Not a Restaurant, but a GREAT Biscotti

OK, so this is not a restaurant, but they make a great biscotti, possibly the best ever. The blue bag, original almond is far better than the chocolate chip. There is not much better than first walking in the door of the store and getting that whiff of sweetness. You can be very lucky if they... read more

At Antonio Mattei shop you can find the original cookies of the Tuscany tradition made according with a centenary recipe. Called cantucci are made of almond and all top quality ingredients. Ideals for a tea party, or just for an original gift. Do not forget to visit Prato as it is a really picturesque city.

I always buy mattei. It is the only real "biscotto di Prato". Simple and rustic. The store has come up with new variations on the theme and I always welcome the new, but if you want to know what pratesi have eaten for centuries now, these are the classics: biscotti di Prato, bruttiboni, mantovana, and pan con ramerino.

Probably the best producer of bisquits of the World!!!!!!!! Is famous for "cantuccini" traditional almond bisquits of Prato. You have to try also the cake called "Mantovana". Super!!!!!!

Entering this shop with the smell of warm sugar and biscuit making is enough to make you want to buy packets and packets of their exceptionally delicious Cantucci biscuits. All wrapped up in beautiful blue waxed paper for € 5. A must stop shop in Prato's centro storico.

Apparently the oldest and most famous biscuit maker in Prato, home of the Biscotti di Prato. Lots of nicely packed things to take home as souvenirs.
