This was the one open place that I've found open after Messe of Christmas. I ate a Margherita Pizza (nothing special) and 2 soft drinks... 20 euros!!! Wow!!

A few steps from here you will find something else - anything better than here. A coffee and pastry costs less than 3 euro in Rome, but here they charged me 12 for same on a paper napkin on a rickety metal table on the sidewalk. Their reaction to my disappointment was obnoxious, tossing the menu in front of me (about 20 pages) telling me in no uncertain terms to read it and weep. Three of the staff got involved in telling me in Italian that it was my problem if I couldn't read it and they don't care if I go somewhere else. Even if you want to be insulted with your meal... go somewhere else.

My wife and I (both 50+) needed a quick beer in the late afternoon. I speak virtually no Italian. Throughout our holiday we had been drinking small beers (usually 20cl or 30cl) and large beers (40cl or 50cl). We sat at a table on the street and asked for a small and large beer. I was shocked when they brought out a small beer and a litre of beer. I knew it was a con but what could I say? It was undeniably a large beer. I decided to make out that it was not a problem. Part way through drinking this, a few crisps appeared. The bill was astronomical (including a high charge for the crisps). I've spent less on a full meal. Watch out for this place.
