It has been a struggle to keep Rudolph away from the almond pastries.... they are my favorite and lucky for me cos they are Gluten-Free. We savoured every piece of the genuine, delicious and fresh pastries. Lucky for us that we have met your father Pippo and his vespa in Malta. He promised us a taste of his Modica and fulfilled it with flying colours, Through his daughter MariGrazia (Mary) who by the way is very welcoming with an immediate smile on her face, we have been introduced to such delight of Dolci tradizionali di Sicilia. We made a promise to ourselves that every time we visit Sicily and our great friends all around Sicily especially the Guzzisti of Modica, Palermo, Acireale and Enna, our definite stop will have to be at Basile Pasticceria. PIPPO, TI AMO. RUDOLPH,,,hehehe Spero di rivediamo presto! Ciao Rita & Rudolph

“A "MUST" if you go to sicily!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2012

Is a traditonal sicilian family pastry with warmly welcoming atmosphere and staff. Let you suprise by the delicous pastry wich is a part of the history of this rich country. From fruity to creamy there is something every taste, including the famous "testa di turco" (turkish head) wich is the specialty of the pastry chef Davide Basile. He took over the Pastry from his father.
If you need any information ask for Mariagrazia, wich is well english speaking. She can explain you how her father build up this little family buisness with his hands and his heart.

“I was so lucky! :-)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2012

This year I've been so lucky to spend one month in Malta and visit Sicily for a couple of days. I want to share my experience about visiting one of the places in Scicli - Pasticceria Basile, a family pastry cafe opened since 1966. It is a very tiny but cozy and sweet place, where you can get a breakfast or a cup of coffee with a fantastic choice of home-made pastries, cookies, chocolates or marzipans. Friendly and relaxing atmosphere of Sicily you can easily feel here at the Pasticceria Basile. You definitely feel like at home and a member of this nice family which give you all their attention and desire you make you happy and satisfied. I really enjoyed my visit to Pasticceria Basile - trying very special Italian desserts and great coffee as well as unforgettable aura of hospitality and care! Thank you for being so perfect! :-) Tatyana Zykova, St. Petersburg, Russia tatyana_zykova@mail.ru
