This is very cute place where you can eat the best cannoli in the region. They have different variants of cannoli: filled with cream, panacotta, pistachio, chocolate... And they also have different sizes, from very small called cannulicchi to normal size. Here you will also find great granita and brioche. They can pack very carefully everything you bought so you...

Good and tasty icecreams. Friendly service. Coffee Granita con panna (whipped cream) was well done. Well located in the northern area by the Giardini Naxos beach road. I recommend to stop there and have some sweets.

The arancini at La Dolceria are some of the best I have ever tasted. They made them fresh for us so they were still piping hot when they came to our table. Very tasty and satisfying. The selection of biscuits and the granita is also impressive. Most of all this place is incredibly cheap for the high standard of products... More

We came across this pastry shop late one day when we stopped on our way back from visiting Taormina. Very sweet staff and the cannoli were excellent. Unfortunately when we came back a 2nd time, there were no cannoli, so we were forced to eat something else. Stocked up on pasta di mandorla as gifts to bring back.

We tried really nice granite (pistacchio and mandorla were super!), and then a cannolo which was not that great. Prices are really good (granita €1, 80).

Nice little gelateria with a lot of delicious and typical sicilian sweets. The other thing that was good for us is that there were also vegan ice creams (pistachio, vanilla, chocolate and nocciola) , biscuits and granita. Location is also good because it is on the main street!:)

We just happened to pass here strolling along the boulevard looking for a place to try the famed Canoli. Seeing the Tripadvisor certificate made us go in and what we found were the best canoli I have ever had, and the absolutely ultimate ice cream. Make sure to try the pistacchio ice cream, home made using the famous Sicilian pistacchios... More
