CORNETTI BY NIGHT IN ROME | Bed and Rome and Breakfast

venerdì 13 gennaio 2017


A common saying is "When in Rome, do as the Romans do". Something that you shoud therefore do is one thing that every Roman has done at least once in his/her life, having breakfast before going to sleep. We are talking of a light Italian breakfast, not an American style one with eggs and bacon. Indeed, it would be rather difficult to sleep after that.

In rome there are several places where, in the middle of the night, or just close to dawn, you can find a freshly baked cornetto, the foundation of the Italian breakfast.

Here are some places where you can go for your night stop
  • Il Cornettaro di San Lorenzo, Via dei Piceni, just steps away from San Lorenzo Guest House; this is a bakery, not a cafè, and you will have your cornetto for half of the normal price
  • Cornetto Notte, Via La Spezia 115, close to the St. John Villa
  • Cornetto Notte, Via Ostiense 77, close to the Testaccio area
  • Il Sorchettaro, Via Cernaia 49, Porta Pia area, not far from Villa Borghese Guest House 
  • Alba Dolce, Via Albalonga 64, close to the St. John Villa (by the way, it is on the same steet of Pompi, famous for the tiramisu, that is also open till late hours.
  • Il Maritozzaro, Via Ettore Rolli 50, close to the Trastevere station; this is an institution for another Roma specialty, the maritozzo con la panna (a cake with whipped cream)
And here are few places for the day
  • Cristalli di Zucchero, Via San Teodoro 88, Circus Maximus; even if you are not a fan of sweet food, go there in any case, it is probably the most enchanting street in Rome
  • La Portinerria, Via Reggio Emilia 22, Porta Pia, close to Villa Borghese Guest House
  • Gran Caffè La Caffettiera, Piazza di Pietra, where you can have probably the best coffee in Rome along with cakes of the Neapolitan tradition, looking to the Temple of Hadrian
