A small kiosk with tables outside, at a cross road near the metro entrance, so on a busy walkway Strangely calm a good place to talk and have a drink or aperitivo. Beware that there is an extra charge for table service.

Decent sandwiches and good juice drinks made fresh. Espresso was average and prices are just right for a quick bite. Good place to take a rest. Staff is very friendly and helpful. We stopped several times for a quick espresso or juice.

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

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