A symbol of the dolce vita in the little port adored by international celebrities. With its parasols looking out over the famous square, it is as basic as ever, with Jerusalem-stone floors and cross-vaulted ceilings. Baron de Thierry, a regular with the Colonna, Borghese and Torlonia families, brought the art of the American bar here in the 1920s; Marconi, who used to stay at the Miramare in Santa Margherita, would arrive on his launch for a cup of coffee. In 1941, “paciugo” ice-cream was invented here. All Hollywood stopped by: Greta Garbo, Humprey Bogart, Clark Gable, Frank Sinatra, and Ingrid Bergman.
