Piccolo Teatro lies just a few steps off the busy via Dante which is lined with shops and restaurants. Inside this arched doorway is an oasis of quiet with a lovely courtyard café, as well as tables inside. You can get your morning espresso here, they also have a lunch menu, aperitivo and a great aperitivo buffet later in the evening. I have been here at all times of the day and really love the feeling of calm and peace here. There is also a small bookstore attached to the courtyard with gifts and books in both Italian and English.
