Are there any bakeries producing pannetone in San Francisco? I love this lighter alternative to fruit cake.

  1. I don't know about in the city, but Emporio Rulli in Larkspur does a couple different types. They're beautiful!

      Emporio Rulli on Chestnut in SF has them as well. LInguira Bakery has a simple version, but it might be too late.You might check Donato Bakery, but I haven't tried that one yet.

    2. Emporio Rulli's are delicious, beautiful, and quite expensive. On Sunday I left one panettone in the case at Liguria, probably gone by now. I noticed that Italian French Baking had a larger size of panettone round for $10, but I didn't buy any and haven't tasted them. In the past, Eastern Bakery in Chinatown baked panettone, but I've not tried those either and don't know if it still makes them.

      1. Thorough Bread on Church @ Market has excellent panettones -- would call and check as they make a fairly limited supply.

          I just saw many on hand at Thorough Bread, in two different sizes.

        2. I believe Acme makes them. I'd try calling the Ferry Plaza store.

              Acme is more of a nice raisin bread in sort of pannetone form. They make it all year.

            2. Dianda's on Mission, between 24th and 25th, appears to bake their own. I've never had it, but their other traditional pastries/cakes are fabulous.

                Dianda's is GREAT! I live around the corner and we get 2-3 Pannetone every year, you can order ahead or plan on getting it earlier than later because there can be quite a line and they get sold out.
