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

The food in this café was beyond average. I could tell immediately that my husband's pizza was frozen vs fresh, and my pasta was bland. Too bad this was our first restaurant of 16. It was by far the worst.

My daughter and I stopped in for a quick bite to eat after a long day of traveling. She ordered pizza and I had a sandwich. The pizza was tasteless and the sandwich had semi-melted cheese, wilted lettuce and one sorry tomato. The sandwich looked like it had been made a couple of days before. We finished up this experience... More

I'm honestly shocked to see there are excellent reviews for this place. Maybe my wife and I were there on an off day, but I'll never find out otherwise because I don't plan on ever going back. My wife and I each ordered sandwiches and a plate of Mediterranean pasta, arancini (rice ball with cheese), and I ordered a caffé... More

My husband and I went here for lunch our first day in Rome because it was a few blocks from where we were staying. I got a sandwich, poppy seed loaf, some type of salami, maybe, and arugula, and my husband got the tuna pasta. The bread was delicious and fresh, and my husband's pasta was amazing. Simple, penne pasta,... More

Sandwiches are good, coffee is good, deserts are good, prices are good, location is good. All this makes this place perfect. Limited English among personnel doesn't count.

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.
