70 euros for steak I wouldn't give my dog. Don't even think about it. There is definitely some sort of "bait and switch" scam going on involving receipts as well. Just keep on walking - the cost here is well above the 'tourist tax' for eating near the Vatican.

The food wasn't too bad. Some hearty choices if you don't mind the food that is prepared in the morning and re-heated for you in the afternoon. But be prepared to pay. PAY A LOT. eg. A fruit smoothie costs 18 euros. Overall, BEST TO BE AVOIDED.

Very little else to add from all the 1* comments - total rip off ! My only advise to fellow victims is to try and not let it ruin what has probably been an amazing day spent in and around the Vatican. We were in Rome with wonderful friends and every time we paid for a meal or a round... More

We went for a rest after being in the Vatican museum for about 5 hours. We ordered 2 cups of English tea, and 2 muffins. No prices, and we expected it to be a little more expensive, being so close to the Vatican......... but when our bill came, I was beyond shocked! 48€!!!!!!!!!!!! What an absolute rip off!

When you see a restaurant close to a touristic place, you know its prices will be higher than those not so close to the attractions; nevertheless, this particular establishment goes beyond what one could accept. As other reviewers have already written, they do not give menus to the customers, and the dessert menus on the tables do not have a... More

Me & my friend went there and firstly, we were told about the specials without any mention of the price. Secondly, they got our order wrong. Thirdly, they totally ripped us off. A caffe latte is 8 euros, coke zero (the small can) 6.5 and a piece of chicken with literally a cup of pasta 35 euros. All in all,... More

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.
