Popped into this place when walking home and came back every night. Everything about this place is perfect! Service was great, cocktails delicious, and a brilliant selection of beers. Not only this, but you get free homemade bar snacks with all orders. :) would certainly recommend

If you like cocktails and you like great service, visit here. The people, the cocktails and the service you receive make this place worth a visit. They are some of the best cocktails I had while in Rome. Very inviting location. The only drawback is the lights are a little bright for a late night latin.

Beautiful espresso bar which is incredibly popular with the locals. Went in for a wine or coffee a few times and just watched the wonderful staff work. Coffee perfectly served with a smile and they are more than happy for you to chill with a cold vino. This is exactly what Rome is about...... Go, just go.....

Found on trip advisor as it was near our hotel Very good value for money, and good quality food. Plenty of locals using it which is always positive. We went in once for breakfast and once lunchtime, the croissants were amazing. We tried lots of coffee places but this was our favourite :-)

Oh, sweet little Barnum, I wish I could have picked you up and transplanted you a block from my home. This is the kind of place you wish was always around the corner from your house. For a week, we had that good fortune, as we stayed at an AirBnB just down the block. Our host directed us to Barnum... More

I had some really nice cappuccino and a giant piece of carrot cake (macadamia nuts included) wrapped in heavenly mascarpone as thick as my finger.

Neighbourhood Profile
Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
