Description: Canova - The salon of Piazza del Popolo - Restaurant, cafe, bar, happy hour - everything in the square, sitting at the tables of a comfortable and exclusive 'salon'. Here every occasion for refreshment during the day is a unique occasion, because you are surrounded by some of the most impressive works of art in Rome, and because you are immersed in a truly magical atmosphere. Coming to Canova means experiencing the 'piazza' as if it belonged to you.

“Great spot . . . and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

On Piazza del Popolo, with plenty of outside tables in the shade. Service was helpful and swift. Complimentary olives and crisps, followed by good, very cheesy pizzas and a risotto "special" with cheese and truffles. Good, fresh tomato bruschetta. Very pleasant atmosphere, overlooking the piazza. Pricey, as is to be expected in such a location.

“pleasant location”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

In a beautiful location overlooking the square. Although there is separated espresso with cold milk and a latte in menu, it turns out that it is exactly the same coffee, lousy taste with added sugar. Ignored our request to bring us two glasses of water.

“Rude hostess”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

I ate at this restaurant as I was hungry bad time to make choices.
I saw on the menu outside prices so I went in I ordered and after a average pasta soaking with too much cheese was shocked when the bill was different to what was advertised.
I asked the cashier she said there prices for the bar! What a ripoff. The people of rome think tourists are stupid but don't mind their money.
Rude arrogant staff

“A tourist trap but a sunny tourist trap”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014

The food is bland at best, the service just ok, the prices are dear but what would you rather do? Sit on the other side of the square in the shade with the Italians or sit over the road in the sun?

You know the answer don't you?

“Nice place to take a break”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

After a long day of sightseeing, if you end up in Piazza del Popolo,this is a nice place with outdoor seating where you can relax and have a couple drinks. Its location gives you a good view of the piazza and one can easily spend an hour or so observing the various artists doing their thing.
