I can't believe how incredibly good these cannoli were! We were just wandering the streets of Palermo and we stumbled upon the Pasticceria Cappello, on Corso Calatafmi 9. First of all, the ricotta is so rich in taste and flavour, you can actually feel the goat or buffallo aftertaste ( I am not sure what they use, but it was... More

We have tasted the famous settevelli cake (words are useless in describing it <3 ) and the "baby ice cream cones" :)) the chocolate and cappuccino flavors where out of this world.
