Service is quite slow here- they need to speed things up or get more help- there are lots of people trying to eat! The wait was so long at each place for hot food, all we could get was a cold salad. Hire more people!

The only bad meal of our 4 day trip to Rome. Had burger which was grey in colour, bland and didn't even taste like meat! Poor value for money. Would not eat here again

As gift stores go this is above average with very reasonable prices. I was surprised at how little 'tat' or Pope on rope bars of soap there were. Make sure to build at least 30-45 mins of your day to check it out.

The people who serve here does not really want to work. The pizza we got was lame. I wanted to give a 1 star but they did give us our exact change. It is just another place to eat.

The high value of my review is related to this kind of restaurant. It's impressive the modern organisation that don't permit improvisation but it keeps a human relation with guest and staff. The quality of food is fresh and good. I think this could be...More

The food is one of the worst I taste. The sweets the same. Coffee is an expensive thing with no taste given in a plastc cup

The Cafeteria, Restaurant and Pizzeria looks like a school cantine. I wasn't convince to buy anything. Do not buy the Full Italian Menu (18 euro) because you will regrete the decision.
