Have to say the food and drinks were ok, not bad but for the price I would have wanted better. We had 2 bowls of assorted salad, 2 little deserts a small beer and a small wine €45.

Try to sit down later in the evening after rush hour. Most of the tourist has left and it is gorgeous when the sun begins to set and the lights come up. Our waitress Valentina was really nice!

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.

I thought the food was great, and was eating with an Italian from Bologna (Italians take their food seriously) especially this one...and he loved it! 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 ;)

Thank soooma
