The four of us were sleepily heading up to Mt. Etna in the rain and fog and decided to stop at Pasticceria Russo because it was there. It was a lovely, warm surprise. The friendly waiter talked us into honey croissants. They were beautiful, warm confections that, along with the capucinno warmed us inside and out. They also had a delightful array of marzipan and tortes that were luscious to look at.

We stopped here on our way to Taormina and Mount Etna. This is a great bakery / coffee shop.
The cannoli are fantastic (ask for them if they are not on display!!)

Very old fashioned sweets baker - and all the better for it. Great cinnamon choux buns and delicious cannoli. The marzipan carved into fruit is an art in itself. The coffee room is lovely and dignified. Authentically lovely.

Oh my goodness what a lovely place! Understandably it has world wide recognition. It is a place of class so expect great service and produce.

If you stay in Santa venerina you need to make this pasticceria your morning stop. We went every morning for freshly made brioche, croissants and bread.

The staff were incredibly friendly and they loved my two year son and always gave him sweets because he was a character, which was a lovely touch. Can't wait to go back next year!
