Situated just off the Corso Vittorio Emanuele, Il Fornaio is a bakery specializing in more kinds of breads and pastries than you could possibly sample. It’s just down the street from Campo di Fiori and if you’re travelling down the CVE on your way to or from the Vatican it’s a convienient place to pick up something sweet. We stopped here to grab some cookies before heading to St. Peters on Christmas Eve. During the summer, it’s also a quick place to get a cold soda and can be a lifesaver at the end of a sweltering day.
There are typically two ladies working there. One at the cash register and the other behind the counter. I know more Latin than Italian, so if they were rude (as one reviewer claims) I am always blissfully unaware. What I am aware of is the bag of goodies in my hand as I head out to my next fantastic destination. Romans are fond of extracts when cooking and traditionally use less sugar than we’re used to so keep that in mind.
Prices are according to weight, so order as much or as little as you like. When in Rome…
