Enjoy a tasty tradition after breakfast and after lunch. Relish our Amaretti Chiostro di Saronno also accompanied by sweet wine or crumbled on a fruit salad or ice cream.


They can be found all over Italy, and often called "biscotti da credenza", meaning biscuits that can be left out on the kitchen sideboard for a long time, always ready as a quick, occasional snack.


The unmistakable flavor of Italian amaretti, while reminiscent of childhood, never ceases to impress each time you open the packet.

Wonderful both as the highlight of breakfast and the star attraction in your desserts.


Amaretti are small biscuits much loved and widespread in many Italian regions.

The Italian word "amaro" means "bitter," and as these little biscuits are flavored with bitter almonds, they were called "amaretti" - literal translation "the little bitter ones."


According to the legend, Amaretti were first baked by a young couple to honor the cardinal of Milano. 

By slowly baking a blend of sugar, apricot kernels, and egg whites we make the round crunchy bitter/sweet almond biscuits called Amaretti. Decorated with sparkling white sugar and wrapped in colorful papers our Company offers the widest range of these crunchy delicacies.

The “Chiostro di Saronno” is an ancient Franciscan cloister located in the centre of the town of Saronno. This is the home of our Company and the place where we keep our more prestigious recipes.
