Fantastic small place for lunch in the middle of a nice parc. Friendly staff and quick service. Delicious pinsa, and focacia, and flakes of jazzy trumpet music from the parc. Absolutely recommended.

Pic Nic is a perfect place for a coffee and croissant (cornetto) or a sandwich in the Borghese parc. Even on a hot summer day. A hidden gem in the park!

palaces, tony boutiques, open-air markets and plenty
of coffee shops. Parioli was built as an enclave for

such in 21st century Rome. Need a break? The area has
several great sporting clubs known for tennis and
