Breakfast at Pasticceria Regoli in Rome

I have a major soft spot for the Portuense attitude and fluffy maritozzi of Il Maritozzaro, but I am not one to deny a good thing when I see it.

Pasticceria Regoli makes seriously delicious maritozzi.

Remember- a maritozzo is a classic Roman pastry. Traditionally a Lenten treat, the bun topped with panna (heavy cream) is now an indulgent breakfast option year round.

Regoli, a classic pastry shop that turned 100 this year, turns out more than just lovely maritozzi.

Think tarts topped with wild strawberries and cannoli.

A few years ago, Regoli expanded its space and now has tables and chairs in the bar area that neighbors the original shop.

The bar is filled with mirrors. It’s a bit terrifying to watch your self infinitely reflected while trying to consume a cream laden monstrosity.

Don’t despair- it’s basically impossible to be dainty while eating a maritozzo, and the mirrors come in handy for wiping off the whipped cream that will inevitably end up on the tip of your nose.

The spread and the setup is why I picked Regoli as the best breakfast option in Rome when asked to round up my favorite Rome eateries for Thrillist.
