Caffé Farnese Rome Reviews
Caffé Farnese May 10, 2008
At the end of Via Giulia you have a very nice view walking under Bridge at Via dei Farnesi. From here you can turn towards Paizza Farnese. At the square you will find Palazzo Farnese which is a prominent High Renaissance palace and currently houses the French Embassy in Italy. On the other side of the square at Via Dei Baullari 106 there is a very nice café where you can sit outside and enjoy the sun and the scenery, but also some nice food. A long row of tables almost fills Via dei Balluari and rumour says that it is nearly always full at any time of the day.
The outside of the café is very cosy and laid back. One of the striking things was that it's only Italians sitting there having their lunch and their campari's. Next to us a family had brought their family priest with them and this resulted in some fun between the girls serving.
We had both very good and large salads; scrimp and tuna salad. We were both very satisfied. The café is open from early morning until late night, prices are moderate. Here you can get traditional Italian breakfast consisting of croissant and coffee, an aperitivo at lunchtime, or an ice cream in the afternoon; this is a great meeting place.
