Palazzo del Freddo
 This enormous ice cream parlour and workshop grandly (and quite rightly) calls itself the ‘Palace of Cold'. Pause here for a traditional Italian ice cream, choc ice or semifreddo dessert, to eat at a table or takeaway. If you're planning on making a meal of it, don't miss the brioche buns filled with gelato and whipped cream. The fruit flavours are seasonal, so expect different specialities throughout the year.

Le Levain

Open from 8 until 20.30 every day with shorter hours on a Sunday, it's the perfect spot for breakfast or brunch, a quick coffee and a cake, or a freshly filled baguette for lunch.

La Prosciutteria
 This popular charcuterie joint near the Trevi fountain serves up huge platters of cold cuts, cheeses and fruit, which go down nicely with a bottle of local plonk.
