Cafe Pasticceria Dagnino: Sicilian Bakery in Rome

Located in an odd little shopping plaza behind Piazza Repubblica, Pasticceria Dagnino is a little gem in an otherwise nice but bland area off Via Nazionale. 

The pasticceria is truly old school, with classical music playing softly under the din of customers browsing and ordering. Apparently on Sundays there is even a live piano player. 

During meal hours, the busiest counter is the one dishing out hot pre-made food tavola calda style. The food can be enjoyed at round tables inside the internal shopping center. 

Me, however? Even though it was lunchtime, I beelined to the opposite counter where Dagnino displays its amazing pastry selection. The pastries are all Sicilian and they are truly some of the best in Rome. 

So when you need a serious cannoli fix, this should be your first stop. And cassata? They have that too. 

Small cannoli are €1.50 and the large are €3

Cheers to that.

    Thanks for this article. Makes me miss Rome. Whenever we visit Rome, the first thing we do is take coffee and cannoli at Dagnino. And we will have lunch there at least twice during our stay.
