We had such a great experience at La Pignolata! We tried the Sicilian cannolo, a special cannolo, and a cream & chocolate cannolo. All were amazing, but the best part of our visit to La Pignolata was how kind the shop owners were. They gave...More

First taste of cannoli. Fresh and tasty. Definitely recommend. Small family business. Very hospitable. My friend tried cannoli at a number of places in Taormina and he said this was the best by far. Hidden little gem.
