Caffe Greco Rome Reviews
A part of our current history - pricy and cultural overflow Feb 27, 2016
Walking in to Caffe Greco is like stepping into a picture of the history of the last 250 years. The entrance is elegant - and still like stepping into a posh bakery. Stepping further into the restaurant is like stepping into a time capsule. You are met by elegant waiters and an environment which hasn't been changes in 150 years - back to the days where the Danish writer Hans Christian Andersen was sitting there tellings stories and discussing with fellow artists.
The interior is colorful and pictures, letters and sculptures gives you the feeling that you are in a museum more than a cafe or a restaurant. When you are given the menu you are met by prices which are more than high; 15 euro for a cup of tea but it might be worth it depending on your ability to taste the history. We ordered a glass of prosecco at 17 euro each. They were elegantly served with some berries on the side of the glass. Later the waiter arrived with canapés and nuts which made it worth the stay.
We stayed quite long enjoying the atmosphere and walking around enjoying the art on the walls. The place is quite large and even the toilets keeps a high level.
