We came back time and again. Handy also for the nearby catacombs, Greek theatre...

Everything we had was delicious, pistachio croissants, rice balls, mini pizza, numerous cakes...

Do yourself a favour and make this your first stop in Catania. The food is delicious, in fact some of the best we’ve had around the world, but it is the wonderful Ficarra family that makes this an amazing experience. Their warm welcome, their laughter, their family bond and exceptional customer service will make you feel like you are a friend and not just a customer.
And the food - it is made with love, with passion and Sicilian pride. The cannoli are the freshest and tastiest we’ve had in all of Europe. Coffee is strong and rich, the biscuits melt in your mouth and the tiramisu slice is decadent. Even the savouries are flaky and flavourful.
We would stay longer in Catania just to sample more of Luigi and his family’s hospitality and amazing food.

My friend and I ran into Pasticceria Ficarra Luigi late tonight in hopes of getting some last minute cannolis before we leave Sicily the next day and the owner did not let us down!

He packed us up some yummy cannolis and wow they did not disappoint! We’re super glad we happened on this bakery and the next time I’m in Catania I will definitely pay another visit :)

My friend and I were flying out the next morning and were trying to find a place for one last late night treat. Even though they were technically closed, the owner invited us in and piped us two fresh cannolis. It was such an unnecessarily kind thing to do, but we'll never forget it. Not only did we get a delicious treat but we felt welcomed. I'd recommend anyone to go here if they are looking for a great experience for their tastebuds and the attitude of Sicily!
