Fodor's Expert Review Antico Caffè della Pace
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
It doesn't get any more Rome than this: a cappuccino or cocktail alfresco at a turn-of-the-20th-century-style cafè nestled in the picturesque ivy-clad sidestreets behind Piazza Navona. Celebrities and literati hang out at the coveted outdoor tables of Antico Caffè della Pace, also known as Bar della Pace, where the atmosphere ranges from peaceful to percolating. Its location is equally enchanting, in the piazzatina (tiny piazza) of Santa Maria della Pace, by Baroque architect Pietro da Cortona.
