LA PASQUALINA CAFE OF THE YEAR 2019 ACCORDING TO GAMBERO ROSSO
Tuesday 25th September 2018. The St. Regis Hotel in Rome held the Gambero Rosso award for Italy’s best cafe of 2019, in collaboration with Illy, and Riccardo Schiavi’s La Pasqualina won the prize. Elected unanimously by a renowned jury for the superb quality of the products, the careful research of healthy products and the educational projects around the food industry.
Following the success of 2016, La Pasqualina won its second award Illy Bar dell’Anno Gambero Rosso 2019 thanks to its famous panettone and home-made bread, cooked with a special sourdough, introducing also a peculiar salty ice-cream made with Strachitunt DOP cheese and a tomato sherbet.
106 years of excellent taste research and an accurate selection of the best products is something that has always characterised La Pasqualina and these principles allowed the cafe to be recognised as one of the Italian best places for eclecticism and quality. Riccardo special project is to trace the origin of all the products and their processing. This is something that goes beyond a good product and a good service.
“I believe that nowadays the most important and relevant thing that a cafe such as mine can do is to invest in creating a healthy and engaging place where people can meet. This is a project that I started first with children at school and then with adults, to make appointments at the cafe. A rather better alternative of staying home with our smartphones.” These are the words of Riccardo Schiavi, owner of La Pasqualina at its fourth generation.
La Pasqualina is a place where you can breathe culture, an aesthetic and ethic tribute to the food industry and a business challenge.
