Cafe Duomo is situated right next to the Duomo. Tired after a busy morning of touring and climbing up the Duomo to the dome my family and I decided to stop here for lunch.
Cafe Duomo has an inside and outside seating area. We chose to sit outside which had a cooling mist. The view was perfect. The menu is extensive and the prices are very reasonable.
I had the special of the day, which was lasagna. It was excellent and authentic. We also ordered the spaghetti carbonara. It tasted awesome with a delicious creamy sauce. The pesto, tomato, and mozzarella panini was delicious and filling. Try the pizza there are so many to choose from. We had the margherita pizza. It was fantastic. It was hot and made to perfection.
We all thoroughly enjoyed the tiramisu and the cappuccino. It was great way to end a perfect meal.
Overall service was very good and our enthusiastic waitress was helpful, pleasant and spoke good English.
Another positive note is they don’t add cover charges and service charges to the bill. As you may know it seems to be a common practice in Italy. After a while, you feel like everyone is trying to rip you off and it gets a bit tiring.
Having had a good lunch experience we decided to visit again for breakfast. Coffee was fresh and hot, and our croissants were tasty and fresh. Again the service was friendly and sweet.
Cafe Duomo is a friendly place with an excellent view of the Duomo at a very reasonable place, what more could you ask for? I will go back one day. I recommend coming here.
