“Good lunch close to the ancient sites”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

We stopped off for lunch here after a tour of the Roman Forum and the Colosseum. Being close to the ancient sites, Capitoline Hill and Alter of the Fatherland it makes a good places to stop off. We visited this cafe twice, once for lunch and once for a coffee. I found the food to be good for a touristic cafe near the main sights and couldn't complain. We had a nice pizza, glass of wine and a coffee for 20 euros for 2 people. Coming from London I wouldn't complain too much about that price!

“DON"T SIT DOWN”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

My wife and I popped in here while walking around Rome because we needed a place to sit down and have a cappuccino. The prices on the board all looked reasonable and they had boards outside advertising pizza and drink specials for 8 euros or so. Cappuccino prices on the board were 1,30.
We sat down ordered two cappuccinos and a cookie. In typical American fashion we drank the coffee in about 2 minutes, ate the cookie and were on our way. The bill for these two coffees and one cookie was 15 euros, which included a 6 euro "Cupeto" which is Italian for "Tourist Charge"!!! Even after gouging us good they wouldn't let me use my credit card because the bill was under 20 euros. What a complete scam. This is the kind of place that gives Italy a bad reputation.

Innanzitutto parlare di truffa e un po' pesante se non si è certi, rischiando anche di essere querelati, comunque per quanto riguarda la carta di credito c'è scritto sia nel menù che nella reception che viene accettata per importi superiori ai 20,00€ per gli importi inferiori accettiamo il bancomat, riguardo i prezzi sono ben evidenziati nel menù .

Per cortesia Voglia avere la correttezza di spiegare perché, la gente non debba sedersi, almeno le persone che leggono hanno una comunicazione ben precisa, e poi forse non conosce bene i fast food

“Great lunch spot with fabulous tasting pasta and pizza”
Reviewed 4 August 2013 via mobile

We were looking for a place to eat and rest our legs after 4hours of Colosseum and Forum visit. By accident we found this place hidden on the corner of via del plebiscito and vicolo Doria. Nothing fancy but amazing pizza , pasta and melon with prosciutto. 5 of us with drinks for 90 eur. I'll keep looking but after 2 days Rome this was the best food yet.

“Horrible service, prices very high, quality not too good”
Reviewed 22 May 2013

Unfortunatelly the location is the only plus of this caffe.
Service terrible. The waiter welcomed us with the rude shout "Umbrellas outside!". He was whistelling all the time and took him about 10 minutes to come to our table to take the order.
Prices much too high for the quality. You pay 10eur for pizza that have the cheese put on in when it is already taken from the oven (the cheese was cold and not melty).
The toilette was dirty, I felt disguised when walked in there.
Not recommend to anyone.

Leggendo la sua recensione, non voglio tirar la molto a lungo, ricordo bene il suo tavolo il giorno e forse anche l'ora, specialmente quando pretendeva di non pagare 2 primi, che guarda caso i piatti erano pulitissimi,il solo perché accanto al suo tavolo c'erano 2 coppie con dei bimbi, a iniziato a reclamare il tutto, e questo non è giusto, un po' di umiltà.
