“Good location, bad cocktails”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

This restaurant is an exceptional location but drinks are really expensive and with no alchool. We took three mojhito for 10 € each and their taste was the same of a lemonade. Waiters can go to well manner school, also.

“wonder atmosphere”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

We had a wonderful lunch and see sat and watched the people walk by. Great big outdoor patio and a very modern interior, I think this spot as the nicest bathrooms we encountered during our week long visit to Roma.

“World class people watching -”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

This elegant cafe is just fun.

Several rows of tables face out onto the lovley Piazza del Popolo, which is action-central for trendy international tourists, stylish locals, and workers of all strips who frequent the bar and cafeteria areas inside.

We have lunch here most days we are in Rome, and it is a great place to relax and linger over terrific coffee and excellent salads and other dishes. The wait-staff is polite and attentive.

Yes, it is expensive to sit at the outdoor tables - relax and enjoy life. The entertainment of seeing varied and beautiful people is worth it.

“A place to relax and observe”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

WE visited Canova at my last day in Rome to relax after 4 days of unlimited walking and sightseeing just to have a cup of coffee, relax and watch the people walking down Piazza del Popolo. The coffee was decent and the location is ideal to relax and just observe local people or tourists exploring the Piazza del Popolo. We didn't taste their food so i don't have an opinion about it.

“Great spot to watch the city go by”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

After long downhill walk from piazza esplanade, one can sit in sun or shade to watch people headed home after work. Quite decent food, place very busy, fine spot to hold still and try to integrate the day
