Top choice bakery in Monti, Esquilino & San Lorenzo

Pure heaven for foodies, this enticing bakery is littered with well-used trays of freshly baked pastries loaded with confectioner's custard, wild-cherry fruit tartlets, pizza al taglio, arancini and focaccia – the smell alone is heavenly. Grab a bar stool between shelves of gourmet groceries inside or congratulate yourself on scoring a table on the flowery, sun-flooded terrace – one of Rome's loveliest.

Breakfast, full-blown lunch menus and evening aperitivo are also on offer.
