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.

We went there right after a dinner at a close by restaurant. We had granita and cannoli and it was tasty. Somewhat unfriendly staff.

A must try of Lipari, with traditional & characteristic desserts made by hand. Ps. "Tartufo" and "cannoli" are absolute best.

Many people look for tasty cannolo in this small cafe, we tried it but I didn't resonate with our review. Maybe the fact that I am not a "sweet" guy who have passion in dessert! But it deserves a try when you are on the island. Still recommended.
