My wife and daughter and I came upon Pasticceria Savoia at the end of a magical day.
We were staying in a rented villa down the coast from Amalfi in Marmorata and ended up there one afternoon after a long circuitous walk from Minori up the endless series of stairs up to Ravello and then down a terrifying series of stairways down from Ravello to Amalfi. We stopped for a drink on the promenade and then wandered through the town. On the way to the Duomo, we passed a beautiful pastry and gelato shop. It looked dauntingly expensive so we decided to check out some others, but after a few minutes we were lured back to this palace of pastry. We tasted at least a dozen kinds of gelato and then made the terribly difficult choice of four varieties which they packed into a large insulated box. While we were tasting, my wife also selected some of their delectable tuiles. It was not inexpensive but as always when something is superb, it is the memory not the cost that stays with you.
As we left the shop, we could see a rain storm approaching so we jumped into a cab, just as a torrent came down on us. A triple rainbow over quickly formed over the Tyrrherian Sea as the taxi delivered us home - a salute to what we were carrying. My daughter's fiancé had prepared a marvellous dinner of local fish which we probably rushed through much too quickly in order to get to the gelato and tuiles. It was an overwhelmingly delicious finish to a wonderful day.
We used Savoia as our control in a series of carefully conducted experiments at various the famous Roman gelato emporia but nothing came anywhere close to Savoia.
