    Librogusteria Il pensatoio: Books and food

    by oriettaIT Updated Dec 2, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I heard about this place doing my research, it is a small but very nice and unusual shop. I would say it is perfect as it put together two of my passions, food and books!
    the entrance of the shop is a cheese and food specialty shop, you can find a lot of cheese, salami, spices, tea, oil and wine from the local area. It smelled wonderful and was very tempting! If I was not headed to the Osteria Alla Fragoletta (see restaurant section) I would have bought lunch here for sure!
    After this room the rest of the shop is a bookstore, they had several cooking books and lots of interesting unusual publications, the kind of books you hardly ever find in those big and named bookstore. There was also a foreign languages books sections.

    What to buy: Food for your stomach and food for your mind!

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The window of this tiny bakery was really great! they had several different traditional desert on show, they were cheap and look delicious!
    Unfortunately we just had a huge lunch so we did not felt like trying it but i would if I go back to Mantova!

    They also sell bread and several kind of small patisserie

    What to buy: The local specialty Sbrisolona, a sort of big cookie made of flour sugar egg and almonds. It is kind of hard to bite but delicious! In some other part of Italy they use to soak a similar thing with grappa... it is even better that way!

    Torta con i tagliolini: this one have real spaghetti in it, they are cooked on it and give it a very interesting look!
