100% gluten free pastries in Rome!

This time I am very happy to tell you about La Pasticceria, a 100% gluten free pastry shop in the heart of Rome.

Created in 2014, La Pasticceria is a few blocks away from Termini, the main train station of the city.

That makes it easy to reach, and this is good news indeed because if you are familiar with Rome or if you have been living here like myself in the past, you might know that public transportation does not work properly and unless you have a car, it can be sometimes complicated to reach certain neighbourhoods.

I arrived at La Pasticerria on Thursday morning to have breakfast and get familiar with the place.

The pastry shop is very small and there is no room to sit.

Pastries are available only to take away.

There are gluten free chocolate chip cookies, brownies, brioches, Italian crostata, cheesecakes, and more typical and traditional cakes that vary according to the season.

As it’s Christmas time now, I found gluten free panettone and the strufoli, little fried puffy pastry balls topped with honey. My favorite when I was a child.

If you happen to be at La Pasticceria at lunch time, you can find freshly baked bread, focaccia and pizza.

I tasted the buckwheat bread and I did like it.

They tell me that all the mix are artisanal and made by them, they are careful at selecting the best possible ingredients and work hard to constantly improve their recipes.

Most of their clients are not celiac or gluten intolerant, just regular people who like the cakes here and that feels great to me that gluten free can be seen more and more as a valid alternative to wheat and no longer as a diet/fashion food and worse, as something that is tasteless.

Food is about sharing, not matter our choices or health issues.

My blog Baci di Dama Living gluten free is all about that and I am profoundly happy when I can find places like La Pasticceria where gluten free food tastes so good.

My choice for breakfast was a “girella” with chocolate cream that happened to be also lactose free (photo below).

The girella was a typical Italian dessert and when I was little, all children in Italy were so fond of it! When I saw it at La Pasticceria, I just couldn’t resist it, it brought me back such lovely memories and it was very good!

This is definitely I place that I do recommend.
