“Low quality and expensive”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013

For Italians a "panino" is something more that two slices of old bread with a sad and lonely slice of ham. Apparently at this cafe they don't know this basic thing.
I went there because I remembered the times when Cadillac Cafe was a meeting point for students offering delicious food, great coffee and, sometimes, even nice photo expositions. Now the place and the owners have changed and we can definitely see the difference. The bar is cheaply decorated, the service is rude, panini are the worst choice you can make if you are hungry and poor like I am ;)
I also saw the "pizza menu" and, believe me, you don't want to ruin your expectations about italian pizza with something like that.
Seriously, who wants to spend around 12 euros for three ugly panini and water, when ten steps away you have the food's paradise (go straight on the same side of the street you will find an "alimentari shop" that is awesome: typical and genuine products, awesome panini and lots of smiles).
Per gli italiani: semplicemente non andateci, i panini sembrano quelli del pranzo a sacco della gita delle elementari, con la differenza che li pagherete quanto in un ristorante gourmet. Piuttosto, se continuate a dritto sullo stesso lato della strada in 20 passi troverete il paradiso: un alimentari con le cose più gustose, tipiche e a buon prezzo di tutta la zona.
