The real attraction of this shop is its delicatessen. Many very special items, from aceto to biscuits, friendly service, worth going.

Just a famous coffee place which sells all kinds of food (coffee beans mixtures/chocolate/sweets/marmalade from England for example). Specialized in foreign goods from all over the world but has also local sweets and other specialties. Ideal for finding a little culinary gift.

It caught my eyes immediately and i couldn't stop myself to enter. A very nice place with lots of products. It welcomes you with nice coffee smell. I bought some whole bean coffee. I highly recommend you.

Have a coffee at the bar and then buy some real Italian souvenirs for at home. Don't forget to buy a pack of Castroni Bar coffee beans, since I'd argue that it's the best coffee in town :)

I was lost there for at least an hour :) You can find almost everything here, everything related to Italian food- flour, pasta, sauces (pesto, tartufo), Recommended !

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,
