If you want to sample the finest Sicilian pastries and cakes in Italy this is the spot to sit down and enjoy. Made on the premises by the master-craftsmen Iacono family, there are so many colourful delicacies that must be tried, from the finest elaborate cannoli using local ricotta to the ancient Arab dainties that contain meat and sugar, from...

Very busy cafe on the main street in Modica. The seating is outside and it's nice if you can get a seat out of direct sunlight. The pastries and coffee we had on our visits were very good and so was a gelato I had walking up the road. Probably the best cannoli we had in Modica.

We originally came here for a digestivo after dinner one evening in the Centro of Modica, around 10pm. We stood at the bar as we drank an amaro, and started to marvel at the different granita, cremolata, gelato, and cannoli, cakes, chocolates, and pastry plates of dolci that were being prepared right in front of us (for customers sitting at...

If you want delicious, authentic Sicilian coffee, gelato, cannoli, and experience this is it!! This adorable little café serves up some of the best breakfast and sweets in all of Italy- so good it has earned itself a Gambero Rosso award (Italian equivalent of a Michelin star). Located in beautiful central Modica, this is a great place to start or... More

Ice cream was average, as was coffee. The ice cream dishes were frozen solid...which isn't to my preference but maybe the way Sicilians do it!?

The pistachio gelato was incredible as was the fragola granita, espresso and cannoli. Friendly service. Lots of varieties of Modica chocolate to purchase.

A great atmosphere and friendly staff are just two of the assets of this cafe. The hot chocolate served here is just out of this world. The pastries were great as well and the cannoli is highly recommended. Don't miss this place.

Lovely bar, we popped in here for an aperitif, went for dinner and found ourselves coming back for a nightcap! Very arty clientele. They do snacks with drinks early evening. Sit outside on the street and watch the world go by.

Wonderful chocolate and very friendly staff. This is a family-run business and it's a wonderful place to sit and enjoy the wonderful chocolate, pastries and gelato. Highly recommended.
