Today we want to talk about Pasticceria Beatrice and about how, seduced by a suggestion, we arrived in this paradisiac place… and we let ourselves enter into temptation – without even realizing it – because of croissants and zeppole.
You need to know that, even if patisserie in Piazza Carducci is well-known for its Piedmontese artisan confectionery products (first of all, gianduiotti, but also cremini are pretty good), it serves delicious croissants with pistachio, zabaione, gianduia, chantilly, chocolate and white cream. And if patisserie is quite expensive (but, oh… if it is worth it!), breakfast here is absolutely affordable. And if, like Dante in Paradise, you let us guide you, we can assure you will follow our example: never a single croissant! After all, they go on taking them out of the oven. And if some croissant are stuffed with little cream (like pistachio ones), those with white chocolate cream have a rich and intense filling. They are very good and you can choose among various fillings, what else do you want? Oh, sure, zeppole. Because here they are heavenly, both baked and fried, so why choose? And if all of this was not enough, there are jam croissants, brioches, berliners and many more: you won’t leave this place on an empty stomach. Obviously, you should order a cappuccino, too: it’s made with Caffè Vergano – which means good quality – and is served in retro style porcelain cups, just like all the place.
To sum up, from the heaven of taste to the hell of temptation (with no need to repent). But pay attention: the place is quite small and often crowded, just like Dante’s circles.
