The best cannoli in the world. If you see reviews that say that these cannoli are below average, they should just go get a mcflurry in McDonald's. I've been buying cannoli and ice cream here since I was a kid. I don't particularly like almond based treats but my parents would eat them Al day long and always buy a... More

By far the best desserts in Noto. Their ice cream is incredible and so their cakes, Sicilian cannoli and many other local delicacies. The true highlight of the Pasticceria J.F Kennedy is the owner Giovanna. She is a true force of nature. She showed us the laboratory where they make all the desserts... What an experience. Don't go there if... More

I fell for the reviews and trekked to the top of the town for cannoli with my family. What we found was a quaint place with very friendly service, but completely average cannoli. There was nothing special here. We spent a week in Sicily eating as much cannoli as we could get our hands on and the cannoli at Pasticceria... More

Out of the center you find this little Pasticceria on the top of the town. Really worth the visit for a great Cannolo filled with simple ricotta and no chocolate or anything else, (maybe you can request it). It was the real Sicilian Cannolo of a super quality. To return

An amazing place, a traditional family bakery with show cases/chilled cabinets of cakes all around the room and one small table with three or for seats. The shop walls are decorated with an assortment of paintings and pictures and was rarely empty each time we went past. The smaller biscuits/cakes are priced by weight, such as lovely almond biscuits that... More

This place is number one in Noto, therefore as soon as we got there had to obviously quickly get there. The guy serving us the 3 different cannoli´s chocholate, cream and ricotta was a bit rudish though I talked to him in Italian and there was not language barrier. The cannoli´s looked great, but though they were ok, they were... More

This place will give you new concepts of bakery and "ice cream sandwich." Though no one in the place speaks English, I could easily choose what to eat with the help of the bakers' kindness. They are the most kind people you can meet in Italy. Mind that there is only one table with three chairs in the place. So... More
