Explanation:
It is a polite phrase that you would use in a restaurant or some luxury pub.
In more common pub you just say: "Jedno pivo".

OK. In case of ice-cream, the fourth case of the word "zmrzlina" is necessary, i.e. "zmrzlinu"


Explanation:
The Czech language has 7 cases for substantives, and in case of "Rad bych si dal", the 4th case is necessary. I.e., one cannot say "Rasd bych si dal "zmrzlina" (1st case), but "Rad ... zmrzlinu" (4th case).
