Fodor's Expert Review Caffè Canova-Tadolini

Piazza di Spagna Historical

On chic Via del Babuino, the former studio of neoclassical sculptor Antonio Canova and his student Adamo Tadolini is now a wonderfully atmospheric spot for coffee or a snack. Either go for the budget option and take your coffee at the bar while admiring the enormous plaster copies of the maestros' work, or pay for table service and sit amid vast sculptures in this eccentric spot. Food is run-of-the-mill, but the setting is splendid.
