This is one of the best pastry and ice-cream makers in Rome. It’s one of my favorite spots, because while you’re inside, you can really breathe in the atmosphere.
The staff is gentle and let the customers relax at the tables. I usually go there for breakfast, the typical Italian one. There are several special things to taste if you’re passing by: I usually get a fresh chocolate croissant and an espresso mixed with hazelnut semifreddo, or I get a piece of cake such as la Foresta Nera, my favorite.
Sometimes I also go there to have a small lunch, a savory ham-and-cheese or salmon croissant, and some fresh centrifugal fruit juice. The atmosphere is quite relaxing and charming – every day it seems like Sunday morning. It’s well-frequented by the people of the neighborhood. You can even shop original and artisanal product such as marmalades, gianduia cream or pistachio sauce there.
The three founders, Emanuele, Andrea and Marco, started this business as a homemade production service on 2004 on a tiny secondary street nearby, and in a few years they’ve become a famous pastry shop with a bar service. They have been successful enough to be opening other shops in Rome, because when the quality is the mission, the people appreciate it.
