Description: An offshoot of the famous Roscioli family bakery, here you can grab a fantastic breakfast to start off the day. While the front is small, you can grab something quickly al banco, or take your caffe and cornetto to the back to sit and read the paper while you enjoy. Though not the decor of a classic Roman bar, the pastries are perfect! Here you can also the traditional Maritozzo, a soft pastry filled with cream. If you find yourself in this area be sure to check out all the other Roscioli spots as well!
Description: Both a Salumeria and a small restaurant you can grab something quick to go or sit down for an amazing tagliere (mix of salami and cheese) with a glass of wine. The staff are incredibly knowledgeable and love sharing about every ingredient they have. My favorite is their balsamic vinegar with truffle, it pairs so well with their ricotta! Take a visit to this spot as an opportunity to learn more about the many salami and cheese of central Rome!
Description: Since 2004 Gelateria del Teatro has been offering their excellent artisanal gelato on the streets of VIa dei Coronari. They use all natural ingredients and take care in choosing the best quality from all around the world. From outside you can even watch them prepare the gelato fresh!
Description: The historic Sant'Eustachio Cafe is the best place to grab a coffee break. They roast their own beans, so if you love the coffee as much as me you can even grab a bag to take home. This exact cafe has been around since 1938 and was always a favorite of Romans and tourists alike, but their story as a roaster and bar goes back even as far as 1800! I recommend taking the coffee al banco, at the bar, rather than sitting. And if you don't like sugar be sure to mention before! They will make it already with a little in the coffee!
Description: The Roman workshop of the famous Antonio Canova, then passed to his apprentice Tadolini, it was then turned into a bar. I will say as far as quality goes the food is nothing special. But the experience is worth a spritz or glass of wine. All the plaster casts used for both Canova and Tadolini's sculptures are still here scattered. Grab an aperitivo surrounded by a little art and history.
