Sandri, Perugia

32 Corso Vannucci
Italy 06100
Tel: 39 075 572 4112's insider take:

The interior of this historic bar-pasticceria on Perugia's main street is a museum of sorts; its carved wooden display shelves, painted ceiling, chandeliers, and marble bar all date back to the 19th century. But don't be fooled by the old-school atmosphere: Sandri's pastry chefs are on the cutting edge, turning out creative confections like meditazione (like triangular tiramisù pastries). More traditional Perugian treats can be had here, too, like torciglione—soft almond biscuits shaped like snakes eating their tails. In the evening, locals stop in for aperitivi.

Closed Mondays, and three weeks in August and January; call ahead.
