The Ciampini family started catering in Rome in 1941 from the beautiful Piazza Navona with the ''I Tre Scalini'', to Via Frattina in the next decade, ending up to the current location in the Piazza San Lorenzo in Lucina.
San Lorenzo is pretty square close to the Spanish steps ''Piazza di Spagna'' with the homonymus Roman Catholic church and many high end fashion stores, like Louis Vuitton, Bottega Veneta, Christian Louboutin, Saint Laurent etc.
At Ciampini you can have lunch with numerous options of salads, spaghetti and pizzas, breakfast with panini and desserts or just a coffee. Prices seem pretty normal especially if you take into consideration the location of the bistrocafe. There are some tables outside in the Piazza di San Lorenzo, apart from the others inside.
We got Coffee and a tiramisu which was pretty good.
Open Everyday from 7:30 to 21:30, Sundays too from 9:30 to 21:30
