“Yep I went back”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014 via mobile

We visited Giardini in August 2014, and yes we went back to this little gem of sweetness. A superb place for arancini, granita and brioche, sweet cakes and ice cream! This place is a great little find.

“Best Desserts in the area!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2013

I love this place, everything is wonderful and if I need something last minute to bring to a party this is my go-to place every time. After my sister's first visit in Sicily something from this shop is always number one on her Christmas list, the chocolate with hot peppers are her favorite. My favorites are Baba Rhum and Cassata cake but it is all good. If you are here when they have the Christmas cakes, you have to get their Panattone! I brought this cake for a Christmas party at a Sicilian friend's house, the next year when I offered to bring something and every year since this cake was what they wanted. Real authentic Sicilian pastry, reasonable prices (not like Taormina's tourist traps) and a professional but friendly family that owns it.

This is highly recommended by a 12 year local resident, me!

“Perfect sweets spot, but not a bar!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2013

Brillian sweets and icecreams.
It only serves coffe from the vending machine, though.
The personnel has heard the question so many times that they're now a bit rough in telling you that no, they're not a bar and don't brew coffe, if you like, there a coffee machine.

Beside that, really a brilliant place for sweets and cakes in GIardini!
