

We went here for a quick coffee before hitting the town. Coffee wasn't bad, but service was typical for Italians... First person collects order, second makes them. Sounds fair. But like always, Italian can't cooperate with each other, even on something that simple, like making coffee. So second employee want to paid for our order again, but the first person... More

A buffet café in the Termini station serving excellent 'Italian' coffee, paninis, salads, hot food etc. all at very reasonable prices. A good refreshing stop off either before or after the bustle of Rome's transport systems

Chef's Express is located in Termini Station. Go inside and start walking towards the back It is cafeteria style but you can get anything you want here. The pasta station cooks pasta to order and you have a choice of toppings. We ordered a plate of fresh cooked spinach and it was some of the best we've ever tasted.

There is an interior restaurant inside from the one in the photo, which has a 3 course meal for 10.90 euros and is frequented by... More

22 euros, or $29 dollars... gets you an great burger, a good size salad, a beer and a glass or wine. Hey look at those pictures... it was like standing next to the guy cooking it personally.
