Surprisingly quality food for an airport terminal, but then again, this is Italy - not Ohio, right? While awaiting a return flight to the U.S., I had a couple of delicious slices of breakfast pizza & a sort of dessert scone that came as part of a combo meal, all for a very reasonable price. Seating was a challenge, as... More

Chef Express (or Gusto) at Rome airport is a wonderful lunch place, popular with the Italian airport staff (which is always a good sign) and a bit hidden from the main floor. We had excellent fettuccine (pasta of the day), the service was friendly and fast and it's calmer and less crowded than the restaurants downstairs.

This was comfortable and convenient for a quick and tasty snack with efficient service. Not cheap for what we had but it`s an airport cafe. It is what it is and we had no complaints.

Ordered 2 x teas and 2 x plain bagles. Asked simply for perhaps a bit of butter or jam as the very plain bagle was not nice. I asked for maybe a slice of ham or cheese for flavour. Lady just laughed at me as if I was asking for 100 euro. Found her very ignorent. Even after I returned... More

Good for a quick lunch. Not very cheap, but excellent coffee and very good sandwiches. A bit hectic, as it is on the airport, of course.

I tried to order a pasta dish here and was told by the staff to sit at table and someone would take our order. We waited half an hour going up for times asking to order and being told the same thing. We ended up paying for our water and leaving, even in that simple transaction the staff were super... More

It is a place to get some food in the airport. The food is fair which is proofed by the large number of airport employees eating at the place. The place is busy especially when the airport staff has a break. Bit pricy but it is a airport.

The best Risotto with scampi I ever tasted and half a bottle of Castelli Romani. Nothing better to help you pass the time waiting for your flight. A smooth and fast self service, clean tables. Worth it!

We had 3 hours before boarding our flight and decided to have lunch at their all-you-can-eat buffet. It was worth it. While it's no Vegas buffet, there were enough dishes to please everyone and the quality was good. It was quiet and not too busy.
