Caffe Trieste review Rate it

This is one of the city's great cafés, a former hangout for Kerouac and Ginsberg and is where Coppola is said to have written the screenplay for The Godfather. The dark walls are plastered with photos of opera singers and famous regulars. There are muffins, pastries and sandwiches to eat, and the lattes are legendary, as are the opera sessions held here on a Saturday afternoon.
