It's a small shop just off Corso D'Umberto, selling and serving biscotti, cannoli and coffee. They offer free samples, and once you taste, you are hooked. The biscotti are in 4 different flavours and are sublime. They melt in your mouth. We then tried the cannoli. They pipe the shell freshly, and the taste was superb, better than any cannoli we'd ever eaten. The owners are lovely friendly people as well. This place is an absolute treat. A real jewel tucked away in Taormina.

On our travels so far for this journey, my girlfriend and I both agreed the people that run this place were the only ones who truly understand hospitality. They treated us like we were the gold, having a chat to us and explaining shop which made us feel really special. Now onto the cannoli. Wow. Just amazing. The different flavours all so tasty and sweet. The pistachio special tastes similar to a Nutella but is cacao so was amazing, definitely recommend.

We actually discovered the shop through instagram... super friendly shop owner that welcomes you with open arms. Cannoli's were yummy and we tried the pistachio pesto and pistachio nutella. We bought some Nutella to take home because it is divine!

We had 3 of the little lemon cookies and a couple of cannoli (vanilla & a pistachio) ... WOW.
Utterly amazing.
My husband doesn't normally like pistachio but now he want MORE of it as a result of trying the pistachio products at La Pignolata! We are going back tomorrow. The staff were absolutely lovely as well and let us try a few of the products without us feeling like we were having any pressure to buy. A very enjoyable experience... I hope they do mail order!

Located just outside the town gate near the supermarket. The special is amazing, though they are all good. The pistachio Nutella is fantastic. The staff are extremely friendly.
