Just inside the entrance of beautiful shopping mall Galleria Umberto from Via Toledo, the city’s main shopping street sits the dinky Pasticceria Mary. Mary sells all the local sweet specialites, here’s our little guide for what to ask for!
Babà: a little cake baked in the oven and then covered in rum
Sfogliatella Riccia: shaped a bit like a shell, this pastry is crunchy on the outside and filled with lovely sweet ricotta on the inside
Sfogliatella Frolla: a similar kind of thing but with shortcrust pastry as the shell
We reccommend trying AT LEAST one of each, but don’t blame us if you feel a bit queasy afterwards…
Around ten minutes walk from the hostel, get onto Via Toledo and walk towards Piazza Plebiscito, it’ll be on your left hand side, just inside the impressive Galleria Umberto.
