Fodor's Review

The legend over the door reads "Castroni Droghe Coloniali," but for years this international food emporium has been known by a single moniker: Castroni. Opening its flagship shop near the Vatican in 1932, this gastronomic paradise has long been Rome's port-of-call for decadent delicacies from around the globe; there are now more than 10 locations throughout the city. Jonesing expats and study-abroad students pop in for Twinings teas, exotic spices from Spain, and even some good old-fashioned Kraft Macaroni & Cheese. Even Italians stop by to check out the vast assortment of coffee and tea, decadent candies, and other sweets. If you're just doing a little window shopping, be sure to try their in-house roasted espresso, some of the best coffee in Rome. Just be sure to bring an extra suitcase: you will want to buy everything.
