As gift stores go this is above average with very reasonable prices. I was surprised at how little 'tat' or Pope on rope bars of soap there were. Make sure to build at least 30-45 mins of your day to check it out.

The people who serve here does not really want to work. The pizza we got was lame. I wanted to give a 1 star but they did give us our exact change. It is just another place to eat.

This place is an essential stop after walking around the Vatican museums, if only for a cold drink. It is interesting because at the coffee bar area you have to pay for your food before you get it, so you go to the counter, see what you want to eat, go to the till, tell them, pay for your food...

Pizza and Sandwich bar, terrible Pizza, worst we have ever eaten, cold and hard, difficult to eat and overpriced. Also, poor services there.

This is not a restaurant. It's a canteen. And it's an absolute rip off. The portions (esp the pasta) are small and not filling at all. Yet, the prices are much higher than an affordable eatery outside of the museum. BUT if you have not prepared any food beforehand, this may be your only option. If so, choose the burger,... More

The high value of my review is related to this kind of restaurant. It's impressive the modern organisation that don't permit improvisation but it keeps a human relation with guest and staff. The quality of food is fresh and good. I think this could be a case history to be studied by other organisations.

The food is one of the worst I taste. The sweets the same. Coffee is an expensive thing with no taste given in a plastc cup

The Cafeteria, Restaurant and Pizzeria looks like a school cantine. I wasn't convince to buy anything. Do not buy the Full Italian Menu (18 euro) because you will regrete the decision.

We had booked a meal on internet. € 18.- The place was a cafeteria, self service, extremely noisy, the food mediocre. Please rather walk down to the garde cafe. Do not book this meal

Ok.. This was the worst food we ate in Rome. We spent 35 euros and we threw 75% of the food. You'd better wait to finish your visit and eat somewhere else. Anyway, if you still want to eat something here, choose fries and hotdog.
