Review
A classic grand café with plenty of space, chandeliers, mirrors, dark wood, and old elegance. The gallery along its east side was used for a classic Mini Cooper chase scene in the original (and superior) 1969 production of 'The Italian Job'. One of the top 18 coffee bars in Italy, according to Gambero Rosso. Past the counter of sweets, they use a red, four-group La Cimbali to pull espresso shots with a thinner, even, medium-to-dark brown crema. The shot is pulled a touch short, giving it a darker pungent flavor with a woody edge. Served in Schönhuber Franchi Baratti & Milano logo cups. ?0.90.
