The best sicilian breakfast I had was in this Pasticceria in Giardini Naxos. The typical granita with briosce is delicious or you can choose cornetti or esse e typical sweet bread covered with chocolate. Dont Miss it!

We stopped here for a day on our Mediterranean cruise. We had heard pastries in Sicily were the best so we started down the beach road to find a bakery. There was nothing with fresh baked goods, but finally someone pointed us to this amazing gem that sits on and opens onto the beach road and the block behind it.... More

Yet again this place has out done itself. The friendly service, great selection of food, freshly made. I can say they also make the best Arancini in the area. No question. I will always visit here if I am in town. Lovely people, great food, super place. Many thanks.

This is very cute place where you can eat the best cannoli in the region. They have different variants of cannoli: filled with cream, panacotta, pistachio, chocolate... And they also have different sizes, from very small called cannulicchi to normal size. Here you will also find great granita and brioche. They can pack very carefully everything you bought so you...

Good and tasty icecreams. Friendly service. Coffee Granita con panna (whipped cream) was well done. Well located in the northern area by the Giardini Naxos beach road. I recommend to stop there and have some sweets.

The arancini at La Dolceria are some of the best I have ever tasted. They made them fresh for us so they were still piping hot when they came to our table. Very tasty and satisfying. The selection of biscuits and the granita is also impressive. Most of all this place is incredibly cheap for the high standard of products... More

We came across this pastry shop late one day when we stopped on our way back from visiting Taormina. Very sweet staff and the cannoli were excellent. Unfortunately when we came back a 2nd time, there were no cannoli, so we were forced to eat something else. Stocked up on pasta di mandorla as gifts to bring back.

We tried really nice granite (pistacchio and mandorla were super!), and then a cannolo which was not that great. Prices are really good (granita €1, 80).
