My wife and I purchased ONE pastry because of the rave reviews. Luckily ours eyes didn't deceive us to buy more. I took one bite. Good thing I had drink or I would have choked on the driest desert I ever attempted to eat.

Absolutely delicious. We had a cannolo on the go and bought a box of almond paste sweets, to share with our friends back home - if we manage to not eat them all!

This little shop offers a treasure trove of wonderful delights but non so more than the fresh filled cannolli! I was lucky enough to pop into this shop quite late one night & enjoyed every morsel that past my lips, the little pistachio mafiosa biscuits were to die for, a slightly crisp exterior with a soft light green interior full...

Most of Taormina is expensive restaurants with no that state-of-the-art food, but Roberto absolutely stands behind it's name and place in Taormina's top restaurants list !!!! We enjoyed it so much we just couldn't stop eating the Cannollo, which the best we've tasted!

Please go visit, the delicacy are amazing. I bought a kilo of biscuits to take back with me. The recipes are from the Messina province and are completely different to the other regions of Sicily. I know this as I'm from Central Sicily and we different types of biscuits from my region. If you want a cannoli, BUY from here.... More

We thought we'd found the best cannoli until we went to Roberto's! Simply delicious custard and as it was near closing Roberto even invited us into his modest kitchen to prepare our own cannoli (we ordered more for takeaway it was SO good). It's a small bakery but jam packed with lots of amazing options - we only wish we'd... More

Delicious cannoli filled to order! Messy to eat but totally worth it. We also bought a box of assorted pastries and were given a little taster to help us decide which sorts we wanted. Lovely little shop with a nice family-run feel.

I can't say that I understand the rave reviews about this place. My friends and I tried three different pastries, and they were all good, but not great. The owner told us that he had the best cannolis in the world, but I think that's a huge stretch. I've had better in the U.S. and I prefer Pasticceria D'Amore in... More
