Pasticceria Caprice information
This popular cafe-cum-cake-shop is a great spot for a quick bite of lunch or a mid-afternoon pick-me-up. There's a daily selection of pastas and simple meat dishes, which you can follow up with something from the tempting display of cakes, biscuits and ice cream. Seating is in a grand back room with vaulted ceiling and chandeliers or on a thin streetside terrace.
