Average offerings- not good and not bad. We only really had drinks and snacks, prepackaged things. Prices were reasonable.

Quick and not good, but which choice do you have? Only thing is that the prices are high but not as high as expected. Poor quality.

The owner was lovely, actually the whole family made you feel like family and so that makes it extra special! We stopped in for lunch after touring the Vatican. PIZZA IN ROME! A few mentioned...

When you're hungry you'll eat anything and that's what he Vatican had in mind for us to eat ;) Not expansive ! We had to get Diet Coke because Regular Coke was not cold !! Weird line!! Squeezed to the left and running for your life from the right ;)

Don't know about their other food, but their pizza was passable; obviously very little effort put into it.

Visited here on a very hot summer's day. Despite huge crowds, the small distance from the museums seemed to allow a more relaxed atmosphere. Food was good but nothing extraordinary.
