John Felice Rome Center-OLD

All-day coffee & snack bar

Rinaldo and Nella's

For 35 years, Rinaldo and Nella Fiorini and their children Davide and Sylvia operated the coffee and snack bar at the JFRC.  John Felice wanted the cafe to be privately run and by an Italian family.  Rinaldo and Nella served countless panini and cappuccini and shared endless memories with thousands of students. 

The Cafe is now run by two brothers, Francesco and Lorenzo, continuing the family tradition of Rinaldo and Nella's Bar.  Students can eat, study, read, and access wireless in this quaint little cafe. 

Throughout the year, Rinaldo's is the place where a variety of social and cultural events occur. The Office of Student Life at the JFRC organizes events that include lectures on Italian life and culture, volunteer activities, movie nights, talent shows, karaoke nights and theme parties.
