On the strength of previous reviews, we stopped here after a Colosseum tour for drinks and a shared pizza. It did not disappoint.

Very nice and quiet place away from the touristy restaurants near the Colosseo. Very tasty sandwiches and fresh salads. Excellent desserts and a great choice of teas. Very good alternative to usual pasta and pizza dishes.

You will be surprised by finding a place so close to the Coloseum but not touristic at all at the same time. Despite the location, this place is not the typical place for tourists. It is very genuine romans and provides very good food of choice. You will meet mainly romans and the atmosphere is calm, the service is good,... More

Dropped into Cafe Cafe after walking around the Colosseum and Piazza Venezia areas. Lunch was very good with a good selection of food - pizza, pastas and meat dishes. Service was prompt and prices reasonable. Definitely go again.

This place is a cute local cafe near the colosseum. They have an impressive range of teas including some exotic ones. They also had very quick service. We went here on a cold day and the temperature was perfect inside ! Must visit before or after a trip to the colosseum !

We stopped in here after having visited the colosseum. It was freezing and we were tired, Cafe Cafe was just around the corner. Really easy to get too but also very quiet. We went about 4:30pm and there was only a handful of others. Coffee was good, dessert was delicious. Staff was nice and the atmosphere was so cozy and... More

We stopped here after touring the Colosseum. What a gem! Small, quirky, but serving up an amazing buffet lunch. Salad, couscous, potatoes, focaccia and quiche all washed down with a great Italian Pinot Grigio. Additionally a restaurant that sells a fine selection of teas. It sits somewhere between a cafe and a restaurant. The food was great, service was great... More

Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets. The neighbourhood supports unique and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
