Had drinks and chacouterie plate here. lots of good food for a modest price. Draw back is smoking is allowed in the outdoor patio. Gelato is spectacular.

Great service, very friendly and fun. Thought the beer was expensive, until they started bringing out trays of complementary apples.

I had an Aperto spritz whilst my wife had ice cream. The place was busy with a good atmosphere. We sat under the sidewalk cover on a very hot day. Service was quick and staff friendly and polite. It was excellent value for money.

Spectacular flavour. Fresh and rich and balanced. Best gelato we had in Rome. Second only to Ettamo in Florence. Maybe if we had been able to try Portofino gelato again, it might be at the top.

Just steps away from the chaos of the centre, Prati is
the closest Rome gets to calm. Meticulously planned in
a neat grid, quite unlike neighbouring Borgo, Prati is
a local favourite for its aesthetic organisation and
wide streets lined with a range of boutiques for every
shopping fantasy. Nonnis pushing baby carriages and

that’s only during business hours. Once the sun sets,
