My husband was a gelato fan until we discovered Pasticceria d'Ambra and then he was addicted to cannoli and never gave gelato a second glance. This place is difficult to find but if you write down the name and show it to a local they will be happy to direct you to this slice of heaven. The cannoli are freshly... More

We searched this place out after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor and it was worth the search, partially because of the pastries, partially because to find this place you'll have to explore a different part of Lipari town. It'll take you away from the usual suspects on the tourist trail (that's not to say this place doesn't get most of... More

This little bakery is an absolute must seen and tasted on Lipari. The choices and flavors they have are heavenly. Luckily for us we stayed just next door so we went there every day at least once for a week to try as many different things as possible. And every little piece of patisserie was a blast.

Great brioche , fantastic cannoli , much better then Sabba . They should more advertising , it's in a small place in a small street. But I guess for Lipari it's a must. It's open until late and you can eat the brioche super fresh. Enjoy !!!!!

Enough said. One of the best cannolo in town for sure. Located on the back of Marina Corta, it is a great alternative to in-restaurant desserts or after a boat day trip for a refreshing granita or energizing cannolo

After a walk round Lipari, we decide to find the Pasticceria d'Ambra located up a narrow street near the Marina Corta, having read the reviews about it on TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed. The cannoli and Brioches con Gelato were to die for as we sat outside at a table in the shade. A good selection of gelato to suit... More

We only tried the cannoli but it was freshly prepared and absolutely gorgeous! The other options looks scrumptious too. Definitely worth a visit if you're in Lipari.

In a corner of narrow streets and near Marina Corta, the little port you will find this simple little cake shop where in the afternoons Cristina welcomes you with a smile and you then have the pleasure of choosing which cake or cannoli you want. Open all day so you don't have to lose any time. Simple, friendly and yum... More

We looked this place up after finding it on TripAdvisor and were not disappointed. It is really tucked away and not as glamorous as the main pasticceria Subba, but the cannoli was truly delicious and the owner took time out of his kitchen duties to pour us some delicious complimentary malvasia. Really lovely
