“Expensive but delicious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

We stumbled upon the place and went to see. Ended up buying an almond pastry and it was simply the nicest pastry I have eaten for a while!

But the prices are a bit high, so prepare to pay for the sweetness.

“The BEST Bakery in Rome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

We just happened to walk by this extraordinary bakery and pizzeria when staying in the Campo di Fiori neighborhood. We left with a bag stuffed with baked goodies to take back to our rented apartment that we devoured instantly! The strawberry tart was outstanding and we can still smell the fresh aroma of the strawberries. The pastry is amazing! We stopped back every day for a week to indulge in the sweet treats from this wonderful bakery! Service is great too!

A MUST BAKERY in Rome! We'll definitely return when we visit Rome!!

“Best pizza ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

Even if we had been told that we would have the best pizza there, we didn't expect this. It was really incredible. Best pizza ever. We didn't like the tiramisu, though. Look forward to go there again. We will try the cookies next time. We were so full of pizza that we couldn't try everything in that magical bakery.

“Great treats!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

Another classic Italian bakery where you can get all the goodies from! Biscotti was superb! Store was small so it can get crowded in there!

After finding this jewel, we returned on three different occasions. Great options, good taste of quality Italian pastries.
