Renowned for some of the best desserts, Italians know how to make a pudding! In Italy, ‘il dolce’ is not only a sweet way to end a lunch or dinner, it’s also the way many Italians start their day.
Sweet treats and desserts are a part of the history of Italian food. And even for the most disciplined traveller, it is hard to say no to all the delicious temptations that await once in Italy. You will find that every bar, café or patisserie will offer an endless display of cookies, chocolates or some other sweet enticement. Italian desserts range in flavour from slightly bitter to sweet – usually not overwhelmingly sweet, and they are often best served with wine.
Here at Cucina Rustica, located just off the leafy St Pauls Square in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter, our Dolci menu offers an array of delicious traditional Italian sweet treats. We obviously love all of them but here are a few of our favourites…
