Just up the road (Via Letizia) from my apartment in Ponte a Serraglio is a small shop selling bread and pizza by the slice. I am ashamed to say that I hadn’t been there in my 10 years in Ponte. It was clear that I should remedy this and when some friends suggested I join them for a mortadella and beer evening there I quickly agreed. It was great fun and I have also been to a fish and chip evening…also excellent. Keep an ear to the ground for these enjoyable events.
The friendly owner makes delicious bread, biscuits, apple pies and pizza. I have now become a regular.
The shop is on the right as you go towards La Villa. There is lots of parking, but it is an easy walk from Ponte a Serraglio.
Sounds like a slice of Heaven to me. Low key perfection as only the Italians can!
It is very low key and very good.
Thanks. Always passed it and never thought it was worth a look in
It is worth dropping in. Try one of the special evenings, they are fun.
How lovely to have this within walking distance! 🙂
It is only about 5 minutes from my house…excellent.
Another great find.
It should not have taken me so long to try it.
I must confess that we have driven past it quite a few times, but we have never stopped. We shall certainly do it next time we are around…
The bread and the pizza are both very good, well worth a try.
Just along from our house. We usually have a pizza slice and a ‘birra alla spina piccolo’ while waiting for the washing to dry at the nearby fabulous laundrette (on right hand side way to pizza shop).
What a good idea!
Excellent idea! I have walked passed both on numeral occasions,, wondering if these shops were still open. So many shops have packed up over the last years…. Must have been wrong time of day, not being used to midday closing.
Thats a nice slice of pizza they sell. I have to admit i’ve only been in there once in 10 years also. I’ll look out for the events too.
The events are fun. I’m not sure how they advertise, I was told by friends.
Just had pizza at our local. Nothing like a good local!!! Enjoy Deb.
P.S. I think I’ve become addicted to those flaky pastries of scrumptiousness at Marchetti!!
Was your local Tinderbox? They do the best pizzas. The pastries at Marchetti are very addictive.
We discovered this on one of our daily walks. I love the low key atmosphere. It’s all about the food. We get pizza, vino and pick up a pane patata. Last time we also got absolutely delicious cocoanut cookies. I also noticed she makes christmas cakes here, so locals should make not of this as these are made in house and smelled heavenly.
I love those coconut cookies! I’m pleased I finally made it to the little shop.
Albano’s place is one of our first stops when in Bagni. We love their focaccia, pizza, bread and baked goods. We would have just driven by forever had it not been for a local telling us about it. Didn’t know about the events but will certainly look out for them when we return.
Albany is very friendly, which is nice. I am now a regular…finally.
Fish and chip evening…..when we were in that area, they had a huge fish and chip festival (during the summer) – – – what an unexpected festival in Italy…..we loved it. Anyway…..this place looks super cute!
That must be the Barga Fish and Chip festival. Many people from Barga left for Scotland last century. Quite a few have returned and it is quite likely that you will hear people speak English with a strong Scottish accent.
Sounds like a good fun little place. Next time !!!
It is fun, you will love it.
