Nice shop with friendly and helpful staff. Not necessarily the cheapest, but a range of good quality products. Carefully wrapped items in their signature paper, makes it ideal for buying foodie gifts from Sicily for family and friends at reasonable prices.

We remembered this shop from 5 years ago, and it was probably even better now. A wide range of primary ingredients, chocolate, almond products and other Sicilian foods. Helpful & knowledgeable staff. Not cheap but definitely good.
