The bakery “Dolci Capricci” also supplies the famous 'Giardini La Mortella' with sweets and cakes that leave their mark. An obvious and very rewarding example comes from a recognition of an English tourist who, with a letter sent to Silvana and Claudio, has enhanced the exquisite “lemon Caprese” tasted during his stay on our island green, at the Giardini La Mortella!
A dining experience not to be missed for your “Dolci Capricci” is no doubt, therefore, the special Lemon Caprese!
