Too much to chose

Lucky I live here because there so many sorted patisserie that it's impossible to have the possibility to choose all of them. Could be great if the street is off limit to the cars to enjoy coffee outside in silence.

We came other times at this bar to have breakfast or appertif always with a not so great pastry... Yesterday we gave it another chance and we we're convinced it's not getting better. The croissants were hard and dry. The biscotti all'amarena is old hard as a rock. The coffee and cappuccino were alright. Orange juice (that was suppose to... More

So, I visited this patisserie with my husband as he had been there before and said it was quite a nice place to eat something sweet. Really bad choice! The place is nice and offers a huge variety of pastries and sweets. I had a tiramisu, it was good, but just ordinary. I expected something more than that actually. The... More

I knew I wanted to try two types of Sfogliatelle with my coffee -- the ricca and the frolla. These are the most famous pastries of Naples. The ricca is crispy layered pastry enveloping a smooth creamy interior. The frolla version is similar but with a smooth pastry texture and I believe small bits of candied citron. Don't hold me...

The kindness and friendliness of the owner was truly wonderful. Wish we had discovered this place earlier on our trip. Their coffee, cakes and mini Sfogliatella were memorable. Unfortunately their location is a bit challenging at present with bleak excavations and road works along the Riviera but it is well worth seeking out this oasis.

Recommended by a local to purchase traditional cakes from this region. We got mini Sfogliatella Riccia & Sfogliatella Frolla and a chocolate cake with nuts in it that kind of reminded me of an American brownie. The staff was very friendly and helped us pick what would be good for a lunch party of 8 people. And she also helped... More

I went in on my first day in Naples with the idea of having a simple breakfast and ended up discovering the magic of the city condensed in a single spot: incredibly tasty cakes of all sorts, nice relaxing atmosphere, and the joy of an animated conversation with the owners. They really know how to make you feel like at... More
