“Good Selections for a Quick Lunch at a Reasonable Price”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

We have eaten at the Chef Express several times over the years. The quality of the food is fresh and good, there is always a variety of pastas, and a few meat and chicken choices, along with cooked vegetables, salads and desserts. The prices are fair. On top of that, you have an amazing view of an ancient Roman wall from the dining room window. It's a great cafeteria. Eat where the Romans eat!

“Our favourite!”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

We had our first breakfast in Rome at the Bar Chef Express. The coffee and the pastries are very good. They are also inexpensive. We couldn't speak Italian and the staff didn't speak much English, so we simply pointed at what we wanted. It gets pretty crowded in the morning but we love the coffee and pastries that we kept coming back even though we had breakfast on subsequent days in our B&B.

“Great restaurant”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

This was a great place to eat as they had many options all home cooked. You can pick what ever you want from many options and you are not limited to a menu. There was not much service as it was sort of buffet style but what service there is was pretty good. The place was clean and the cashiers were OK. The food was excellent as there were chefs at each station preparing different dishes (pasta,rice, roast, salads, deserts, fruit). The cooks sometimes not to friendly, but I would recommend.

“Great place for lunch, and excellent value.”
Reviewed June 3, 2012

This, being part of the Termini station complex, might seem the most unlikely venue for a decent lunch. However, you will find this place full of railway and other public service employees, and locals. The choice and quality is very good and the prices are very cheap. The tomatoes and fruit taste fantastic, the pasta is fresh and tasty and everything else is great. A great place to go for a quick, decent and cheap lunch.
