“Couscous with pistachio”
Reviewed July 25, 2012 via mobile

Unfortunately the entire structure is closed for various reasons so at the moment it's worth visiting for only two reasons- the architecture (exterior obviously) and to buy the pistachio couscous which is only available from the nuns next door. There is no sign so you have to ring the bell at the door in the corner or ask at the entrance to the church. The couscous is made according to an old and well kept secret. Only at Expanificio restaurant can you eat this dessert which comes directly from the nuns. Half a kilo is sufficient for 4 people and the cookies they make are also highly recommended!
