Many of Pigneto‘s cafes, where today groups of locals and tourists are hanging out at, are originals and have been in the district for years: actually before the neighborhood became that cool area that is today, and began gentrifying.
As per usual, some of the original places were put up for sale, while others renovated, getting ready to ride the new wave! Pigneto Caffè, for example, is one of those places which developed a very balanced atmosphere: in the morning and during the afternoon, it’s more relaxed, with two nice and extremely friendly ladies, with an almost “maternal” attitude. After sunset, it turns into a cool bar, with glowing lights and three young and very kind bartenders (some of them with “acrobatic” skills, behind the bar counter!).
If you happen to go there for the happy hour (18:00 – 21:00), you can choose among several drinks at very low prices (my favorite one, the Spritz, is just € 3.50: can you imagine how I’d get drunk during these hours?!); and let’s say it: perfectly prepared cocktails are their best weapon!
Just at beginning of the recently renovated pedestrian area of Pigneto, Pigneto Caffè seems to have the ability to welcome any clientele: from families with children (I’ve been here many times with a friend of mine, and her two young kids), to workers, students, tourists, and so on!
That’s just it: when the place has got nice vibes, everybody feels at home!
Get there with trams number 19, 5, 14, or Metro C (Pigneto station).
