After walking through all the museum rooms we needed a sit down & a coffee. We were pleased with the prices here considering it is in a major tourist spot. The coffees were really good and only €1.50. We didn't have any food but what...More

We dropped in here at the end of the day for a quick snack so the muffin and cold juice were refreshing but seriously overpriced. I can’t really comment on the staff as they didn’t say a word as it was near going home time....More

Quality of food, hospitality of staff and prices were all appalling and a really poor experience compared to the rest of the Vatican. My advice would be to eat elsewhere if you have the option.

The food here (pasta) was excellent and I cannot fault it, but I had to buy three portions for two grown up children, because the portions are too small. I mean starter size small!

Terrible experience!! Horrible service and extremely rude staff with no respect at all to the customers. It took ages to be served and the food was disgusting. Just don't bother. There are plenty of places around you could eat.
