Mara's Italian Pastry information
Join early risers for shots of Illy espresso and crostata (jam tart), or wander in at night between bars and Beach Blanket Babylon for torta di mandorla (almond-meal tart with layer of jam) and chocolate-chip-ricotta cannoli. Twice-baked, extra-crunchy biscotti are an acquired taste for non-Italians – try dunking them in vin santo – but pine-nut-studded chewy pignoli are cross-cultural crowd-pleasers.
