11 years ago we discovered a little pasticceria around the corner who made each cannoli fresh upon ordering. We were quite pleased that Roberto is still in the same location making the same great pastries. It is worth mentioning that while these are the best cannoli in the world, all of his pastries are delectable.

Travelling in Taormina is delightful, and as such it deserves a very good cannoli to sweet things up a it. This lovely and small pasticceria promise a good cannoli, and it is a very good cannoli. I have not had enough of those to judge if its the best in Sicily, but for me it was truly delicious.

Very good cannoli.The rolls and filling are there and put together when you order, so the cannoli are really fresh. I didn't try any of the other pastries as they are not what I like.

I ordered 5 conolo and none of us were happy with the quality.... More

After our double helping of cannoli from cannoli del re in Ortigia Syracuse unfortunately Roberto didn't come up to scratch - ricotta far too sweet cones could have been fresher....

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; he told us that the... More
