“Great cantucci to get along with your coffee (or hot chocolate)”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

I always love to see how the bakers work and in this place you can see from the front store window how they roll the dough and cut the cantucci, which melt in your mouth if you dip them in coffee (or milk/hot chocolate like a true Italian).

We went to il cantuccio di san lorenzo last week based on the trip advisor reviews. The cantucci were okay. Nothing special. We've had grocery store cantucci that were comparable.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

We were very excited to try the biscotti and other sweets from this shop after reading the reviews. We tried various sweets and were not especially impressed, although everything seemed freshly made. Prices were also reasonable The staff were not very friendly or helpful.
