As a family, as a couple or with friends: Sunday brunch is a unique opportunity to relax and enjoy the Eternal City from another point of view. The more “international” one but with a touch of originality and Italian taste.

Cappuccino and cornetto for breakfast

Forget eggs and bacon. If you want to feel like a local, ask for a cappuccino and a cornetto for breakfast. Ask for an espresso after lunch and taste a good liquor at the end of your dinner. Please don’t have a cappuccino during your lunch: Romans never do it!
