The creative window display of Roman landmarked carnated in bread first caught our attention. They have a variety of sweet and savoury snack perfect for a holiday brunch or an afternoon caffe break.
Most of the staff are charming like your best friend’s Italian mom, but may tell you off if you’re being unreasonable and too much of a spoil brat when it comes to ignoring Italian courtesy. So you’ve been warned.
It helps to speak some basic functional Italian (face it, it not that hard to learn).
Queue at the glass counter in the far left hand side of the pastry shop, wait to be served, then tell them (or point out) what you would like. If it is savoury, then ask for it to be heated. Coffee queue is right hand side of the cashier. But you can also order your coffee when you are paying for your pastries. Please let the lady or gentle at the coffee stand know how many coffees you are waiting for (if you have prepaid).
Always be nice, and smile. It goes a long way esp for staff who have to work long hours to cook, clean and keep you happy.
I love their fried courgette flowers (Fiori di zucca) and the gourmet aranchini. You can ask for water (free) when you are waiting for your coffee.
