Outstanding cannoli! An absolute must eat when in Sicily. Here they are filled to order unlike everywhere else.

Amazing cannolis, and gorgeous "mafiosi al pistacchio" (try those out!). They also pass the airport checks so you can pack some in your hand luggage and bring them back home. We brought some to Ireland. Roberto and the staff are very friendly and hard working: a brilliant example of Italy that works and achieves stellar results. Congratulations to Rob &... More

There were a couple of locals in there when we arrived but Roberto was pleasant when he served us. The filling was lovely and cool and he made us feel most welcome by inviting us to sit down outside at his table and chairs to eat them.

Introduced to cannoli by Roberto. The best in Taormina! Roberto is a lovely friendly man that made all of our family feel welcome.

We discovered this place on the first night but resisted temptation! The smell outside is so good and on our final night we tried the cannoli as they are traditional in Sicily. They did not disappoint....if you're looking for this dessert in Taormina get it here, it's on sale in lots of places but I suspect these are the best.... More

So delicious and authentic! Very busy but Roberto looks after every customer with care and a smile! We took our cannoli and Roberto told us to go outside and to sit and relax before paying. Very filling, we skipped dessert so we could fully enjoy what we ate! Open until midnight.

I go to Sicily every year and I can say that this is one of the best place you can have all sorts of Sicilian sweet! Cannolo, pasta di mandorle and more! The staff is also very kind and funny

Ultra- friendly customer service. You can tell the food is made with real pride and passion. Turn left out of the Greco teatro into the immediate side street and keep walking to find Roberto's although everyone knows where it is. Nothing is too much trouble for Roberto. The canoli is the best we experienced in Italy.
