Fodor's Review

Turn-of-the-20th-century wooden cabinets, marble-top tables, and cast-iron ovens characterize this neighborhood bakery. Come here for the locally beloved snacks that can be combined to make an inexpensive meal. The big pot on the counter holds the delicious regional specialty pani ca meusa (boiled calf's spleen with caciocavallo cheese and salt). The squeamish can opt for some chickpea fritters, an enormous arancino (stuffed, fried rice ball), or the outstanding cannoli.
