The freshest, most delicious biscotti ever served by the prettiest, kindest people! It was absolutely impossible to leave Florence without going back for more and to bring some home.

This is only for confectionary, but my word, you need to go get some. This was simply the best pastry I had in Italy. To clarify, the yummy chocolate biscuit was the low-point of the tastes. The rum-soaked biscuits were so amazingly good, I wished...More

Right amount of sweetness as opposed to what we get in US. We also tried the complementary wine with biscotti

Just another highly rated place that has nothing to do with how real cantuccini were and should be made. Cantuccini sold at this place are not bad tasting, they are just a convenient way of cheating and serving unknowingly tourists some desert using cheap techniques...More

Based on the tradition of the Marini's family, the CANTUCCI MORBIDI produced by Il Cantuccio San Lorenzo is a typical Tuscan product sought after and appreciated worldwide. Ancient recipes, handed down to the young niece Francesca, that still maintain passion and craftsmanship care, to get traditional flavors of typical Florentine pastries.
