“Worth the search!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

I had heard this was ranked highly on trip advisor, now I know why! Don't be fooled when you go in if you cant immediately see the Cannoli - this is because he makes each one fresh. We also sampled his lemon strudle, which was original and delicious!

The street to get there is opposite the Bank, just follow all the way down. Not to be missed!!

“This is the place for Cannoli in Taormina!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

I had read the reviews and added this pasticceria to my list of places I wanted to try while in Taormina over the weekend. I couldn't find it until the last day when we stumbled upon it only a block from our hotel...I had failed to read the name on the building as we passed a dozen times before!! We saved room for dessert after lunch and having already confirmed that they're open all day, came back for "made for you at the moment" cannoli that were super fresh and very satisfying...crisp shell with smooth, yummy ricotta filling, just the right sweetness. The owners are lovely and proud of their delicious pastries. There are lots of almond pastries and unique cookies of different varieties. A real authentic bakery that's worth finding!

“Best Cannoli”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

This family business is off the beaten path, but well worth the searching. It’s a small little shop that has served all sorts of people over the years and treats everyone like family. Their cannolis are great and you really get a sense of the “true Italy” after a stop here.

“The place for Canoli”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

This is the place not only for a typical canoli, but also for other typical sicilian sweets. Either for a mid afternoon break or to have a dessert after eating in the restaurants nearby. The prices are good and it has some chairs outside where you can eat your sweet.

“Best cannoli in Taormina”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013 via mobile

Stumbled across this little bakery by accident, and after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor we decided to sample the cannoli - we were not disappointed! Definitely worth a visit while you're in Taormina
