We had coffee and best ice cream ever. Dont miss the pistasio-almond-lemon mex and the cheese cake flavor. The staff is very friendly and the service is excellent.

This is one of my favourite places for ice cream, always fresh and good quantity of flavours. Also excellent for morning cappuccino

We've visited Portofino Caffe every morning for typical italian breakfast. Bakery was fresh and tasty and cappuccino, too. The service is attentive and kind. Very popular place with large scale of fresh fruit juices and ice cream, as well.

We had a lovely plateful of salmon and aubergine salad for lunch. Inside is a buffet where you can put together your own pasta or salad choices. Coffee came with a free tiramisu taster. Professional service. Great people watching in a rather posh shopping area....More

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
gossiping teens own every inch of the sidewalk, but
that’s only during business hours. Once the sun sets,
