About Us

The Cantuccio di San Lorenzo was born as a pastry workshop in the heart of Florence, near the Medici Chapels and the Basilica of San Lorenzo, in via Sant'Antonino 23 red.

Born from the tradition of the Marini family, the soft cantucci of Il Cantuccio di San Lorenzo are a typical Tuscan product sought and appreciated all over the world. The artisanal preparation and the continuous research of high quality raw materials have given life to a successful family business, with the opening of a new laboratory and the recent inauguration of an exclusive Cafeteria-Cantucceria, a meeting point for gourmands for coffee connoisseurs.

A common characteristic of all the products of San Lorenzo is the abundance of raw materials used, which give the product its characteristic softness and an exquisite taste unchanged over time.

Recipes from the ancient Forno Marini, handed down to the young nephew Francesca, still preserve the care and the passion of craftsmanship of the past and keep the secret of the traditional flavors of typical Florentine sweets.
