Perhaps just an off day but terribly slow service, and €6 for half a cup of coffee (which wasn’t even good coffee!) Nice location overlooking the piazza but really not worth it

Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields
to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most
desirable neighbourhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best
place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and
Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with
enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s
