With its sidewalk tables taking in Santa Maria della Pace's beautiful jewel of a piazza, Caffè della Pace has long been the haunt of Rome's beau monde. Set on a quiet street near Piazza Navona, it also has two rooms filled with old-world personality and paparazzi-worthy patrons. The neighborhood is currently hipper than ever, creating clogged vicoli, so a table here is now an especially prized commodity. Dinner is more of a light meal than a dining "experience,"
but it's worth coming for the vibe—particularly for postprandial sips.
