Putting it simply, I love this place. I went here at least five times when I was in Rome, and it was great every time. The bakery is unmarked, but it is right next to Kosher Cakes at the end of the long street of...More

There’s no signage on this little corner shop that has an unfurled awning above its narrow door. Therefore, unless there’s a line of people to indicate that there’s something inside worth queuing for, it’s easy to pass this no-frills pasticceria by as I have done...More

This bakery is deceptive...it's on the corner of an ancient building that doesn't look like it could produce anything of note...it has no sign outside except for the qroup of people eagerly awaiting their turn to purchase the delicious cakes...It's also very small but the...More

A seasoned traveler very familiar with Rome told me about Pasticceria Boccione. She said we MUST try the crostata di ricotta (ricotta cake), which proved to be a melt in my mouth slice of heaven. This bakery is located in the old Jewish Quarter of...More

When asked about traditional Roman (Jewish) foods our tour guide pointed out a tiny bakery in the old Ghetto and told us that you could not get more authentic than the Pizze that they sell there. This bakery doesn't have a sign outside but there...More

The mini-neigborhood Ghetto holds tight to its
reputation as a stand-alone area thanks to its nearly
300-year history as the home to Rome’s Jewish
community. Times changed in the 20th century, but the
tiny area still retains its mix of tradition,
community, and history. Ancient and medieval
architectural design frames apartments, bakeries,
shops, and restaurants. Friends and families are the
