We were directed here by another bar's owner! Quite incredible as such! The genovesi were really yummy and fresh and the location and the old lady were pittoresque!

Pasticceria is a little run down. During my visit, there were very few sweet varieties on display. The elderly attendant took our order and went to an adjacent room where we could see her finishing off the Genovesi with a dusting of icing sugar. Pastries were very fresh and tasty.

Marzipan is incredible, fresh great taste, I remember my wife say I don't like marzipan, and after the first bite she loves it, the marzipan are all great but the chocolate with rum is the best.

The pistachio cookies are pure bliss, and all the other varieties of cookies are worth more than a nibble. This is a place that prides itself on classic Sicilian cookies yet uses restraint with almond extract which permeates lesser bakers. They sell by weight, and it is easy to fill a bag.

The shop is almost always full of people waiting to buy the sweets sold by these two old ladies. Their sweets are excellent and far better than other I tasted from other Pasticceria down the road. They are also cheaper, but you need to have some patience to wait a bit in the queue since many people go there. I would highly recommend for the experience of tasting some very good Sicilian sweets, especially the Guelfi which are typical of Erice. Yummy also to take with you back home and share with family and friends.
