Excellent value for money

We had just arrived and wanted something light to eat. We saw this place and it looked very clean. there is outside seating but it was a little too cold. The staff didn't speak good English (it was still better than our Italian!!) but they really tried to help us with our order. We had 6... read more

Amazing food, amazing service. Once we had eaten we ordered a few more rounds of beers and with each round we were given a few plates of appetisers completely unexpected but certainly a great way to keep us in. Lovely staff too, we will be coming back for sure!

Came here for lunch and dinner. They have good prices and wifi. The setting is on a busy street, but you can see St Peter's and enjoy long hours without the staff bothering you.

Two years ago we were here. It will be on our list every time we are here. It is within steps of Saint Peters. The food is not to be missed. Try the Tuna. Ask for Mobarak. He and his staff will take good care of you.

I went to this cafe often with my wife while we were staying near the Vatican. The Coffee (Americano, Espresso or Cappuccino (my favorite) were great and there was always a great biscotti to go with the coffee. Our waiter Mubarak was always willing to go out of his way to make sure we were well looked after. Sitting outdoors... More

This is by far the worst place I've ever been in Italy. I looked at other reviews and thought I could trust their good opinion but this place is horrible. The service is slow and they roll their eyes at you if you ask the price you will be charged. However when the check comes all the prices are completely... More

You will get swindled if you do not speak italian well. We were charged an extra 2 euros after we asked our server to simply explain the bill as it did not label the food items. Apparently he did not like the question, because he came back with an extra receipt charging us more.

We were staying around the corner at a hotel and they recommended this instead of their own restaurant because it didn't charge as much. Wow, what a delight. We ended up going there every morning and every evening for the six days of our trip. Mubarek waited on us at night, what a funny guy. I have to say the... More
