My husband and I stopped by this wonderful pasticceria in Sept. The people behind the counter are very kind and helpful. We shared a large slice of a Lucchese torte made with ricotta cheese and it was delicious. We also bought a small bag of cookies called ricciarelli and our only regret was that we did not buy 2 bags.... More

from outside it seems a tipical Italian bar-pasticceria but the quality of food is special: fresh and tasty. And the prices are very low.
