This place was just around the corner from our hotel, we walked past it one evening and it was busy so decided to give it a try the next day. Stopped by for an evening drink and got chatting to the staff who said that they were fully booked for the night. Luckily he managed to squeeze us in and... More

Good aperitivo dinner and excellent drinks! There were also awesome live music and the atmosphere were great! Not many tourists so it feeled real authentic Italian night. I don't know if the place is more cafe in the daytime, but in the evening it was cosy and fun bar, which I would definitely recommend. Also a very friendly and fun... More

This place is one of the first to have instituted the "Aperitvo" buffet in Rome since years and the quality has been constant.Very nice crowd where 50/60 year olds dont feel out of place!! Very genuine dishes on the buffet table, refreshed frequently. Booking recommended. Some evenings with music too. Excellent wine by the glass. Go and have a try... More

This trendy cafè-restaurant offers delicious aperitivos at affordable prices, every night. They offer a wide selection of dishes, including vegetarian options. Cocktails are the real highlight of this bar. Staff is friendly. Will surely come back again.

What a find! Tribeca Café has a aperitivo menu for €10 (buffet style) and €5 for a cocktail. This was by far the best priced menu for the quality of food. Every single dish on the buffet was made good quality produce, and the staff was great!

An amazing discovery, a fun evening, great aperitivo-dinner at a surprisingly low price and of a surprisingly high quality and wide choice, nice and friendly service, kind, gentle and attentive, perfect location. Summing it all up: I've been to many places of the kind in Rome, but this one will always be my number one choice!

We went here on a Thursday night, at 8 pm, so it wasn't full, it was a perfect amount of people to enjoy our aperitivo. The food was really great, even changed few of the meals to new ones during the period that we were there. Really tasty meals and healthy ones too. My only problem was that there were... More

We enjoyed our aperitivo experience at the Tribeca Cafe in January 2016. The Cafe is in a great area and was busy with a young noisy crowd. The food was very good with a great variety on offer.

We were staying on the same street and ended up in Tribeca cafe most days. Mostly traditional Italian breakfast; un caffé and a cornetto (espresso and a croissant), but also made brilliant cappuccino. Great value for money (the two of us had 2 cappuccinos, 2 pastries, espresso and water for under 5 euros). Nice owner, friendly barista, full of locals... More
