Just a perfect place to have a refreshments with a view of the gorgeous Coloseo. Easy rule for almost all restaurants nearby sights: don't eat, just drink:)

Overall this was a mixed lunch. The food was really good, I had the mushroom and Parma ham pizza and it was lovely. Some of our party had the bruschetta and loved them. But the service was quite poor and kept getting distracted in the middle of taking out order and the toilets where disgusting

We had a long walk through Rome when we decided to sit for a drink and some grub. We timed things correctly as happy hour was about to begin. The drinks were good and the buffet of food hit the spot. The amount of food was endless but it did lack taste. Like most buffets, it's a lot of cheap... More

Only positive about this place is the location. There aren't a lot of other choices.. Service is just bad (uninterested, not polite,..), prices are way too high (€5 for a coke, €5 for cappuccino, €3 for a normal coffee that wasn't even worth €1), toilet was very dirty

Great food, and romantic view at the famous Colosseum, had a spicy hamburger and I tasted good. The food prices was ok but the drinks was a little more expensive than other places. And the staff was serviceminded and very polite. Recommended

This place is a scam: €6 for a small size to go coffee ? €4 for a small bottle of coke. This place takes advantage of people just because is one of the few places around the Collesseum and people fall there like bees. Definitely to avoid. This place puts Rome hospitality to shame.
