“Tourist trap”
Reviewed 18 August 2013

Beware, it's a rip-off! €5 for a small can of Sprite. But they gave me the WiFi key, so if you would like to surf for free - here it is: 0UhCr1J0cRqdvdgbhk5T4iuE

“Ok for a quick lunch”
Reviewed 14 May 2013

Ok for a quick lunch and cold beer after a very long morning at the Vatican. Took a while to be served but drinks arrived in good time as did food. Bathroom facilities need attention but no option after 4 hrs on Vatican tour.

“Gone are the days....”
Reviewed 20 February 2013

Gone are the days when you could taste the famed "mela stregata" ice cream...today's version is a poor copy. Pity, as it was great. Today this place has lost its flavour....too bad

“Terrible food, poor service.”
Reviewed 14 September 2012

When we came to Rome, we thought that wherever you go, the food will be good anyway. However, visit to this place destroyed this myth..
The place is situated near the busy street, so it was very noisy, but the prices looked attractive. We ordered pizza and lasagna. It took at least 20 minutes before we got our food - usually it's okay, but when we tasted it, it was something like heated up frozen pizza and lasagna from Tesco. And probably products from Tesco would taste better, not speaking about the difference in price.
If you are expecting to get proper cuisine try to avoid this place.

“Rip Off”
Reviewed 14 May 2012

Put simply we were charged 24 euros for 2 small bowls of inferior icecream and two cans of coke...........

This was not a salubrious establishment and therefore the price is not reflective.

The experience here constiutes 10mintues of our lives and 24 euros of our earnings that me and my girlfriend will never get back... Rome is an amazing destination and the pair of us had a great time, tempered only by this experience.
