Even if you have Chinese food in Prato (and you have a lot of choices around Porta Pratese) you will want to top off a meal with cantuccini, the city’s famous twice-baked biscuits. Made with almonds and pine nuts, cantuccini are a staple throughout Italy, but Prato has the edge with a centuries-old recipe that yields an especially delicious product, which here in Tuscany is often dipped in Vin Santo, a sweet dessert wine, or in coffee, depending on the time of day. The time-honored place to try them is Biscottificio Antonio Mattei at Via Ricasoli 20.
