We enjoyed delightful pastries here before exploring Erice, then stopped for a few more to take with us. I’ll bet anything they bake is delicious.

We visited Erice, high in the hills, on a sunny March day. Maria’s bakery was recommended so we arrived to find a gorgeous display of goodies. It was hard to decide what to purchase so we bought a small box of assorted small pastries. The...More

We read and heard about this place and high expectations for their products. We bought a few samples and tasted them. Our verdict too sweet, ordinary, nothing refined in flavor.

This little shop has a breathtaking array of Sicilian sweets and pastries. Thankfully they are also one of the few pasticcerias that I have been to that had food labels in English. Everything that we bought was fantastic and well made. The marzipan, rum, raisin...More

The best selection of any of the pasticcerias in Erice. Very fresh and they wrap them carefully for you to takeaway or you can eat there with coffee. Busy but service was very efficient. The cookies are almond based and quite delicious with coffee.
