Local clients are a guarantee for quality.. We met only locals with 4 tourists ( our family..). Superb ice cream, friendly service, aqua con or sin gas as you want; Cakes with chocolate.. Alice in Wonderland... a fresh and very clean stop in the middle of a dusty surrounding.

The cappuccino bar was really active, but we were there for gelato and sweets. The caramel gelato was fantastic and the sweets were absolutely incredible. The little sweets that were beautifully prepared and the prettiest ones were just sort of sugar candy. The others with chocolate and other spices were amazing. I got two thumbs up from everyone in our... More

Some locals advice me to visit this place. I went there just to try cannoli. The cannoli was good, but not great as in the other pasticcerias. Also, the service is not that great. The lady who serves at the pasticceria was tired from the tourists and you feel it when you asked some questions about the deserts. It is... More

Found Capello at just the right moment. Tired, hungry and just before a lunchtime downpour.The staff were incredibly helpful given my terrible Italian. Delicious coffee, succulent sandwiches. Beautiful wild berry tart and brioche gelato. Small but very much worth dropping into.

I was told that the pastry was an institution in Palermo so I paid them a visit. The visual presentation of the desserts was amazing and I went for a piece of 'sette veli' (7 veils), which was their creation, both chocolate and pistacchio versions, an almond paste fig and a mini cassata Siciliana. All of them were fresh, exquisite... More

We were 4 and wanted to sit at a table, so it took some time to get served. But u can also order and eat it at the counter (less space, faster way). Cannoli sicilieni were very good, the coffee heavenly, the sfinge is a good alternative to canoli (if u do mot like the hard cornetto of the cannoli).... More
