First time ever I gave a try to this very special chocolate: no added butter nor milk, not very sweet, grainy-textured. Taste the cardamom or nutmeg, that's heaven

A good place to visit while you are in Modica. I wouldn't drive there specially but if you visit Modica it's a good place to stop, taste this wonderful chocolate and to buy some staff home. Also the Canoli they produce is great.

Our Tour manager, Damian Croft, arranged for us to visit L'Antica Dolceria Bonajuto chocolate shop where their famous Modica chocolate is produced. Kitted out... More

I bought a few bars and a tin of the pepperoncino at Eurochocolate 2013 on a whim, trying to give Sicilian chocolate a try. What a disappointment! The consistency is very grainy and dry. It was likened to sun-dried bricks to make an adobe or some pyramids. Not well conched, not well-composed. I would suggest sticking with Tuscan or Parisian... More

Worth a visit but not shore why classed under restaurants. Should rather be under places to visit/shopping. In all event, great selection of local chocolate in the oldest producer in Modica.

It is just a shop! A very cute little chocolate shop, with great atmosphere and a wonderful aroma. If you go there expecting this you will leave happy (with... More

We were treated to a full sampling of chocolates, cookies and cannolis at this wonderful shop. Not only was the chocolate the best we ever had, but the cannoli was the best we ate in Sicily. Worth a detour to visit this shop.

This small dolceria that makes authentic modica style chocolate is an absolute 'must visit' if you are in the region. We have been eating canoli around Sicily since we arrived and L'Antica's canoli was out of this world. We tried chocolate, pistachio and the classic ricotta filing (yes, 3 different types and all amazing). They fill the canoli fresh with... More
