A piece of Sicily in the heart of Rome

I have been recently disappointed with the overall quality and hit and miss satisfaction of this pasticceria. I have been a devotee of their location in Palermo and find that this location, near the Piazza della Repubblica, is no longer as good. While their canollis are terrific, many of the other pastries we ordered on this trip were disappointing. I... More

Dagnino's cannoli have been a family tradition every sunday as lunch dessert when I was growing up. It was a very nice treat to return to this wonderful pasticceria which brings the real taste of Palermo pastry into the heart of Rome. The ricotta filling of the cannoli is absolutely divine and the cassate won't disappoint either. I have been... More

Tasty Sicily fish rolls, pork slices with great sauce and eggplant spaghetti were all very impressive. Prices were very reasonable. Wanted to come back but that was my last evening in Rome.

i must say i'm baffled by the poor reviews, we visited this place as it featured high on many websites' best coffee/pastry places. these are called 'pasticceria' in italy. the coffee was good (although i'm no connoisseur) the pastries fantastic the focaccia pizzettas were tasty, the bread especially hit the spot. all in all, i'd say it's a good place...

They claim to be the best in Rome, they act like they are the only place in Rome..... the problem is they are one of the most overpriced and over rated in the area around Piazza della Repubblica The food is precooked and reheated, skip that part. The pastries can be broken down like this: Some good, some fair and... More

If you love pastries and cakes this is your place! We tried a few sweet delights and they were out of this world. The display is so big that it takes you a while to decide what you want to try. Trust me we were so overwhelmed we had to try pick a few. They have this cute seating area... More

Dagnino's is in an fairly classy arcade off the Piazza Repubblica and the shop is quite large. The windows and in particular the counter displays are very impressive and will make you drool! There are tables out in the arcade and I had a meal here with very good service. The only downside was an older patron with a couple... More
