"Order from Menu after seeing price" Rome Tourist Trap Tip by abi_maha

Rome Tourist Traps: 296 reviews and 190 photos

Most restaurant are out to rip you off! Do not be trapped by a menu outside that quotes lesser prices only to be told inside they do not serve the listed item and instead order a pasta that s not listed. We were cheated this way!! 40E for a handful of pasta was the price they charged us!!!!
if you decide to buy anything at all buy it at the super markets!

Fun Alternatives: Buy most of carry food and water from super market. Adjoining the termini there is a SPAR super market where you can buy water (1.5 L) for as little as 0.21 E as opposed to buying it on the streets even for 1.5 E!! A ten pack of chocolate croissant for 2 E is an excellent substitute for break fast, and buy coffee at express counters, saves you atleast 1 E!!

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
