If you're in Scicli you must visit this fabulous pasticceria, it's well worth the walk out from the old part of town - even on a hot day - to step into the cool air-conditioned shop and be faced with a beautiful selection of cakes and biscuits. We were more than happy to take advice and chose a ricotta cassata... More

We walked a few minutes from the centre to find this pasticceria, it was absolutely worth.We were politely received by the gracious, elder lady, probably the owner's wife that served us with a few, very tasty biscuits and good cappuccino.I bought some pastries to take with us too!

Had this one our list from TA as a must. Took ages to find it as it is a long way out of the centre of Scicli, especially if you are on foot. My husband made the extreme sacrifice and walked there one morning. They were just as good as the other pasticcieras we tried. Not surprisingly, after all the... More

It has been a struggle to keep Rudolph away from the almond pastries.... they are my favorite and lucky for me cos they are Gluten-Free. We savoured every piece of the genuine, delicious and fresh pastries. Lucky for us that we have met your father Pippo and his vespa in Malta. He promised us a taste of his Modica and... More

This year I've been so lucky to spend one month in Malta and visit Sicily for a couple of days. I want to share my experience about visiting one of the places in Scicli - Pasticceria Basile, a family pastry cafe opened since 1966.
