Fast and simple

So not aspect anything fancy as it's just 4.50 for a pizza and water or 6 for a pizza and soft drink of your choose. Service is non attendant so just buy and eat. It's edible but not your restaurant quality. All in all hungry but and eat ;)

To see most of the collections of the Vatican Museums requires at least one whole day - 9:00 - 16:30. That means lunch in the middle of the day is necessary, both for re-fueling and for a break in so much beauty and interest to give refreshed impetus for the rest. To be able to book that lunch as part... More

Nothing great. Clean, efficient, fairly quiet, but most important. Somewhere to sit down and rest those tired legs. Food and drink no worse or beter than a service station.

The food is not of high standards but for us it was exciting to be having lunch at the Vatican! Basic slice of pizza and water is about 5 euro - there are other choices but that's what we had - on the upper level aabove the pizza place, there was a coffee shop with nice cappuccino (about 1,50) and...

Terrible! I've recently pre-booked and had luncheon (and dinner) at prices not wildly dissimilar to the 18 Euro paid in advance for lunch at the Vatican Museum Restaurant in a refectory seating 200 at another property under the overarching ambit of the Vicariato di Roma. I have been exceptionally well served there - a converted seminary refectory - with a... More

We paid in advance E22.50 x 2 tickets for a "Restaurant Lunch". But after we received the tour we came to the restaurant, found it was just a horrible cafeteria, self-serve, no waiters, and looking like a school lunchroom. We DECLINED to eat any food there and complained to the manager of the cafeteria. He would not refund our money... More

Easy to move around and enjoy.... With lots to see and time necessary to complete the visit this break was a great relaxing moment.

There are very few complaints you can make about this place. If they had intended it to be a four star hotel dining room, there would have been fancy tables and chairs and white tablecloths. The way you see it is the way they intended, a fast food cafeteria style place to grab a quick bite. If, like me you... More

My family had spent a long day at the museum and decided to go to the cafeteria for a quick bite. We went to the pizzeria and had the worst pizza of all of Italy. The pizza was different for everyone even though we have the same order. Some pizza had a decent amount of tomato sauce and some had... More

Yes your in Italy and no you should't have pizza from a self service restaurant, but this is actually very good and it is a welcome treat after trying to get through the crowds at the Vatican. It does pizza and drinks and not much else but it is good value and fed the kids to keep them going till... More
