We found out about the cafe / bar in Lonely Planet and it was great for an apertivo (or 3). On a nice quiet street with very friendly staff.

This place combines comfort food, alcohol, music, special homemade cakes daily. Personally, I think the ambiance is perfect for a chill out session with your best buds. My friends and I ended up staying there for hours, just talking and enjoying our drinks.

I have been twice to this cozy bar and enjoyed their housemade barnum iced tea as well as a cafe latte. They have a big variety of spirits for which I would also recommend this place for a drink at night! Beautiful place!

Following TripAdvisor we found this hole in the wall cafe and had delicious, simple food following old recipes, but delivered with 21st century savvy. Well worthy visiting.

Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a
five-minute walk of each other, the
Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and
most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful
throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art
galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood
museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the
streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa
