Antico Caffè 1855

Looking out onto the Saint Remy Rampart, this cafe, bistro-bar offers some of the finest pastries in town along with handmade ice cream, crêpes, cocktails, wines and traditional Mediterranean food. It all began in 1838 when Lorenzo Canepa emigrated from a little village near Genoa and opened a small meeting place in Cagliari, named after himself. In 1855 it changed name to Caffé Genovese and became the meeting point for artists and town bourgeois. Refurbished in 1998, it once again changed its name becoming Antico Caffè. It serves an array of fresh pastries, Italian espresso and cappuccino for breakfast. Before lunch and dinner it changes into an elegant bar where aperitifs and wines are served along a variety of delicious finger foods. Lunch and dinner is a culinary experience where tradition meets haute cuisine in the rich à la carte menu. Beloved by locals, businessmen and tourists, it is the ideal stylish meeting place for visitors who want to treat themselves to something special.
