    by gwened Written Sep 3, 2013
    Gran Caffe Cavour

    Well why not have lunch at the beautiful square Cavour, just behing the justice palace, around the corner from the castle of san angelo, and on the side of the theater cinema adriano, overlooking the great statue of Cavour.

    this is purely local food , with great pasta, pizza and great terrace view, the service was fast too and nice,the price just what you want.All great recommended and I will have others come here as is good.

    Open every day from 12h30 to 14h30 ,and from 19h to 23h. Pasta dishes from 8 €!
    Dont let the reviews kid you, this is a simple place with locals and real food, nothing fancy and its good

    Favorite Dish: calzone, pasta with mushrooms, and pizzas, all with great moratti beers. all good and at good price of 15€ per person.

  • Gran Caffè Cavour: BEWARE !!!

    by iren.k Written Aug 24, 2011

    IL PADRONE Fabio Barbogli, è il motivo di quello che sta succedendo in questo locale. Con i soldi di tutti i clienti ingannati si è fatta la Bentley e la villa. In questo momento per tutte le cose che vanno storto il proprietario ha una causa di lavoro ed è sotto l'attenzione della GF, NAS, Isp. di Lavoro, PM. Mi auguro che la verità uscira fuori.

    Favorite Dish: Beware, here is a trap for your money !

    Gran Caffe: Welcome to Roma

    by nyonnetti Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We went here on our first night in Rome with some friends to enjoy drinks and bread/olive oil. The outdoor seating was perfect to enjoy the atmosphere of Rome. The waiter was incredibly nice and accomodating- it was a great start to our vacation!

    Favorite Dish: Wine, beer, bread, olive oil-don't need much else!

    They do have a menu- see website.

  • Gran Caffe Cavour: Get ready to be ripped off!

    by EbeaConf Written Feb 24, 2011

    OMG, these people use every sleazy trick in the book to take your money. We were charged 52 euros for a very ordinary meal for two, about double the price compared to other surrounding restaurants. Don't be fooled by the menu prices, you will be charged much more. For instance, they ask you if you want cheese on your dish, and then add 3 euros for a sprinkling of Parmesan. They will cajole you into the expensive wines, and at the end add a big fat cover charge for god knows what. And like the other reviewer said, if you complain you get taken to a big goon (the "manager") to slug it out. This place left a bad taste in my mouth.

    Favorite Dish: The food is OK, but nothing special.

  • Gran Caffe Cavour: Be Careful with Gran Caffe Cavour!!!

    by Alcepulcro Updated Feb 17, 2010

    Be Careful with the adjective 'Gran' from Gran Caffe Cavour. 'Gran' comes from the big prices they earn when you sit in their tables: items can cost up to 5 TIMES!!!! more than the prices that are displayed on the wall. And don't think about asking for the claiming form. They don't have them and even they take out a big man to frighten you.

    Places like this give a bad impression of such a beautiful city as Rome.

    Favorite Dish: None of them.

    Grand Caffe Ristorante Bar & Pizzeria: Close to the Colosseum

    by joiwatani Written May 18, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The restaurant is just at the opposite of the main entrance of the colosseum ( I can't say at back of the colosseum because it is circular, dah!). If you are coming from the main entrance of the colosseum, you loop to the left to get into the road and right again going up overlooking somewhat of the colosseum.

    The restaurant is close to a bus stop, too. This is the closest restaurant that you can really spot at the colosseum. If you head to the colosseum and get hungry touring around later on, just drop by at this restaurant at lunchtime. They don't open early though.

    Favorite Dish: I actually didn't go inside the restaurant because I was at the colosseum very early in the morning when the sun was just rising! So, the restaurant was still close.

    I love going around the colosseum very early because I can have the colosseum by myself. At that time, I saw only early joggers and some residents who are up and about catching the bus going to their work.

    Gran Caffé Felixiani: Roma Speziale is a must!

    First of all this -officially a caffé- was the next restaurant/café/pub to us.

    The waiters were well dressed (black trousers, black vests, black bowties and white skirts. Yet the place was not formal at all, but their dressing made you feel welcomed.

    We used the place mainly for drinks before or after going out dining or having fun. It was open until 02:00.

    Despite the presence of the main railway station Termini the place was safe as the Carabinieris patrolled the area and even the bar every 5 minutes or so.

    Favorite Dish: The "Roma Speziale" - drink the guys made for us! I wondered why the guys laughed so much, and later on they told their secret: the drink they made consisted of several different strong liquors and was invented by themselves.

    The sense of humour of the staff and the customer service oriented guys were great. You always got a smile or some crazy humour which was always making me feel good.

    We were there at lunchtime and starving. On the road of Santa Maria Maggiore we found this nice cafee. Prices were reasonable and especially their pasta was great. They have icecream, desserts and sandwiches too. Interior was bright and very clean. LCD tv's on the wall. Portions are not so much but very delicious.

    Favorite Dish: Pasta and desserts

    Gran Caffe: Our free breakfast

    by EllenH Written Nov 28, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This breakfast was free, included with our room at the Pop inn hostel. I had read that the chocolate croissants were to die for so thats what I went for. It was very good and so was my cappucino. The place was extraordinarily busy with what seemed to be locals but this could have been it close proximity to the termini.

    Favorite Dish: The chocolate croissants were delicious but so were all the others my husband and son had. The coffees were quite good also.

    Collesium

    We found this nice restuarant right across the street from the collesium.

    We sat outside and had our dinner with drinks while watching the sunset and Collesium.

    Awesome!

    Favorite Dish: The food was okay but the atmosphere was the best!
