While visiting Scicli, we visited this pasticceria on TripAdvisor recommendation. We bought cannoli and a bag of home made cookies with buckwheat, spelt and olive oil. Everything was just so tasty.... Not to be missed!

All the sweets and granite are just amazing. Cannoli are an absolut top and so the little almonds sweets (paste di mandorle). The one with lemon are really special. I also carried away a few of those and thanks to really nice packaging everything was nice and fresh upon arrival overseas. The owner is caring and extremely kind, making every... More

My husband and I visited this lovely little Pasticceria after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor ... and it certainly didn't disappoint! Our server was so welcoming and helpful and we enjoyed some lovely treats and ice tea with delicious granita (on recommendation) on both our visits. We enjoyed our time here so much that we made sure to visit... More

If you're in Scicli you must visit this fabulous pasticceria, it's well worth the walk out from the old part of town - even on a hot day - to step into the cool air-conditioned shop and be faced with a beautiful selection of cakes and biscuits. We were more than happy to take advice and chose a ricotta cassata... More

We walked a few minutes from the centre to find this pasticceria, it was absolutely worth.We were politely received by the gracious, elder lady, probably the owner's wife that served us with a few, very tasty biscuits and good cappuccino.I bought some pastries to take with us too!

Had this one our list from TA as a must. Took ages to find it as it is a long way out of the centre of Scicli, especially if you are on foot. My husband made the extreme sacrifice and walked there one morning. They were just as good as the other pasticcieras we tried. Not surprisingly, after all the... More

Since every year we try something new at Pasticceria Basile, I always write about them on Tripadvisor when I leave. This year I have decided write my review in English, so that hopefully more people can read it. As usual, my wife and... More

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... More
