This place, located in the old upper part of Noto, is simply a must to go if you are looking for truly true Sicilian cannoli: current owner continues the tradition of his mother with passion and quality. Try the ‘cannoli alla ricotta’ and you will...ask for more. In addition there is a collection of a local artist paintings that are worth a visit, regardless the cannoli.More

Had read about canoli in Noto. Stumbled across Kennedy Patisserie which is away from the tourist area. Ordered a ricotta and a chocolate flavoured canoli. The pastry was perfectly crisp and the ricotta filling the best I have had. Unless you love chocolate I would...not bother as i found this too sweet.More

The best cannoli in the world. If you see reviews that say that these cannoli are below average, they should just go get a mcflurry in McDonald's. I've been buying cannoli and ice cream here since I was a kid. I don't particularly like almond...based treats but my parents would eat them Al day long and always buy a whole load of them before going back to Milan. Everything is freshly made. You won't see cannoli for show when you go in because they make them for you on the spot. The ricotta filled ones are the best. The elderly lady owner looks a bit grumpy but she is awesome. It's worth walking uphill for 20 mind if you coming from the village.More

By far the best desserts in Noto. Their ice cream is incredible and so their cakes, Sicilian cannoli and many other local delicacies. The true highlight of the Pasticceria J.F Kennedy is the owner Giovanna. She is a true force of nature. She showed us...the laboratory where they make all the desserts... What an experience. Don't go there if you are counting weight watchers points!More

I fell for the reviews and trekked to the top of the town for cannoli with my family. What we found was a quaint place with very friendly service, but completely average cannoli. There was nothing special here. We spent a week in Sicily eating...as much cannoli as we could get our hands on and the cannoli at Pasticceria Kennedy was nothing special.More

We had our breakfast these days filled with Kennedy’s treats…and there is no regrets! :) It's just unmissable!More

Out of the center you find this little Pasticceria on the top of the town. Really worth the visit for a great Cannolo filled with simple ricotta and no chocolate or anything else, (maybe you can request it). It was the real Sicilian Cannolo of...a super quality. To returnMore

An amazing place, a traditional family bakery with show cases/chilled cabinets of cakes all around the room and one small table with three or for seats. The shop walls are decorated with an assortment of paintings and pictures and was rarely empty each time we...went past. The smaller biscuits/cakes are priced by weight, such as lovely almond biscuits that melt in the mouth. There are also smooth semi-freddos as well as flavoursome ice-creams. Some cakes you have to ask for e.g cannoli and cassata these are kept in the bakery to the side. The softer cakes/semi freddo are delightfully packed on small cardboard trays and expertly wrapped in brown Pasticcerie paper. The staff serving are very patient and we were able to choose selections of treats even with our limited italian! We rented a house on Principe Umberto for our stay in Noto and saw for ourselves how popular this little bakery and shop is; mornings and evenings (until 11pm) characterised by crazy 'pasticceria parking! You don't have to wait long though to get a parking spot, though if all else fails just park on the pavement. Smart cars fit especially well!More
