Anyone know the little bakery next to Portico d'Octavia?

Hi all, I've been going crazy trying to remember the name of a little bakery that is right next to Portico d'Octavia. They had some FANTASTIC torts, most were named after composers.

Anyone been there and can help me maintain my sanity? (This is like getting the song "It's a small world" stuck in your head)

I haven't been to either, but does one of these names ring a bell?

La Dolceroma at via del Portico d'Ottavia 21?
(This one says he makes Austrian specialities.)

Rosa Limentani at via del Portico d'Ottavia 1?

It might be La Doceroma. It is located right next to the last ruin as you walk away from Teatro Marcello. I think this is Via Campitelli. There is a hostaria next to it on the other side.

It is a real small shop. I'll definately be going back this trip, as we are staying near it. It was just SO GOOD!!

The crazy part is I have a movie of the bakers pulling the dough, but nothing on the name of the place. Arrgghhh.

I'm certain this is a few doors up from the last ruin and probably not the one but I'll still throw it out there .

It was pointed out to me once on a Context Rome tour.

Isn't antico forno a chain? I think there was one close to the apt we rented by Campo dei Fiori.

It is not a chain; there is no connection whatsoever between the Antico Forno del Ghetto and the Antico Forno Campo dei Fiori, and neither of them has anything to do with the Antico Forno Roscioli on via dei Chiavari.

I FOUND IT!!!

It is the hostaria next to da Giggetto, Portico d'Octavia 21. So the actual name must be La Doleroma, as Zerlina suggested.

AH, now life is good. Ha ha.
