The fabulous folks at Gatsby cafe at Piazza Vittorio have an awesome space and are working with other local businesses to improve the image of the much maligned Esquilino neighborhood near Termini station. They took over a former cap shop which included the stock of vintage Gatsby caps, hence the name. The cafe has 3 levels and is decorated with vintage swoon-worthy 1950s furniture & light fixtures.
They also have live music – check their Facebook page for updates.
