Simply avoid this place. They rely on your honour not to ask for menu prices. I will be writing to the Roman Tourist Board to make them aware of how this cafe is ripping off tourist! Isn't the owner ashamed? What a RIP OFF

Quintessential Tourist TRAP - Overpriced. In all fairness; the food was good. That being stated, the bill was 72 Euro which I almost died when it came because we had only three sandwiches with french fries, one pasta plate, one bottle of water, one beer, one desert and two coffees. Recommend to NOT eat anywhere near the Vatican because on... More

Do not go here. The food was really, really bad and waaaaay over priced. Yuck! A bad sandwich, gross fries, bad salad for myself, bad piece of pizza, gross fries, and salad plus two glasses of wine for €57. TERRIBLE!!!

The biggest rip-off ever! I asked for menu with prices, none... we should have walked away. Our breakfast which did not even fill us up cost €72.60! They still charged us for the bread we did not order, which they took away because we did not touch it. I have never been so angry at any establishment to the point... More

ABSOLUTE RIP-OFF - after weeks in Rome we stopped by chance here for a bite after the earthquake and simply asked fora cup of tea and fired eggs - No menu on the table should have triggered our doubts but this is obviously too close to the Vatican and catches only tourists ( the cops stood at the bar and...

Went here and ordered a fanta and a Grande beer. When we asked to see the drinks menu we were asked quite forcefully what we wanted to drink. We were presented with a bill for €48. These people are no better than common thieves; absolutely disgraceful. Please go elsewhere. They should be closed down for the disgusting way they rip... More

Yesterday, after a visit to the Vatican, I went there thinking that it could be a nice place to eat. They have all the food in the vitrin, without prices, but it looked quite cheap, nothing special. The food was even worse as it looked, my 4 years old nephew can cook better than that!! Anyway, for this quality I... More

I'm not saying that what they serve is bad. The cappuccinos were pretty tasty, average, but should I pay 16€ only in coffee? When our 35€ invoice arrived we claimed that they were stilling us during day time, that no where those prices were written. The cashier "corrected" it and we ended with 30,80€ less in our wallet, with a... More

So, let's just say In the first instance , the food was ok, nothing exceptional but a pleasant lunch. My main objection is the set up and prices. We arrived at the cafe at lunch time, and it was exceptionally busy. We noted that this was a self service place, but we were then told by a member of staff... More

Staying in Vatican / Borgo

Neighbourhood Profile
Vatican / Borgo
Frocked priests, colorful Swiss Guards, insistent souvenir shop owners, flag-waving tour guides, and pilgrims from around the world. This is the Vatican and Borgo, Rome's most recognized neighbourhood which acts as Vatican City's front yard. Aside from the souvenir boutiques and a few food spots, the only business conducted here is papal. In the daytime, the tiny medieval sector bustles with holy activity, as visitors vie for elbow room, or stand in line for a visit. Once the sun sets, the neighbourhood is transformed into a quiet and picturesque hamlet.
