Recently returned from a really enjoyable weekend in Rome, marred only by our experience of Rome hospitality from this cafe.
The cafe is situated on a piazza quite close to the Vatican and I imagine they rely on passing trade from unsuspecting tourists. In our case they hit the jackpot! We wanted 4 ice creams and the notice outside stated that 2 scoops was 2 euros. We placed our orders and were then asked if we wanted to take out or eat in. As there was a small bistro table on the pavement next to the ice cream kiosk we said we would sit there to eat them and were told that they would bring them in glass dishes. So far so good. Ice creams arrived and were perfectly acceptable. What was not acceptable was the bill - 54 euros - for 4 ice creams. We had been naive enough not to reconfirm prices for eating in, but even so 12/15 euros for an ice cream at a cafe is bordering on the criminal. We were then threatened with the police if we did not pay. Places like this damage the reputation of a city - it's a shame they can't be closed down!
