Le Levain

Bakery in Trastevere & Gianicolo

Many locals come here for their daily dose of rich and creamy butter, albeit it in the guise of authentic croissants, pains au chocolat and other irresistible French pastries. Traditional French sweet treats – colourful cream-filled macarons, flaky millefeuilles and miniature tartes aux pommes (apple tarts) – are equally authentic. Enjoy your indulgence on a stool inside or on the nearby piazza.

Well-stuffed baguettes, quiches and soups make the French bakery a popular lunchtime spot too. Find it around the corner from the San Cosimato outdoor market.
