Pope’s favourite pasticceria revealed.


A religious website has got the scoop on Pope Benedict XVI’s favourite cake shop in Rome. According to Petrus (www.papanews.it), the pope is a patron of the Limentani pasticceria, near the Synagogue in the Jewish Ghetto, which also counts politicians Silvio Belusconi, Massimo D’Alema and Giuliano Ferrara among its customers. Owner Vilma Limentani revealed that the pope is particularly fond of her almond and cinnamon biscuits as well as ‘Jewish pizza’ (pizza ebraica), a hard cake made with candied fruits, raisins, almonds and pine nuts.

Limentani said her baked goods ended up on the pope’s table by chance when one of his doctors brought him a bag of almond and cinnamon biscuits from the bakery on a routine visit to the Vatican. Benedict sent a message complimenting Limentani on the biscuits, and since then the doctor always picks up a sweet treat for the pope every time he visits.

She added that since the kosher bakery does not use saturated animal fats, Benedict is free to indulge his sweet tooth without fearing for his cholesterol.

Pasticceria Limentani, Via del Portico d’Ottavia 1, tel. 066878637.
