One of my greatest discoveries when walking to Santa Maria Maggiore (one of the stunning must-see cathedrals) was coming across this bakery/deli/wine bar/restaurant called Panella. It was the window arrangement which first caught our eyes: lots of turtles made of bread! I loved the turtles so much I bought one (for a whopping 10 euros!). They make the most incredible cakes, breads, you name it. And they have a deli with lots of delicious things and a wine bar so it’s ideal for breakfast, lunch or aperitivo! It was full of locals buying their bread for the weekend or just enjoying the lovely terrace and a quiche or a cake. A must visit!
