Have been many times in Siena, but never miss great products from their bakery. Whatever you will choose, you won't be disappointed. Just pick from paninis, ricciarelli, cavallucci, pan forte, everything is so delicious. Yummy, can't wait next visit to eat some more.

This is the place you can buy original panforte and cantuccini. The staff ladies were so nice and offered us a small pieces for tasting. This is a traditional bakery and not a tourist shop. Really reccomend it!
