“Lovely Place”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

My partner and I did not spend much time in this Pasticceria but we had enough time to buy a couple of cannoli and other yummy stuff.

The setting looks beautiful and the staff is very helpful. But their strong point is definitely the sweets. I recommend that if you are ever in Erice, you go to this place and indulge yourselves.

“best cannoli i ever had”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

maria herself is very nice lady. I didn't even know I was served by her until "after the fact", when I saw her picture at the page of the local newspaper.
there are so many sweet treats its so hard to choose from. I am not biggest fan of cannoli but if there is a place on Earth one should have them - it is here!
There is a nice and pleasant outdoor seating area- but if you lucky to find it available grab the isolated table that is located on the little terrace opposite the entrance - you will have the most memorable view and privacy.

“Simply gorgeous pastries...”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

"One million flies cannot be wrong" - in the case of Maria Grammatico the statement actually is true. The pastries are simply gorgeous (Everything I tasted there was of superb taste with the Ricotta-filled Genovesi being my personal favorites) and way above the competition in Erice (During my stay in Erice I tried all the usual suspects...)

Had the cannolo here and it absolutely wonderful. Surely worth a visit if you want heavenly pastries when you are in Erice.

“A sweet experience!”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

You ve arrived in Erice by means of a super efficient Funivia, a spectacular experience, you walk uphill on the main road...250m up you ll find Grammatico Maria serving delicious espressos and cappuccino and exquisite freshly baked almond pastries and trapanese specialities. Try the Genovese, a warm paper thin pastry filled with crema pasticciera. To die for! The calories are worth it...if you re visiting Erice do not miss the experience!
