Cannoli Siciliani and much more…
When one thinks of typical Sicilian desserts, the “cannolo” almost always comes to mind. At Nonna Vincenza pastry shop, they sure do make some delicious cannoli! They offer them in different varieties and in two sizes (mini and normal). But here, you’ll find much more than just cannoli. There are a number of other Sicilian specialties (the “cassata” for extreme sugar lovers) as well as homemade gelato. You can also head there for breakfast when fresh croissants are served.
At Nonna Vincenza pastry shop, there are also many lovely gift ideas for those who don’t know which souvenirs to bring back home. The second half of the store has on display a number of Sicilian liquors, pestos, jams, creams and many other sweets which are easy to put in your luggage. Not to mention that the light blue packaging and the little details that go into it make for a very refined look. They really know how to make you want to go back and buy a few things for yourself. It’s no surprise the place is called “nonna” (grandmother)!
If you are on your way to Trastevere from Campo de Fiori, Nonna Vincenza is a place worth stopping at.
