The owner was friendly and helpful, letting us sample the classic cantuccio and another favour that we asked to try. Both were delectable: crispy on the outside, slightly chewy on the inside, morish without being too sweet. Bought four little bags of about 150g each...More

We came here to try out cantucci (local almond cookies). The owner was really nice and gave us free samples that were straight from the oven. We took two different kinds: chocolate and rum and also a big chocolate cookie. Definitely worth trying!
