Fantastic place.....looks really tired and uninteresting from the outside, but once inside you are transferred to another world. I went there for the Canolli (amongst the best I have tried). I ended up trying not only the canolli but also various granita flavours, sweets, coffee and those amazing croissants covered in honey (try one!!!!). Brilliant place, lovely people!

We purchased some cakes here for afternoon coffee and cake last week from this Pasticceria. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the cakes were really tasty. The cakes were really nicely packed and presented and the Pasticceria was clean and tidy. Definitely worth a visit.
