Nonna Italia


A crunchy Italian almond biscuit is something everyone needs in their life—sitting somewhere between sweet and savoury for those that enjoy more subtle flavours. We recommend trying it with a glass of vinsanto or your preferred dessert wine to cap off an excellent evening filled with traditional Italian foods.
