Pasticceria Nannini
Cafe/Sandwich Bar
Via Banchi di Sopra, 24, Siena; Tel.: 0577-236009
Nannini is Siena's most famous pastry shop. Founded by grandpa Guido in 1931, Nannini is still serving up slices of dark panforte and chewy almond ricciarelli to locals and tourists alike even though, in the 21st century, the Nannini family is better known in Italy for rock star daughter, Gianna, and Formula 1 race car driver son, Alessandro. Stop at one of the two convenient locations: the original Conca d"Oro, only a few steps from the Campo, or the shop near the bus station at Via Massetana Romana, 42/44 (tel. 0577-45533).
