Time Out says

Panettone, the sweet, pillow-y, fruit-studded Italian Christmas cake, is making a comeback. Bakers in Italy and even as far away as the U.S. are drawn to the challenge of getting this finicky fruitcake right. Pasticceria Cucchi in Porta Genova has been baking panettone in its humble kitchen for over 70 years and the results have been consistently excellent. Stop in their elegant, old-world shop to purchase a full cake, which unlike most other pastry shops Cucchi sells year-round. Or if you can, grab a curbside table–hot property on weekend mornings–and order a slice of their fluffy masterpiece to go with your morning cappuccino.

Time Out tip: On a warm summer night, skip the plain panettone slice and instead order pangelà, a panettone-gelato sandwich, for dessert.
