Stopped by for a Lemmon slash and ice cream plate. Charged us 41.5 euro. Crazy price compared other places we visited in Rome

We did what every other person on here did, we didn't see a menu or a price list, we asked for a couple of slices of pizza and were surprised to get chips and salad as well. The salad was brown on the edges and...More

I should've followed my guts! The place is near the Saint Peter Square, but not many people in the restaurant. I thought, oh maybe because I come here before lunchtime. Inside, there were only 1 or 2 tables filled and none of them eating. Only...More

If i could give this place 0 stars, I would! This place deserves to burn down for the way they rip people off. MUST AVOID. $9 for a freaking coffee.

The most overpriced and overrated place you could belly up to a table at. KEEP WALKING!!!! Food was OK but the price to food ratio is 10 to 1 = a simple meal was 10-times what the cost should be. I'd suggest eating here if...More

The problem is that, having spent hours in the morning marvelling at the Vatican's treasures, one is ready for lunch and a rest and will not have checked the reviews and comments about this place. Beware! The reviews tell the truth! Go somewhere else and...More

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

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Why is this site now only showing 11 reviews and not the 526 it says have been made! This latest development has only happened today. Why are the other hundreds of 1* reviews no longer available? No matter what I put into Google, it now only shows a few reviews . . . . . all apart from mine . . . . are reasonable and the 53 pages showing 90% terrible reviews are no longer there! Why? Anyone know? My review, along with many others, was to warn unsuspecting visitors to stay away. Is it possible that the management of this cafe have complained and 'pulled strings'?

Has anyone from Tripadvisor or the Rome Tourist board done anything about this place and the awful way they are treating and fleecing unsuspecting visitors? 99% of the reviews are complaints about the outrageous charges they present. There are no menus or prices on display so, the people are trapped into whatever charges the management choose to try. The pity is that folk go in without knowing about these unanimous complaints. Can anyone stop this? J.
