Starbuck's coffee isn't as good as original italian one, but I think it's quite good. Me too I don't take coffee when I go there, I usually drink a juice and eat a cheesecake (I adore starbuck's cheesecake, and we don't have it in italian bars). Basically, I don't think that starbuck's atmosphere and concept and menu are similar to italian bars, at all. They're totally different. It's funny that Starbuck's managers think that in Italy we don't need Starbucks because we already have italian bars. STARBUCKS DOESN'T LOOK LIKE AN ITALIAN BAR. For example, we've got a great tradition in food, but at the same time our McDonald's are always crowded. Therefore, I would like to have starbucks in Italy!
