I wouldn't say the best restaurant in the city, but definitely the best cannoli in the world. Nice staff, great location, you just can't miss it!!!

The cannoli are delicious! I tried cannoli at different pasticcerias in Taormina but Roberto really offers the best ones. The cestini are great as well. So fluffy, you can't get enough of them! The whole atmosphere of the store is unique and Roberto has a smile for everyone! Definitly worth numerous visits!

This place is interesting if you want to try ancient recipes from hundreds of years ago, sugary and primitive, almost inedible, but i guess it's still interesting to try them at least. They haven't evolved much I'm afraid. Staff was moody too.. The best traditional sicilian sweets i tried were at Maria Grammatico in Erice.

We stumbled across Roberto's by accident. We stopped in because it looked appealing - handmade marzipan in the shop window, and empty cannoli shells just waiting to be filled with fresh ricotta goodness. This place is amazing! I'm not surprised it ranks as the #1 restaurant in Taormina. It truly is that good! We went back multiple times during our... More

In our quest for the best cannoli, we went here to taste their cannoli, we heard a lot about this place, so our expertations were high, but we were disappointed, cannoli here were expensive and ordinary. You can buy any anywhere and safe money. I can't recommand their cannoli!

This Is not a restaurant, IT Is a really small and artesanal patisserie. Canoli are fried puff pastry stuffed with cold fresh sugared ricotta and pistacio. You have to have one and you won't share

Had to come to Roberto's to try his famous Cannoli, and definitely wasn't disappointed! Fabulous, everyone should come here to try one.

If you wondering if the reviews are right - they are... Best cannoli I had tried in Sicily, and not only. One of the best desserts you could get. Even if you are walking around Taormina feeling tired, do stop by.

We stayed in Taormina for 5 nights and every night, no matter how full from dinner I was, we stopped at Roberto's for a cannoli. It was absolute heaven - crispy shell, smooth ricotta with crunchy pistachios on one end and made fresh in front of you. It's number one for a reason, I can't recommend it enough.
