Expert review of Pansa

Enjoy chocolate heaven at the foot of the Duomo.

Pansa celebrated its 180th anniversary this year. That's a lot of chocolate.

Food and drink: 

Even a professed 'non-sweet eater' like me can't fail to be moved by the gorgeousness displayed in the window and at the counters at Pansa. The creations are stunning: meringues, candied fruits that look like vegetables, little cakes and the most exquisite selection of chocolates I've ever seen. My personal favourites are the chocolate dipped candied orange peel - perfect for serving after dinner with coffee.

Ambience: 

Look left from the counter and you'll see a lovely private little area with a few tables where you can sit and have a coffee with that irresistible cake. If you prefer people watching, take a table at the front of the shop.

Service: 

Sweet. The effects of the chocolate, no doubt.

Location: 

If you're looking at the Duomo you're standing yards from it. 

Price advice: 

It's not cheap, but then this is the finest chocolate around. If you're staying for coffee you'll pay a premium for a seat at a table.
