Catene Cafe has had a transformation. The gelato counter has been replaced by delicious pastries.
The grand opening was this evening and the lovely Paolo was in fine form.
The selection of pastries is excellent and we were able to sample quite a few…and they were just as delicious as they look. The girls were mobbed by people wanting to try things.
Good luck Paolo, I hope your new venture is a huge success.
Looks great can’t wait to try it out. Looks familiar but I can’t place where it is?
Catene Cafe is on the main road in Fornoli, not far from the Ponte Catene.
Thank you look forward to visiting.
Congratulations Paulo , food looks lovely
It tasted good too.
The pastries look delicious, I’m looking forward to sampling a few next time I am in Fornoli.
You won’t be disappointed.
Everything looks delicious and yummy! Best wishes to Paolo!
I hope he does very well.
Good luck to Paolo. The pastries look divine.
Everything we tried was excellent.
He is gorgeous – we also went this evening and we wish him well – lots of good memories with this lovely man
Paolo was the very first person I met in Bagni di Lucca. He has been a wonderful part of our lives here.
Another great review and place to try. I came to Italy to work on the family house in Vico and I brought with me a list of restaurants to try and places to visit. My wife and I have enjoyed reading your blog. Thank you
Thank you for your comments. There are lots of great things to see and do in Bagni di Lucca.
We’ll be arriving in twelve days and will definitely make Paolo’s place one of our first stops. Everything looks delicious.
We are leaving in a few days. I am pleased to have been here for the event.
Delicious cakes and handsome Paolo.
Paolo is as delightful as he is handsome.
What a delectable selection of delicious goodies to choose from! Lovely to see Paolo again, as handsome as ever. All the very best with your business, Paolo – just shows your creative spirit! Thank you, Debra, for sharing this pasticceria with us readers.
The pastries are wonderful. I’m sure they will be popular.
I think the new venture could be called ‘The Face Plant Cafe’:) I think you must come home now, you are having more than your fair share of fun!
I will be home very soon, but I may have to call in to see Paolo one more time.
Lucky you, Debra!
You should come and try some.
Great to see the delicious looking pastries added to the delights on offer…..his gelato was also very good.
Paolo’s gelato was excellent, I am sorry it is gone.
I’ll have to stop in and check out the new offerings, for research, you know.
