This is a small shop run by an old lady where you can taste amazing local sweets. Try the Genovesi (local pastries) but make sure they are served warm, they are delicious. Another sweet spot are the almond pastries, amazingly good!

This place seems to come out of a fairy tail. Cheap and amazing sweets baked daily, old women serving you kindly. You simply need to try it.

The sweets I had here tastes like homemade. I had the genovese biscuits and were delicious. I went back for another round before leaving Erice. Also I tried the honey biscuit which was very good too. I recommend this place!

This unassuming bakery offers the best Genovesi with Ricotta in town. As you walk into the small shop, you walk into the past, in a truly authentic bakery that hasn't changed a bit at least in the last 30 years.
