Great "bar" for coffee and sweets. Limited menu for lunch. Fun place to drink coffee standing up with the locals in the morning.

Delicious coffee and dolci near the Campo

I love to stop in this caffe to have their wonderful cappuccino and a slice of chocolate panforte. Panforte is a confection made of honey paste, almonds and fruit. This caffe also has a nice selection of beautifully wrapped confections to take home as gifts. The clean, modern bathroom is a big plus, too!

Wonderful caffe and pastry shop. Also gelato. Public restrooms!

There are two Nannini shops on the same street. One is a gelato stand with a bakery and caffé next door. The other, closer to Il Campo, is larger and all in one.

We had gelato at the smaller one (fabulous), then stopped for coffee at the other. Also bought a bunch of pastry. They have public restrooms in the store (the larger one) – good to remember.

Not a restaurant, but then why should it be?! A great caffe and a buffet lunch.

Just off the Campo, at the beginning of the Banchi di Sopra is Pasticceria Nannini.

It is a richly decorated, multi-purpose cafe-bar with delicious sandwiches, cakes and a variety of delicious cantucci, ricciarelli, panforte, coffee, ice cream, etc., served whether at the bar or seated.

At lunch time in the back of the cafe a buffet-lunch is set with a variety of tasty cold and hot salads and dishes. The cost is Euro 10 per person and it is well worth the money if your inclination is not to sit for a fully served lunch in a restaurant. Coffee, beer or wine, water and desserts (the latter you can point to from the rich display) will be extra but again, a good deal.
