Pasticceria Buscioni is an old pastry shop located in the Campo di Marte stadium area. It’s worth driving there to try their superb paste di mandorla, cookie-sized almond pastries that literally melt in the mouth.
Buscioni’s Paste di Mandorla come in different shapes and ingredients – some are made with nuts, others with dried fruits. My favorite pasta di mandorla is a shiny pastry with a whole almond on top. The exterior is chewy and the interior soft and moist. I usually have it with black coffee.
