A must go! Best Cannoli of Lipari (and probably best of Aeolian Islands) filled with ricotta at the moment you order, simply AMAZING! They can also prepare a travel bag in case you wish to bring a sweet souvenir at home. Enjoy!

It was the perfect Italian breakfast (plus a Coke) to make me and my kids happy! The pastries were delicious. It was located around the corner from our hotel and we took it to go to eat on our balcony at Giardino Sul Mare.

Some devote their lives to painting the Sistine Chapel, and others make Cannoli. This place is very difficult to find, but I had the very good fortune of stumbling across it whilst exploring the tiny alleyways near Marina Corta. This tiny establishment serves gelati, coffee and an assortment of Sicilian sweets but the people who queue day and night are... More

Yes, this patisserie does serve the best cannoli in the world. It is set in a beautiful corner a few steps from the marina and the Piazza di Sant Onofrio. The cannoli is made while you wait and really is special. We rarely go back to the same restaurant whilst travelling, but this is one of those exceptions.

Giovanni, Bartolo and Lidia run the most delightful family run pasticceria/italian pastry sweets. Their cannoli are just divine and filled on the spot with a variety of filling choices. My favourite is the ricotta filled option but the chocolate and italian creme are also fabulous. Their Rum baba's are a bomb of flavour guaranteed to put you over the limit!... More

This shop is located in a very quiet side street which can easily be missed but and wonder who buys her goods but I was so wrong!!! Her canolli and rum baba were simply divine and went well with the... More

On a hot day where we had done some heavy duty hiking, someone suggested this wonderful spot for fresh made cannelloni. Wonderful! We had never seen it made and it was a fresh and delicious as could be!

Beautiful pastries and gelato. They make the best canoli I have ever tasted that are filled when you order. Great selection of pasteries.
