Top choice italian in Monti, Esquilino & San Lorenzo

Housed in an early 1920s chocolate factory, this hybrid cafe-bar, restaurant and boutique is San Lorenzo’s coolest hipster haunt. Its Japanese pink-tea pralines, indulged in with a coffee or bought to take home, are glorious, and dining here is urban chic, with battered sofas, industrial antiques and creative cuisine. Reservations for lunch and dinner, served from 12.30pm and 8pm, recommended.
