You won't be able to pass by this place without taking a detour inside. A big selection of baked goodies, focaccia, and prepared pasta to go.

Indecent prices that the quality of the food cannot in any way justify! Prix indécents que la qualité de la nourriture ne peut en aucun cas justifier! Prezzi indecenti che la qualità del cibo non può neanche giustificare!

Good quality place but a bit over charged. I enjoyed the coffee and Marron glasse - it's season now!

I have just discovered that my favorite bakery in Rome also offers great aperitif or aperi-cena as my roman friends call it. We sat outside in a very refined roman-ambiance. I ordered a delicious fruit cocktail and we were served a plate with quality delicious...More

Went two mornings in a row, enjoyed pastries and coffee. Waiters remembered us and were very kind, always appreciated in a big city. Some of the more delicious pastries sell out by 10, 11 so get up early to sample those. Lovely atmospheres great staff,...More

Great breakfast, coffee, service and location. Within walking distance from our hotel, we stumbled across Panella and was pleasantly surprised.

Esquilino
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only
way to describe the Esquilino neighbourhood. The
Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas
in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s
famous seven hills. From an ancient neighbourhood to
its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub,
