Just off piazza Navona, Rome’s first ever wine bar is home to an encyclopaedic wine list.
Rome’s first ever wine bar, the Cul de Sac was founded in 1977. Looking very traditional nowadays, it’s cramped inside and out, with long pine benches and tables, and is decidedly no-frills. But the location – just off piazza Navona, with a ringside view of the ‘talking’ statue of Pasquino – coupled with fairly reasonable prices and an encyclopaedic wine list, ensures full occupancy all the time. The food is standard wine-bar fare including a selection of home-made pâtés as well as generous sharing plates of cured meats and cheeses.
