Lovely canoli

Very fresh, filled as you wait, delicious canoli. A little hard to find (between the gardens and Corso Umberto). Well worth a mid morning or mid afternoon pop in. We did both on consecutive days and were licking our lips like cats for the next hour or so at the memory!

Definitely one of the best delicacies ever, lots of Sicilian pastries to choose from, all of which are very good. Situated very close to the Gardens, a sign outside this confectionery says that Roberto is its magician. Truly, a stop to see Roberto is a must!

A must try when in Taormina. Fresh as a daisy canolli. Can't wait for my next one.....today. Think I'll try a few different things while I'm there :-)

It was worth the find. We watched our cannoli being assembled with fluffy ricotta cheese and dipped in crushed almond toffee and ate them as we wandered along the alley way. Delicious and filling at 2 Euros per cannoli.

Roberto's Sicilian cannoli is delicious made fresh to order with a friendly smile and a joke or 2. All the other sweet treats we bought to take away were also outstanding. We sat outside and savoured our cannoli and took photo's of our experience. Roberto's is hard to find but worth the trouble once you get there.

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
