2 chicken wraps, some watermelon and one small bottle of water. £57.60 DISGUSTING TOURIST TRAP and they didn't even budge. There are no prices and I swear it conditional on what they charge. Food was bad.

We were watching the Olympics the buzzer just went off. As the racers started running they switched off the TV we were so disappointed. Other than that it is a nice restaurant. It also has some, good food.

Touristy Cafe across the street from the Vatican Museum: We asked for 4 gelate piccoli (small icecreams) at the street bar and then asked whether we could sit in to eat it as we were waiting for the rest of the group. We already had some suspicions when our cone icecreams came upside down on big plates with additional 5... More

My husband and I met our tour guide there. I asked for a menu, the waiter gave me a sheet with 4 pictures on it (spaghetti, T-bone steak mussels ...) no prices. I asked for something lighter. He said they have a ham and cheese sandwich. I ordered 2 sandwiches and 2 cokes. Didn't ask the price (how much could... More

This was possibly the worst meal we had in Rome. We had two "platters" and drinks. We could not believe it when we received a bill for 96 euros. Let me say that platter was a chicken Schnitzel and the other chicken wings which was accompanied by a scant offering of grilled vegetables and chips. Needless to say the food... More

Avoid, don't go there... It's a tourist trap!!! We only had two small bowls of fruit and two drinks (45 euro). Service charge 10%.

Avoid at all costs. Too expensive. Average food. Ordered a milk shake, water bottle, two snacks and the bill crossed 100 Euros. No doubts, great location but beyond expensive. Don't think, they have listed their prices for this very reason.

This place was so overpriced and the food was absolutely horrible. I can make better pasta! It tasted like cardboard; even cheese couldn't help it. We literally had to force feed ourselves to finish it. Worst place to eat.

Please stay away: One coffee and a pastry cost 25 euros. When I asked how this could be the case, the waiter said that "these are the prices". Of course there were no prices posted anywhere. Obviously a tourist trap..
