We grabbed a coffee from here while waiting for a Vatican tour, we knew the place would be expensive and not very good and they didn't disappoint. We had a tea and coffee, it was really expensive but the best bit was the frown on...More

Everyone has said it. Wish I read reviews first! They are robbing tourists. 12$ pastry. They do not post prices. Lesson learned. Hopefully other Vatican visitors see this post and avoid this cafe.

I had some gelato inside and a seafood spaghetti. It is definitely a tourist trap since it is located right opposite the Vatican Museum, but that doesn't necessarily means it's bad. The gelato were pretty tasty and given the portion they served, I thought the...More

This is near the meeting place for Vatican tours. You get there early and realize that you need breakfast or coffee. This is the closest while you are waiting. Very expensive and not that good. Try and eat before your tour or bring your own...More

Not only is the Cafe convenient, the food and service are excellent. Our party enjoyed various entrees and all reported excellence. We started with a salad which was fresh and good. I had the lasagna and was delighted. You will enjoy your meal here.

If we weren't so buggered from walking around vatican for 3 hours I would have gone elsewhere. Overpriced food, Chips were soggy and horrible. Service was pretty poor also.

They take advantage of being a meeting point for Vatican tours. Try to find somewhere else before you get near the Vatican Museum. You will pay 2 or 3 times going rate for everything. Rude and unpleasant....avoid this place!

We thought we should have our breakfast before entering to Vatican museum. We didn't realize they will rip our pocket. Totally misleading menu. As I remember, we ordered a single baguette and just a cup of coffee. The price they charged finally was huge and...More

Has this place ever been reported to the relevant authorities? (they don't display prices they don't have menus and only accept cash) it paints an unmistakable picture.

MA.. Per quanto riguarda la mia recensione è verissima, e la risposta alla sua domanda gliela devono i gestori del ristorante e non i clienti. Cordiali saluti.
