After tasting a lot of coffee in Rome, I can honestly say that as a coffee lover, Castroni is the best. They'll make you a cup of coffee just the way it supposed to be, simple, flavorful, rich and creamy. As a bonus, this place...More

We weren't intending on eating at Castroni's...only shopping for a friend who wanted some Perugina Glacia candies and was having a difficult time finding them. Thanks to Google, discovered that Castroni has, in addition to a multitude of other product from around the world, a...More

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.

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,
