Is a touristic cafe, poor service, expensive and not an unforgettable coffee. Four cappuccinos, two orange juice, and two brioches €29,00 Is Europe, is Italy, is a nice place but they have a cosmic price!!

Agreed, you don't always know what you are going to get when you just stop somewhere...Food was good. Service was good. We have no complaints. It was nice to stop after a long day of travel and walking through SG. We have no complaints.

We were looking for food for our children and for me, gluten free meal. They have a rich menu so everyone can find what to eat. I ate gluten free spaghetti, it was delicious!

Busy shop in Piazza Cisterna serving many dishes. We came in so my wife could have her gelato fix. Gelato was good, service not so much as the service concentrated more on the outdoor diners. Sorry, just another impatient New Yorker.

We stayed at the Cisterna Restaurant and enjoyed a couple of quick stops at the bar. Friendly and efficient staff and a good physical plant all helped make our visits there to be first class. We would certainly go back.

Great spot outside on the pavement overlooking the square. Food was good and fresh, service was efficient. Considering how busy it was a very pleasant experience and we'll priced.

We visited this place for a quick bite to eat, the waiter was obviously unhappy with his job, the food was ok, but I really would not come back! It is so easy to smile and it doesn't cost a penny!! Grazie!!
