this small bakery doesn't show the amazing taste it holds within, not even by looking at the pastries, that look modest, unimpressive and even slightly burnt. bu the second you will taste it, you will know you found heaven, and it's a place in Rome!!...More

There’s no signage on this little corner shop that has an unfurled awning above its narrow door. Therefore, unless there’s a line of people to indicate that there’s something inside worth queuing for, it’s easy to pass this no-frills pasticceria by as I have done...More

I made a mistake and asked for pizza and got a very harsh response. Pizza dolce is what they do here - seems it’s available later in the day. So instead I bought some macaroons and ricotta cake. I have never had cake as good...More

Ghetto
The mini-neigbourhood Ghetto holds tight to its

community. Times changed in the 20th century, but the
tiny area still retains its mix of tradition,
community, and history. Ancient and medieval
