“Great owners, terrific cannoli”

La Pignolata Guinness Cannoli

Reviewed October 2, 2016

You can try cannoli almost everywhere over here and the choice is really big, but if you want to try original ones (the ones locals eat) and the tastiest, then you must come here. The other unique thing you'll never find around is "nutella" paste made of pure pistacchio.

We were surprised to find out that the girl hosting this place is ukrainian. Big ups to Ukraine!

Such a friendly welcoming and so tasty canolli. Definitely a place to pop by! I really liked that the shop owner was so chatty and friendly. Pistachio nutella was a lush! So tasty. I love Sicily and Sicilian people.

Walked into this place after seeing all the reviews, i dont really like Cannoli that much, but when in Sicily.
So the owner started telling me about his products and let me try a few things before i ordered the large Cannoli with pistachio( I dont normally like the taste but it tasted like nuttellla).
Go there, this is a MUST.

I had never tried cannoli before, but as La Pignolata had such great reviews, and was on our walk home in the evening, we experienced our first ever cannoli.
The choice is vast, and they also have small as well as normal sizes. The first night we chose one of each small cannoli, varying between 1 and 1.40 euro. They were all delicious, especially the pistachio special.
Every night after that we called in, for our nightly treat. Much cheaper than a sweet in any restaurant and 10 times nicer.
A must if in Taormina.
