The best cannolo

If you're looking for a tasteful traditional Sicilian cannolo, then you need to stop and try one in here. For 2 euros you can delight a delicious cannolo filled with ricotta cream, sprinkled with almonds. My sister and I were advised to come here by a young man met at the train station in Taormina... read more

Too much to chose...so we went back again and again. Great selection of pastries and canoli. Take away a bite to eat for a euro or load up on a kilo to take home with you!

I do not have much of a sweet tooth, so we went in and my wife ordered a cannoli. Roberto asked me what I wanted and I said I didn't know. He insisted I try the Cassata cake. Now, I have had Cassata cakes at convention type lunches in hotels, and typically find them disgusting, but Roberto made a great... More

The staff is delightful. The food is fabulous. The store is open all day. There are a few seats on the outside of the store if you want to sit. We got our baked goods there everyday of a 14 day vacation.

went back last week, and it was as fantastic as ever. I visit Sicily every summer for a month, and eat cannoli all over eastern Sicily. These are THE BEST.

Having high standards in cannoli & coming from a foodie background, I seriously suggest you try these. Lab Roberto is off the main drag, down a little via and also offers gorgeous almond based biscuits but the best are the freshly filled ricotta cannoli.. and Roberto, well he's 'molto simpatico'..love this place

Following tripadvisor recommendations, we reach this place while touring in Sicily. We bought 10 boxes of marzipan fruits, to bring back to family and friends. From reviews, I thought they would be the best I can find, so I even did not think of tasting before buying. Back home, I offered the boxes to friends and family and keep one... More

Best cannoli in Sicily, hands down. And to make it even better, Roberto was one of the most friendliest people in the world and had so much passion for what he makes. Made it even more enjoyable!

Really friendly staff and, most importantly, incredibly delicious cannolis! I would highly recommend Laboratorio Pasticceria Roberto!
