If you are in Ivrea and you have a sweet tooth, you cannot miss this place! Along the Dora riverside in a nice place, though I used to like the old one much more!

I have been to Balla on different occasions, but do not plan to go back again. The pastries are good, but the Novecento is not worth all the hype. And the service is not friendly, nor quick.

There is only one place in the world (literally) where you can buy a Torta 900, and this place is Balla in Ivrea. The Torta 900 is a quite ugly looking cake, but do not be mislead by the looks because its heart is heaven. No attempt of copying it was ever successful. And while you wait for the cake... More
