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!

The "Magician of Cannoli" is tucked away in a quiet street of Taormina and a great stop for yummy desserts. It is mainly take away pastries but there are a few seats where you're welcome to stay and enjoy calorie laden cannoli (a tube of fried pastry filled with a sweet creamy filling) at approx €2 each

We decided to taste some of the pastry encouraged by the excellent reviews. We ended up buying a piece of almost everything available and can confirm the recommendation. Truly delicious. Our whole family and grandparents were happy.

Cannoli cannot be beaten and friendliest service in Taormina. Freshly made and delicious. TV show from England filming the day before our visit - watch out for show in November.

Made freshly right in front of our family, the cannoli was mouth watering and Roberto was such a friendly guy. And for only €2 each. What a great way to finish of our trip in Taormina!
