Everything you've read is true. This place is the real deal. Roberto made us sicilian cannoli by hand made-to-order. We craned our necks around to watch as he scooped the fresh ricotta into a perfect shell, dusted it with chocolate, and handed it to us with a gentle, warm smile that was not in the least bit forced. My favorite... More

Roberto really makes great treats. The Canoli was fab and please dont waste your calories on other shops and their treats, just get a beeline to Laboratorio. Finding the shop is a bit troublesome , took us a while. on the steps off Corso umberto. The cost is also very reasonable.

Having a massive sweet tooth and finding this place rated as no.1 on tripadvisor i could not pass up the opportunity to visit. Hit it up twice while in Taormina and found: The cannoli to be more enjoyable the two other bars i tried it in, but not blow your mind better or different like some reviews suggest. Other sweets...

As we didn't know what all the gorgeous looking sweets were, we let Roberto fill a box with a mix of them. As they kan be kept for a bit we saved them until we got home and treated ourselves to a little sicilian sweet every now and then with coffee. They were all delicious and the ones with lime... More

So deserving of its #1 ranking on Trip Advisor! Freshest cannoli I've ever eaten with the freshest cream filling. Roberto fills the shell while you wait! Delizioso!

Wow....what a find. Tiny little pasticceria but the BEST ever cannoli. Freshly filled whilst you wait so no soakey pastry. Great service and a few seats outside to sit and eat whilst the cannoli is at is freshest. Don't try any of the other pasticceria and coffee shop head straight for Robertos...I guarantee you wont be dissappointed.

Well, like others who rated their cannoli poor, we have to admit Roberto's was a regret given the few calories we can afford on this sort of treat. We happened by a small convenience store the evening before our sample at Robertos and had a wonderful experience sharing a half portion with my spouse. Don't make any special efforts to... More

I checked on Tripadvisor about eating in Taormina, this place did not dissapoint us, we went there every day during our 3 staying in Taormina. Just like other visitors comments, the Canoli is so delicious to die for! We bought the small nut cakes also, everything was as good as in heaven!

Lives up to his claim of King of the Cannoli. Crisp shell (because it's freshly-filled), perfect filling, but no candied fruits.

If you are in Taormina make sure you stop at Roberto's and try the cannoli. Everything is delicious and authentic and the staff and friendly and helpful. An important part of the Sicilian experience!
