On this page you will find an authentic Italian desserts menu from my favourite restaurant in Maremma, Italy: Ristorante Il Leccio near Massa Marittima. Here they not only serve excellent home-made and freshly prepared antipasti, primi and secondi piatti, but mouthwatering classic Italian desserts.
Looking for traditional Italian dessert recipes rather than a menu? I've got those too! They start at the bottom of the page.
The photograph above of one the more well-known traditional Italian desserts, Cassata, is by kind courtesy of checcastef who has some wonderful photographs of Italian food in her Flickr photostream.

The restaurant often serves additional "dolci", such as wedges of fresh ripe pineapple, or "tasting sorbetti" - a plate of individual small glasses filled with different handmade fruit sorbets.
