This is in a convenient location down a side street off the Piazza Matteotti. We had tea and a nice raspberry tart on the terrace. Friendly service.

Can you imagine a caffe existing from 1798?? And staying at the same place for over 200 years??? I was very surprised once saw the corner with the history! I tried negroni and cuban mojito served with nice snacks, all was very good! Price for the cocktails 8 euro and the snacks complimentary. Location is pretty sweet, right under the... More

We passed by this bar and dropped in for a drink. The staff were very helpful and they had a wide range of drinks including some really interesting beers. We also had aperitivo for two which was very tasty. It came on two dishes with lots of different tastes to try. We will certainly return for lunch one day.

We had no plans for lunch and were wondering the streets and found this. We pay close attention to Trip Advisor reviews and looked this up before entering. It had great reviews, which I will add to. We wanted something light and primarily with veggies. The menu had several salads along with many other fantastic sounding choices. We were seated... More

After a long way searching for a restaurant we found the caffe, and we were very happy here. Inside a great old cafe, outside a lively (traffic-free) street, very good Kirchen, friendly staff and reasonable prices: perfect.

Very friendly and inviting atmosphere with the extra benefit of air condition on the top floor. Cozy interior and friendly staff. Negative is that the food came in a huge variety of sizes and the menu was all in Italian. You could get help from the staff but it still made it a bit hard to decide. Wine was awesome... More

A tad on the expensive side but as always, all drinks come with a large plate of very tasty nibbles. Don't go there first if you're planning a meal out afterwards though.

We visited here several times for lunch, just a quick snack and a drink. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff (the toilet is an initiative test but can be found at the bottom of the stairs, in a cupboard - really). We went back one evening to try the local "fish and chips" - photo attached. Really delicious and so was... More
