Cappuccino after dinner? A-ok or a no-no for "authentic" Italian dining?

I was always taught that cappuccino is a breakfast drink,but I keep finding that Italian restaurants, even high end white tablecloth establishments, serve cappuccino after dinner. Do folks in Rome cap off a meal of bolognese and broccoli rabe with cappuccino? Or is this an instance of Americanization of foreign foods?
