Delicious cappuccino, chocolates and desserts, all freshly made there. The pear shaped cake soaked in liquor and cream puff were especially delicious. Service friendly and wonderful. Established in 1838. Owner gave us private tour of his chocolate museum and explained the history of the neighborhood.

We stopped here daily for coffee and a sweet. We sat outside to people watch and loved the area. The service is good and the pastries are killer.

This pastry shop is simply amazing. They have a Genoa pastry specialty called sfogliatelle, which is a little clam shaped treasure filled with a delicious crème. Crunchy and fabulous! Yes, I know, pricey at 2.5 euro, but worth it for a special treat that is the famous specialty of the town. For a bonus, don't fail to get a cannoli.... More

We went to this little shop to have the fresh ricotta cannoli and I must say they're one of the best I've had in Italy!
