So lucky to have found this gem during the first night at Taormina! Most delicious Cannoli we had during our trip to Italy!

The Special Cannoli was the best of the three flavours we got and features a ricotta filling on one side and a pistachio filling on the other. Both of the flavours complement each other since you have the Pistachio's roasted taste on one hand and then the light, fluffy ricotta on the other.

We also had to purchase the Pistachio cream which is nothing like anything you can find in the stores and amazing too!

It's a little bit off the beaten track but only just street away from the the main road of shops.

This place is a hidden gem! We wandered around to find this place because of reviews we had seen and were not at all dissapointed! We couldn't decide on a flavour so we got 1 of each flavour of the larger size... wowee are they big! They are generous with the filling and the custard and pistachio fillings were our favourite! (Even though we liked them all) You also need to atleast try the pistachio spread they have which is similar to nutella but better!

They offer samples of their products for a reason. Their pistachio cream is truly exceptional and something homemade, delicious, and unique to bring home. I know it's heavy, but so worth it!!

Can't wait to put it on ice cream. All ofthe house made products we tasted are great... But I dream of the Pistachio cream!!

In May I was in beautiful Taormina and tried the best cannoli in town. Now I know why they say they're the best here. The owner was very friendly and helpful. If I ever visit Taormina again, I will definitely stop here.
