This is the kind of historical, family-run foodie shop that most travelers cross an ocean for. Its room, its interesting locale (down a vine-covered alley) and its rare products are all unique. It closes for an afternoon slot, so visitors need to plan accordingly. One large school group on a field trip found this out the hard way. Locals shop here too, of course. We witnessed an elderly customer describe in precise detail how he wanted staff to prepare his cannoli, 'A little more of this and a little less of that, please.' It is interesting to note that the majority of those who've rated Bonajuto lowest here on Trip Advisor seem to be locals. That's understandable in the context of a culture with a proud, centuries-old tradition of treating food as an art form. Bonajuto offers an excellent opportuntiy for one to purchase a wide variety of souvenir gifts for home. Modica has several other similar shops, which we will also comment on soon.
