First taste of cannoli. Fresh and tasty. Definitely recommend. Small family business. Very hospitable. My friend tried cannoli at a number of places in Taormina and he said this was the best by far. Hidden little gem.

We happened upon this place after leaving a restaurant - SO glad we did! Best cannoli I have ever had - but the best part was how accommodating the people were there, giving us free samples, water, etc., and explaining each cannoli. Very nice people,...More

We have traveled all over Sicily over 2 weeks & this place had the best cannoli we have ever tasted. Visited every night in Taormina sometimes twice a day. If you are on a quest for the best cannoli just go here. Thanks
