Popped in one evening on the way back from another wonderful restaurant. Beautiful warmly welcoming place which really made us feel at home. Great staff of course drove this for us. Had a glass of wine each and chose two deserts from a cacophony of colourful beauties lying behind a sea of glass. They were beautiful. And then the real... More

I'm not sure if this place is open 24 hours or just very late but I was happy to pick out a dessert every night on my way back to my B&B. The staff was so friendly even though i did not speak any italian, they did their best to answer my questions. They have a large selection of desserts... More

There was a shop very close to where we were staying, along the Spaccanapoli... walking by one day I could see large cakes in the display case... and some samples to try. Really delicious orange flavoured cake with almonds. Even though I waited a week and a half, when I returned, the girl behind the counter remembered me and helped... More

We stopped there for two "Aperol Spritz". The place is very nice far from crowds and seems to be frequented by locals. It's a real nice place to relax and have some apperitives. The Aperol comes with a plate of finger food for each person and the food is really good. It is not just peanuts and chips. It has... More

We came other times at this bar to have breakfast or appertif always with a not so great pastry... Yesterday we gave it another chance and we we're convinced it's not getting better. The croissants were hard and dry. The biscotti all'amarena is old hard as a rock. The coffee and cappuccino were alright. Orange juice (that was suppose to... More

So, I visited this patisserie with my husband as he had been there before and said it was quite a nice place to eat something sweet. Really bad choice! The place is nice and offers a huge variety of pastries and sweets. I had a tiramisu, it was good, but just ordinary. I expected something more than that actually. The... More

Lucky I live here because there so many sorted patisserie that it's impossible to have the possibility to choose all of them. Could be great if the street is off limit to the cars to enjoy coffee outside in silence.
