Bar Tritone Rome Reviews
Good lunch at Bar Tritone Aug 01, 2010
Bar Tritone is a nice little place located very near to Piazza Barberini. It was also located close to our apartment. On our last day, we didn't want to go that far away, so we chose Bar Tritone for a lunch break.
They have a good assortment of sandwiches, with all kinds of toppings. The sandwiches are on display and ready to go. I chose a sandwich with tuna salad, my friend a sandwich with ham and cheese. We had to wait quite a bit before we eventually got them, but this was because the sandwiches still had to be toasted. The sandwiches tasted good, as did the cappuccinos, but it was on the edge of expensive. It cost about 20 euros in total.
The staff is friendly, but a bit on the slow side. The interior is also nice, with little watercolor paintings on the walls of all of Rome's tourist attractions.
Although it was not busy, we were a bit rushed by the employees. So I would recommend Bar Tritone for a short lunch or coffee break, but not for long stays.

Great coffee - but very pricey Mar 01, 2009
This place is inviting, bright, cheerful... and the location, close to Piazza Barberini, Bernini's Baroque Triton fountain and the Galleria Nazionale d'arte Antica place it right in the path of tired, hungry or thirsty tourists!
Like so many of the little bars all around Rome it's decorated with lots of bottles lined up around and behind the bar, some strategically placed mirrors, plenty of woodwork and has a little area with tables where you can sit down and enjoy whatever you order. But, keep in mind that prices increase significantly when you move from the bar to a table. It also has gruff, yet friendly waiters.
It was a perfect place for us to get out of the rain.
But, once you’re in, if you're not careful they’re going to get some serious cash out of you!!! The coffee with milk was excellent, but at 5€ a cup, it should be!! This must be the most expensive cup of coffee I have ever seen!
We tried a pastry with cheese and a fruit tart – everything was really good, but outlandishly expensive! 20 Euros for two coffees and two pastries! If you're on a budget, beware!!
