Bar ItaliaBar Italia is a 24-hour traditional Italian caf? in the heart of Soho. This small, authentic Italian coffee bar has a continental feel; The tiled floor is well-worn, walls are lined with posters synonymous to their culture, and there are fruit machines and a large TV screen at the end for its infamously rowdy soccer match broadcasts. Bar Italia?s coffee has received mixed reviews, probably because of its comparatively steep prices. Its pizzas and pasta are mediocre, but this hangout is famous mostly for it atmosphere. And here?s a fun fact: In 1926 John Logie Baird first demonstrated television in a laboratory above the Bar Italia caf?.
