Owner description: Poets Keats and Shelley were regular patrons of this popular café, where the view from the outside is not nearly as expensive as the coffee served within.

“Delicious cakes”
Reviewed 6 April 2014

We had two coffees and two gorgeous wild strawberry tarts. Expensive but worth it for the décor and history. Found the waiters friendly and were even taking photos for people when asked.
If ever in Rome again would definitely pay a return visit.

“Fine for just a one off”
Reviewed 26 January 2014 via mobile

When we read that the oldest bar in Rome was near by we decided to go along and give it a go.

Caffe Greco's interior and layout are pretty amazing but the same can't be said for the selection of drinks.

We had a glass of red wine and a dry Martini. The waiter brought us small bites to eat also which was nice.

In summary, it's the novelty factor that takes you to Caffe Greco. It's fine for one drink, if a little over priced. ?15 for a Martini and ?10 for a glass of red wine!

“A classy cafe”
Reviewed 16 January 2014

If you visit Sacher cafe at Vienna, Cafe Central at Budapest and Caffe Greco at Rome, you will cover the triangle of old (very elderly) coffee shops in Europe. It works on the circumstance that you are a collector of vintage items or reminiscences of a previous life, otherwise, even if the place is as old as you will never be, the service is quite tolerable, the toilet inadequate, and the people mixture odd . I liked the air of decadent glamour, and the delicate tableware.
