Good coffee, tasty croissants. Barista spoke english well and was friendly. Seems like its popular with the locals.

I went there today after visiting the Vatican. There was hardly anyone inside and the staff were slow and unfriendly. The food was okay, nothing special. If you're a tourist visiting Rome for the first time, you MIGHT like it. I don't recommend this place if you're looking for a quick bite or even a beer.

I went in for a quick bite and what I got was a panini burned black on both sides whith salami that tasted like plastic. Unfriendly staff. Definitely a no go zone!

This is a cute restaurant, the staff is nice and so on... The bad thing was really the food. It was average. I ordered a pizza a they brought me a pre-made one. A friend of mine ordered a lasagna and they had the nerve to bring it the original recipient (something made of paper or plastic). We did't even had the right to eat a real plate.
Me and my friend payed 9.50€ for a menu, and we had the right to 1 (small) pizza, 1 (small) lasagna and one drink. We shared the drink. If we had ordered one more drink we would have to pay 2 more euros.

PS: the bathroom didn't even have toillet paper.
