*orders caffè latte*

Sorry, an Italian would rarely order "caffé latte" in a bar - it could be usually what you get at breakfast at home (it's what you get when you simply pour some coffee into a cup of milk, and is usually written caffelatte). An Italian would order a "cappuccino" or, if it should be more milk than coffee, a "latte macchiato".
