It is attached to the ancient walls of St Giovanni in Laterano, in the shopping area. It is café-lounge very popular among the young people. It has a large seating area and a nice veranda outside. We stopped for breakfast. Very good coffee and sweets...and pastries too. Courteous service, nice and welcoming environment. If you want to use table service, there is an extra fee to pay, and maybe before you decide, it's better to ask. Try it.More

I had it for take-away. There was such a wonderful choice of pastries, and they are nice, but the service could be a bit more friendly. This little place looks like an oasis of happiness in the middle of busy San Giovanni, so those working...there should keep it that way! But maybe it was just a bad day, it happens.More

Stopped here for a quick meal. Best feature is the ambience and unique location, between the San Giovanni Metro and the Basilica of San Giovanni. We found the Pizza so satisfying -- and big enough for two! Beer is very good too. Prices are reasonable....The service is friendly but a little hit-and-miss, in keeping with the informality of this bar/cafe/ take-out eatery.More

Good place to sit and chat! Exactly next to the San Giovanni Metro Station! So you can grab a bite before or after using the metro! Very convenient, tasty and decently priced. You can try the Tiramisu or the cheesecake there! VERY LOCAL

We came in here attracted by their window display. We ended up buying some cookies. We were about to go sit on this patio but there are so many smokers out there. I'm not a smoker & can't stand the smell so we just ended...walking to the basilica San Giovanni Laterano. The cookies were delicious though. They had an English speaker so that was nice. We had to pay first for the cookies & then they gave us the food.More

Avoid at all costs, this place looks great from the outside but that is about All... ordered the ragu pasta which was just cut up sausage with spiral pasta and cut up tomato and the gnocghetti which was just mac and cheese sausage with gnochi....The biggest problem was the pizza, it was that hard it could’ve put a hole in your throat. Very hard to believe we are in Italy..... do not waste your time.More

We walked around the holy steps in and out of the Basilica looking for some food underneath the old wall and found this bistro. We had cookies and a beer only but everyone was so nice and we had a great experience. I love the...wine/sugar cookies. We also had the nut cookies, chocolate ones,,,IDK but 2 of us had 7 and skipped the pizza and food. Sooooo good. Come in like we did and end enjoy.More

Good start for the day with cappuccino, fresh juice and some pastries. It's a little pricey, but everything was tasty and the location is very nice.
