Best Cannoli in Taormina

Of all the cannoli we tried in Sicily, these were without any sort of doubt the very best! They prepared them

Amazing pastries, almond based cakes and the king of sicilian cuisine IL CANNOLO! The freshness of the ricotta is unbelievable (i'm Neapolitan, ricotta is my thing). the owner is sooo nice! Price is really good compared to Taormina's standards! Worth the visit!

Yummy, made special for you as you wait. Savor the fresh ingredients and enjoy life, the calories will not wait but walk the many stairs of Taormina you they don't count. Would only be better if he also made cafe!

We read about this place on trip advisor and just happened to walk past it wandering around the streets of Taormina. Roberto was just closing up for a siesta but gave us a free sample of his legendary Canolli WOW! Unlike any other I have ever had. He told us he would be back at 3pm, so we had a... More

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.
