This place is always open late and frequented by locals. If you're a tourist in Rome and want to hang out with some Romans late night, I highly recommend going there. The bartenders are all polite and speak English and the Vatican is less than 2 blocks away! 5 Stars!

This is the worst place I ever visited in my life. Waiters are terrible, very rude. This is absolutely not a place I would recommend at all.

Dear Mary K I'm sorry to read your words. I would like to know from you if you remember exactly the day of your visit and describe the waiters who have treated you badly to be able to take action and improve my reception to customers. Thank you. Lorenzo More

Great selection of beer and quite a few mixed drinks--even one named after my home state-Minnesota. Lots of locals at the pub, but a great place to unwind after a day of sightseeing.

Thank you Thomas for your review. I'm glad you found the cocktail dedicated to your home state-Minnesota. I created this cocktail just for the American people that came from there. I hope to see you soon in Rome and in my local. Thanks again. Lorenzo More

After reading good reviews thought we'd check it out, must be under new owners cause its a little pub & a few drinks on draft but not much else no live music definitely no saxophone no atmosphere no wifi just a pub & made us feel like outsiders so had one drink & moved on....

Hello Strev87. Are you sure you have been to Saxophone in Via Germanico 26? Because is it true that there is no wifi, it is not mandatory. However, there are 8 beers on tap and many other cocktails and soft drinks to drink. The live music we do now rarely and only in winter. Again in Rome there is another... More

We found this neat little pub by accident last year while aimlessly wandering the area North of Vatican City. We decided to try to find it again, and after wandering and asking directions for about 2 hours in the rain, we finally located it. We will never travel again without a small hand held GPS. Rome, in the rain and... More

We had read about this pub on this site so we thought we would give it a go, to us it was a normal type of pub, nothing flash but that doesn't make a good pub, it's the beer, staff and clientele and all three were upto scratch, a lovely pint of stout (which I had a few), very friendly... More

We passed it buy chance and I said we would give it a try.Although there's nothing fancy about the ambiance, it's was truly a place for great music. The bartender was always joking around, very nice guy, he spoke good English too. If you like great Jazz and Saxo give it a try. its close to the Vatican Gardens. Sonia

Read the touristinfobook "Top Ten - Rome" first, Saxophone Pub was introduced as a place with live jazz or blues, evening the locals jamming there. This turned out to be outmoded, and disappontment as such. No live music, no jazz or blues, but rock&roll. A friendly, as-a-matter-of-fact-style service. Great selection of beer, both draft and in bottles. The meal was... More

What a wonderful surprise we found near the Vatican. Great selection of beers, and large burgers too. Extremely friendly to strangers. A definite go back to whenever we are in Rome. Met several extremely friendly, and helpful locals who provided info on local restaurants and markets. Wish we would have found this place sooner, but we did go back 3... More

During a weeklong vacation to Rome, we visited this bar because it had been recommended through another website. Sure enough, this venue was mainly frequented by a mixed local crowd. You may think this is good, right? Not the case at all! Servers neglect unfamiliar faces, bar tenders do the same and you can expect judgemental looks from their regulars... More
