Pasticceria Gruè


Forbes Italia, Gambero Rosso and dozens of newspapers, local and national:: Pasticceria Gruè is definitely a place to be to enjoy the most original flavor of Christmas in Rome.

Here the proposals of Panettone are really imaginative - and all very tasty. Some examples? Il Panettone Pears and Chocolate, the one flavored Sacher, the Mandorlato, the Caramela (with Melannurca IGP Campana and Caramello) and the real king: the Gianduioso, an award-winning panettone, which has stolen the hearts of all those who have tasted it. La Pasticceria Gruè is located in viale Regina Margherita, 95/99.


After an immersion in the softness of the panettone, a dip in the sweetness of the Buche de Noel (the Christmas log) - and what better address than Charlotte, in the San Giovanni area?

In the gourmet boutique, created by Claudia Martelloni, always passionate about French cuisine, the log is offered in 4 variants: White Christmas, with vanilla and pecans, Wonder with hazelnut and milk chocolate, the greedy Black Forest with its triumph of chocolate and sour cherries and the lighter version, Exotic, with coconut, hazelnut, mango and passion fruit.

Grezzo Raw Chocolate


How to end our journey in the flavors of Christmas in Rome, if not with a jump into the world of chocolate?
It is impossible, then, not to mentioning on Raw Raw Chocolate, which offers raw chocolate, 100% plant-based and handmade, one by one. Here chocolate, in addition to being organic, is obtained from roasted cocoa beans.

The choice to spoil the palate is, as ever, vast: triple chocolate nougat, the one with almonds, raisins and spices, the tasty nougat with creamy heart pistachio and, of course, the classic hazelnut with whole hazelnuts.
