Overview

The oldest chocolate factory Romeo Viganotti, founded in 1866, is still today a workshop unchanged, that makes use of machinery and molds period. The traditional products of the factory are the pralines: Boers, biscuits, chocolate creams, peels, sugar, liqueurs, kisses autumn and many others. Alongside the pralines are the dragees fantasies spiced fondant, milk and white, the Ginrvrine, drops of liqueur, the fondant and marzipan more The recipe, ingredients, machinery, processes and "secrets" are handed down unchanged from one owner to another: from the family of Romeo Viganotti Roberto Pastorino, until Alessandro Boccardo, owner since 1999. In chocolate it seems that time has stopped, that the tranquility and patience are the right way to work. For 150 years, each chocolate is the result of long and accurate manual processing: small "jewels" to be savored.

This place was extremely difficult to find. I am talking about the chocolate shop here. They have 3 sites, all close together, and we didn't get to try the ice cream. The chocolate shop had a tiny sign, the whole building was being renovated, and...More

Viganotti has a gelateria, pasticerria and cioccolateria all next door to each other. The gelateria has very creative flavors such as beer, dark chocolate and orange. Take some time to read all the different choices because they have many flavors I did not see anywhere...More
