Stopped by for bread and cookies, was not disappointed. High quality products and nice service. Prices very good.

After 20 other coffees, pastries and pizzas, this one comes up trumps at all levels for a quick fix, a breakfast and even a late lunch (up to 7pm)

We were in the area between Piazza Navona and Piazza Campo de' Fiori. We were a little tired from too much wandering and we were hungry. So we decided to stop and recharge our energies. We were attracted by the shop windows, overloaded with delicacies,...by a small crowd of tourists and back packers outside, at the entrance, and even more by the many reviews posted by foreign visitors. So we decided to give it a try. We took maybe four baked goods, we tasted them, but none of them was really good. They have huge variety of food, from sweet to savory. It is good for a lunch break while you are walking towards or around the flower market of Campo de' Fiori. Inside there are a little seating area with a table and some chairs. What we got was not bad, it was just ok, everything was average, kind of mediocre products. The service was a little disorganized, but friendly. We really wanted to like this shop. We couldn't believe the enthusiastic reviews that we read on TA. How is it possible? Anyway, given the prices, there is definitely a better choice and not too far, at just one hundred meters, at the bottom left corner of the marketMore

We stopped here with two young kids who were tired and hungry. The staff were exceptional and recommended a range of coffee and pastries, and gave some free samples to our girls. Despite the shop being busy with tourists and locals throughout our visit, they...were very attentive and happy to discuss all the food on offer. Absolutely recommend and wish there was something comparable closer to home!More

Long line. Bad service. Mediocre sandwiches and food. Inside the store: Chaos.Don't have a good memory of the experience. The italian guy behind his little stand to take the money. Inside the store, there was no order to ask for the food or anything. Then,...the food itself... an average 5.More

The window displays are incredible! We called in for breakfast – coffee and a croissant (or cornetti in Rome). The cornetti were 80 cents each but the coffees (Americanos) were €3 each, which we thought a bit steep. There are a few small, tall tables...with stools for eating in. It was fascinating watching customers shopping while we ate our breakfast. Food and drink quality was good and overall the cost was way cheaper than breakfast in the hotel.More

I’m not sure why, but the person serving customers wouldn’t serve my family. 5 minutes of standing directly in front of one of the people taking orders (with a child on my shoulders..) and four other parties served before me. When I asked why he...shrugged and we left. The food looked good, and the place popular, but my family won’t be returning to try again.More

We stopped just for a lunch bite and were impressed with the pizza and sandwiches. The desserts looked great so we went back later that night for dessert. Friendly staff and quick service. Delicious!
