Good place to stop at the end of the day after walking for 12km! Coffee was great. Cake choice would have been better earlier in the day but was acceptable.

Adorable welcomming staff. Huge selection of fantastic pastries. Great place for either quick chat or relaxing evening over glass of vine. Local pastas available as well

We popped in for a late breakfast and migrated to sandwich, cake and coffee. Loved it and will come again next time in Bologna. Arrivederci

Beautiful cakes in a traditional pasticceria, plenty of selection and very reasonably priced. We went every single day on our 4 day holiday and we are already looking forward to going back! The cannoli was my absolute favourite thing I've ever tasted!

We were here every morning trying their different pastries. Our favourites were the apple pastry and the ones with custard. Quick and friendly service, a very busy place among locals for coffee. Nice caffe lattes. Definitely go here!
