Ok.. This was the worst food we ate in Rome. We spent 35 euros and we threw 75% of the food. You'd better wait to finish your visit and eat somewhere else. Anyway, if you still want to eat something here, choose fries and hotdog.

Unfortunately I also just read this review after my visit. This is really a BAD - Everything. I you just need a snack there is also a café there with pizza slices etc. I did not try it but wish I had went for that instead. It was much cheaper and looked much better.

..the Vatican Museums are a journey through time, culture, faith, art, treasures...and journeys are draining...that's what cafe's are for. There's a decent selection of over-the-counter foods and drinks although seating space may be all taken up depending on how many hungry others there are. We began our voyage here and were fueled enough to last the next 5 hours. Nice... More

This restaurant is situated in the Vatican Museum and although it is not luxurious it offers decent food.

Read the reviews. Unfortunately we booked the online ticket with ' full Italian menu in restaurant' then read trio adviser, and thought it can't be that bad. Believe me it is. The online ticket for entry is a must, we got in, in under 10 minutes, with a huge queue outside for pay on the door. We tried to change... More

Good selection and the coffee from the cafe was excellent. Fresh fruit salad very good and an excellent selection to give lots of choice vas you might expect prices are not cheap.

We reserved two lunches in this 'restaurant' with our ticket booking on-line. The cast was 18 euros each. In short we arrived in a self service cafeteria with not a clue as to what to do. A nice lady behind a counter saw our bewilderment and took out voucher and proceeded to load a try with plastic cutlery, plastic wrapped... More

Well, possibly there is worse somewhere else, but this would be the worst meal we've had by far, in the world, for that price. We made the mistake of buying a Vatican Restaurant meal online with our tickets for 18 Euros each, thinking this would be a lovely romantic thing to do. First problem: It's not a restaurant - that...

We had a slab of pizza and drink. They had sold out of most things so not much choice. The pizza was ok and at least a sensible price, given the location
