29 Piazza San Lorenzo
Rome , Italy

Located in Piazza San Lorenzo, just four blocks from the Spanish Steps, Ciampini is a full-service brasserie, bar, and gelateria known for having some of the best gelato in the city. The interior is decorated with black leather booths, brick archways, and large windows, and an umbrella-shaded patio is set up each morning in the cobblestoned piazza. Frequented by employees of nearby Parliament, which is just across the street, Ciampini serves cappuccino and cornetti (Italian croissants) for breakfast; truffle risotto for lunch or dinner; and for dessert, the famous homemade gelato in flavors like hazelnut and mango.
