This is mainly a pastry shop, but it stands out for being warm and authentic in a very touristy environment. We has some local pastries and a coffee during an organized four hours in Erice. Everything was very fresh. BTW, they have nice restrooms on the upper floor - not obvious while you're buying or eating. We sat on a... More

We had 4 different cakes and all of them were delicious! Very good service! A very traditional and a bit oldfashioned place. I will absolutely come back there on future visits to Erice!

We came here as a group of 13 including 2 locals for lunch. It was a total scam. We ordered a plate of pasta each from the counter which was already cooked and was reheated in the microwave, bought a soft drink each and ordered a couple of plates of fish which was also already pre-cooked and then reheated in...

As part of our tour of Erice we made a coffee break stop here. They have a wide arrange of almond pastry as well as the traditional cassadelle and Sicilian cannoli. If you are lucky they have a little sample of the almond pastries before you purchase.

We bought a pizza (terrible) and an aranchino (totally bland). We left them both, couldn't eat them. Our friends got some cake. They also couldn't finish it. They said their coffee was mediocre too (if this is ever possible in Italy!). It's a great pity that a pastry shop on the high street of such a picturesque Italian village serves... More

This pasticceria also does a super self-service lunch where we had potato frittata, caponata, grilled vegetables, bread, water and coffee for two all for E20 and considering we were sitting outside, under a sunshade, watching the world go by along one of the most charming cobbled streets in Erice, it was excellent value.

I agree with with Mark from Poole. It is a little expensive, is on the high street, is looking for tourist custom, and - that's all just fine. The pastries are excellent. The people are friendly! Atmosphere is pleasant and well suited to the surroundings. We did not eat here, so can't speak about anything but the pastries, service, and... More

Of course this Is expensive - it is a pastry cafe on. The high street of Erice - but very friendly and excellent quality - three coffees, three pastries and three large arranchino for €20 - not so bad and better than many places to go. After all, we were on a sacred mountain !

Well, this lot obviously spotted us coming from a mile away! Following an decent, freshly-filled Canoli, a frankly bad chocolate Genovese and two Cappuccinos, a lady with a face like she was sucking a lemon appeared to ..well... pull several prices out of thin air then charge us 2.50 euros for each of the above. Now, forgive me if that... More
