Lovely old traditional "pasticceria" (sweet shop) with cafeteria and few tables inside. You can ask for the usual (but great) small sweet (pasticcini) with fruit, chocolate and bignè, but my suggestion is to ask for special sweets like chocolate with framboise cream or chocolate with chestnut and many other paradise-like sweets you will not find anywhere else. Amazing! We never... More

Very good quality and large selection of pastries and cakes. Prices are quite high, but it's worth paying for good quality and taste. Quite far from the city center.

Our host for a recent stay in Milano suggested this shop, and it was a great stop. Morning cappucino for me, fresh orange juice for my wife, and the most scrumptious pastry goodies we could imagine. Both the young ladies at the counter even spoke English, and they were quick to attend to our needs - great service provided with... More

although not downtown but in a not so smart area, the products are freshly made, first class and reasonably priced much better than those of the so called elegant downtown competitors. I tried their catering service, good, timely, well organised, served and reasonably priced and I can certainly recommend this pasticceria.

The owner is lovely and always offers you a free sample as you make your choice. The prices are not... More

My Italian friends adviced me about this bakery, who should have been the best of the best in Milan. I had breakfast here and I had to notice that the cornetto was a little bit crispy, like it was here since two days or so. My girlfriend ate a slice of raspberry chocolate tart and she said that the taste... More
