Pasticceria Cova

Cafe in Quadrilatero d'Oro & Porta Venezia

In operation for 200 years, the Quad's most historic bar has emerged from its renovations with a subtle nip-and-tuck eschewing any showy modernisations. Instead, cushioned banquettes gleam in midnight blue velvet, off-setting dazzling chandeliers and gilt-framed mirrors. It's the perfect spot for tea or a thick-cut smoked salmon panini, followed by a slice of their devilishly good sachertorte.
