Fodor's Review

Pricey Antico Caffè Greco is a national landmark and Rome's oldest café; its red-velvet chairs, marble tables, and marble busts have seen the likes of Byron, Shelley, Keats, Goethe, and Casanova. Add to this the fact that it's in the middle of the shopping madness on the upscale Via dei Condotti, and you won't be surprised that the place is often filled with tourists. But there are some locals who love basking in the more than 250 years of history held within these dark-wood walls. The antique artwork lining the walls lends the place the air of a gorgeously romantic, bygone era. Drink your coffee at the counter for a much less expensive experience.
