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

Was here yesterday and because it's the end of the season the town's pretty much as it should be: sleepy... 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.

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

The pasticceria is tucked away in a little alley right off piazza Marina Corta. It is very small and has outside seating. We found the young lady serving to be very unfriendly and curt with customers. She gave us the impression she did not want to be there and that customers are a big nuisance to her. The pastries, however,... More
