Cute place but small, coffee and cakes are more expensive than similar places in Rome. The service is slow and to top it all, there is nowhere to sit down to enjoy your coffee when you eventually get it!

Enjoyed some finger sandwiches and coffee here. It was a bit pricey but the outdoor table seating is very nice. I would recommend this place.

Stopped in one night after dinner. The pastry selection was decent and the gelato was tasty but it was a small selection in comparison to a lot of gelaterias in Rome. It's the only offering in the area, so you get what you get!

A very nice place for a cup of coffee or tea. Tasty cakes and good sandwiches for a quick lunch. It is very nice and very roman. I went a couple of times with friends and I really enjoyed the moment.

Young and well-to-do families are the street flavour
of Parioli. A new kind of Rome, this area is centuries
away from the Renaissance with its pockets of 1930s
palaces, tony boutiques, open-air markets and plenty
of coffee shops. Parioli was built as an enclave for
last century’s haute bourgeois and still represents as
such in 21st century Rome. Need a break? The area has
several great sporting clubs known for tennis and
