Searching for our beloved cannolo in Catania and we enquired where to go for the best - they pointed to Nonna Vincenza's. We were not disappointed. This is just a small shop with tables and chairs in the square outside. Our first purchase was a...More

I was not very hungry when I passed by the shop but everything looked so nice here, I almost would like to buy one item for each stuff. They simply carry the traditional Italian taste and presentation.

Our coffee comes from the experience of traditional Sicilian sweets, if it seems heavy it's just a matter of taste. For vegetarians ralizziamo savory on Flood only with tomatoes and salad. But if you do not like the taste of the Sicilian tradition, we are...More

Anyone that doesn't think this place is amazing is not a foodie. Good food is about quality and the ingredients in these pastries are pure and not notch. The chocolate in the cannoli is among the best I have ever tried (and I've eaten a...More
