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 ;)

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

The atmosphere was nice but the price was a little expensive. The food was good but the price was a little too much for a salad and an yogurt. If you can, bring food from outside.

We bought the "Italian Restaurant Lunch" with our entry tickets for an extra 18 euros each. We have never had a worse meal anywhere in Italy. The 'restaurant' turned out to be the cafeteria where we queued up to have some disgusting cold pasta dumped on our plates together with something described as meatballs. We have no idea what meat...

Even as tired as you are, as hungry as you are, as desperate as you are, as whiney as your kids are, resist the temptation to take the easy way out and eat here. Leave the museum and eat elsewhere. You will waste your time and your money and be really angry at yourself for it. The staff has absolutely... More

Read negative reviews of the restaurant so was very wary of eating here. However the meal was far nicer than I expected. The food was good: the pasta dish, chicken and potatoes tasted good and was very filling. The staff were helpful. I was impressed.
