Was on holiday with the family and spotted the TripAdvisor sticker on their window, so thought it must be good! Unfortunately, the palmier that I had ordered was not flakey and kind of chewy.
I also found the ameretti biscuits to be very sweet but my father seemed to enjoy his coconut biscuits.

The staff was very kind and enjoyable to help us choose items for a picnic. The meat/cheese and fresh focaccia were very good. We were utterly shocked at the final bill though.

We purchased 2 "regional specialty" breads at this shop. One was fine, the other had mold in the top. The breads were both fully packaged so one could not tell the condition. If you buy here, beware!

We stopped here to buy some focaccia for our breakfast the day after. After spending 3 weeks in Italy I can certainly say it was the BEST focaccia. Also, the girl in the counter was really nice and willing to help :)

This bakery was recommended by our tour guide as a great place for focaccia bread...and boy was she right! Although it would have been better warm, the focaccia bread with rosemary is the best I have ever tasted. Yum!
