Forno del Ghetto review Rate it

Run by three dour ladies, this tiny shop has no sign but is immediately recognisable by the line of slavering regulars outside. Among other goodies, they come for the unforgettable damson and ricotta (and chocolate and ricotta) pies. The lunchtime closing is suspended during the summer.

A dense, rustic fruitcake, sold by the slice (a chunk really), comforted me when I left Rome last Spring. I'll go back this May to try other pastries.
