I recently had a similar experience at the Termini station... driver told me it'd be €25-30 for a fare that normally runs €10, and I refused. I tried to take a photo of his taxi but he and his friends started threatening me. Then I went to the nearest cops I could find and they got annoyed with ME for "making a big deal", and refused to do anything about it. They simply told me to go to the nearest police station and file a report. Moral of the story: don't take taxis at all in Rome if you can avoid it. Just because they're white and "official" doesn't mean you're in the clear. In fact, you're more likely to get ripped off by an official taxi than a gypsy cab.
