Caffe e Pasticerria

A day without un cafe (a coffee) and una pasta
(no, not that kind of pasta, in this case it means a pastry!) is like a a day without sunshine in Arizona!

Whether early morning or late afternoon, take a break and head for the local caffe (coffee bar) for a freshly brewed espresso or macchiato (coffee with a dash of milk) and a creamy house made cannoli -- or two.

Some of the best coffee bars in Italy include: Barrati & Milano in Torino; Spinnato Antico Caffe in Palermo; and Tuttobene in Firenze.

And don't forget to stop by the local pasticerria (pastry shop) and pick up some mouth watering house made chocolates for those late night cravings.

Ciao e a presto,
