Caffè Canova-Tadolini review Rate it

Sculptor Antonio Canova signed a contract in 1818 to ensure that this property, in the heart of the old artists' quarter, would remain an atelier for sculpture. The master's wishes were respected until 1967: the workshop passed through many generations of the Tadolini family, descendants of Canova's favourite pupil and heir, Adamo Tadolini.

Now refurbished as a museum-atelier, Canova's workshop has café tables among its sculpture models and a refined and elegant old-world feel: dark hardwood floors, wood-beamed ceilings, chandeliers and mustard-yellow leather banquettes and chairs. Lunch is served, and the small bar offers cocktails and assorted drinks, as well as tasty titbits, from canapés to cookies and pastries.
