There are a few pastry shops in SVLC but they ALL pale tremendously to Capriccio. Simply the best in town if not in the entire province of Trapani and perhaps beyond! Everything is freshly baked and delicious. From the morning "cornetti" aka croissants generously filled with apricot jam or nutella or just plain..scrumptious! Other breakfast goodies are also available. Typical... More

Nutella filled croissants, connolos that are PERFECT AMAZING ADDICTIVE and a counter full of 15/10 options (as in higher than 10/10), this place has adopted a number system to serve their clientele because it is so popular. I would say it's a hidden gem, but it's incredibly reputable and popular and for good reason. I don't have words to describe... More

We found this small family run pasticerie in the heart of San Vito lo Capo, spotlessly clean, quick pleasant service with a ticket system, so no pausing in! A fantastic selection of traditional Sicilian cakes and buscuits and reasonable prices. Went here most mornings 7.30 ish so the family could have breakfast.

Amazing place for the best sweets in town. Staff very nice too, helpful and polite. All the sweets we tasted were delicious and very cheap too. A must try if you are in San Vito, since we discovered it we go everyday cause we can't resist.

We got cannolo, it was fresh, tasty and enormous! I was explained by a local that they wiped the ricotta until it becomes so light! (so no cream added) Instead of having it prepared and in displayed, they went to prepare it in the back, I assume this way the pastry does not get wet and keeps all its "crunchiness":-))))... More
