I'm absolutely disgusted in this cafe! My partner and I spent the day exploring Rome. We went past this little cafe, staff were nice and we decided to sit down for some lunch. They had a deal on for pasta or pizza with a drink...More

They have someone lure you in and do not tell you the prices so they can overcharge you by a ridiculous amount! 29 Euros for 2 ice creams - no joke! Worried about my safety if I didn't pay. Read the other reviews.

If you enjoy giving your money away for next to nothing of the services rendered, go here! They will take every last euro in your pocket for a cafe and a donut. Stay clear of this place and never look back.

I checked the prices on the board outside and they looked fine until we got the bill and in very small print at the bottom of the board it said takeaway prices. Total rip off..... I would give it 5 negative stars.

Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighbourhood just
west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as
it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet
for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season,
quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its
cobblestone streets. The neighbourhood supports unique
and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime
residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at
