You have already noticed I like the vintage side of Rome, haven’t you? So here’s another one of my favorite places “from the past”, just in the middle of that nice residential area of Colle Oppio, and a stone’s throw from Colosseum and Termini station.

One of those small family-run shops, with warm, wooden interiors welcoming you like the hugs of your mother, and the air filled with the bewitching scent of fresh biscuits’ fragrance!

The Premiata Fabbrica di Biscotti Cipriani is an award-winning factory of high quality baked biscuits: a great little shop, tucked away just off the main avenue of via Merulana, on the small tree-lined street of via Carlo Botta. A place frequented by a loyal clientele (I think it’s adorable how some of those people shopping here, are remembering how they grew up with this, or that type of cookies).

The proximity of Cipriani’s shop to the primary school Ruggero Bonghi, in fact, has made it a usual target for hordes of hungry, little students: no wonder if, as grown-ups, they’re still fond of this place!

Cipriani‘s biscotti al limone (lemon cookies), torta cioccolato e pere (cake with chocolate and pears), or manicaretti alle mandorle (almond delicacies) are somehow unforgettable.

I love that they also have a selection of Gluten-free and vegan delicacies – a further expression of the great attention given to customers – which enriches the range of tasty products they’re offering.

Cipriani’s is a bit pricey actually, but the exceptional quality of their products and ingredients – and the joy they bring! – makes it absolutely worth your money.
