view of the famous coffe bar and restaurant "Caffè of the fig tree" in the center of Rome

Named after the ancient fig tree outside, this hipster hangout near the beautiful Santa Maria della Pace church is very popular with chess players of all ages, together with those filling their boots at the free pizza Aperitivo, which is accompanied by DJs.

“A new concept has been developed in one of the historic venues oìin the heart of Rome. Cosmopolitan and international, a bit rétro and always welcoming, it is an ideal place for meetings and meals…”


Decorated like an old Parisian cafe and split over two rooms, with the chess tables outside, the atmosphere is vibrant and the cocktails are great – especially the “Fircy’s”, a mix of vermouth, rhubarb and orange.


In fact, as well as “fig”, the word “Fico” in Italian also means “cool” and that is certainly a great way to describe this place.
Fico has an elegant, airy internal courtyard, where it is possible to savor high quality meat specialties, original and traditional pizzas, as well as sophisticated Italian, and in particular, Roman culinary specialties.
