If you call it dessert, pudding, afters or sweet it does not matter  : at the end of  a more important meal in Italy you need a” dolce”

Biscotti di Prato or Cantucci, traditionally with almonds, to dip in the special Vin santo wineIMG_1551

Torta della Nonna (Grandmother’s Cake) – A pie-like Italian dessert traditionally filled with crema pasticciera (custard) and pine nuts.IMG_2443

Tiramisù is maybe the most popular dessert among Italian specialties and it cannot miss for any Italian party. Tiramisù is a fairly recent creation but Italians like so much refreshing” spoon dessert”( eaten with a spoon) eaten  at the end of a typical Italian meal.IMG_4091

Gelato,in British English Ice cream, no description for this experience. Probably the Fiordilatte  (light vanilla flavoured) with a sweet cherry  on top  or chocolate  small pieces.So many new flavors every year.Don ‘t forget the Gelato Festival .DSC00258
