Excellent Cannoli and the best Cassata

The pasticceria is tucked away in a little alley right off piazza Marina Corta. It is very small and has outside seating. We found the young lady serving to be very unfriendly and curt with customers. She gave us the impression she did not want to be there and that customers are a big nuisance... read more

A must try of Lipari, with traditional & characteristic desserts made by hand. Ps. "Tartufo" and "cannoli" are absolute best.

Many people look for tasty cannolo in this small cafe, we tried it but I didn't resonate with our review. Maybe the fact that I am not a "sweet" guy who have passion in dessert! But it deserves a try when you are on the island. Still recommended.

It was only after someone else came in the shop she came forward and her total conversation was... More

Located in a hidden corner this place definitely has the best Canolo of Sicily. We also had a selection of pastries and they were all delicious. Well worth searching out.

The cannolo I had at Pasticceria d'Ambra was one of the best pastries I have ever had! The lovely lady serving me explained how cannoli are made and even showed me the ingredients! And my Italian is very rudimentary. Don't miss this treat in Lipari!
