Today, as then, you can easily meet writers and celebrities . The Way of the Bar and become the meeting point as well as a necessary step .

Thursday was our free (no tours day) shopping day. Stopped off here, waited a wee while to be served. But the tray of crisps, nuts, olives and sandwiches were a surprise, but tasty none-the-less. Nice place for a short stop. Plenty of locals enjoying lunch. Decent prices for drinks..

Stopped for a spritz Aperol and we got a tray of tasty bar snacks. Average price, but great location near the Spanish Stairs.

We waited for a table outside for about 5 minutes. We needed an afternoon shot of caffeine. The restaurant is located on a busy side street full of shoppers and tourists. What else would you expect in Rome, just steps from the Trevi Fountain? The caffe latte's were very good, if not a little small. We also ordered chocolate gelato and it was wonderful. It came with two sugar wafer cookies that were delicious. When I asked for a few more, our waiter brought us a plate of about 7 of them for free.

Not far from Spanish steps, we though a nice casual bite to eat and drink and then hop in a taxi from the rank nearby. The place with its outdoor seating looked 'just right' but there were only seats free inside. Perhaps because we opted to go inside, we were forgotten even though the waiters were constantly passing us. Just as we were about to leave for lack of service, our order was taken. We received slightly burnt and cold offerings by the non smiling, distinctly grumpy waiter who appeared to be more annoyed when we ordered a second glass of the house red. The staff were very busy serving the outside customers but that hardly validates poor service for others. I did enquire about the cost of a menu dessert of gelato as it did look superb and seemed to be a speciality. However when told it 'about 15 or 16 Euros' I knew it was time to leave.
