  • On the recommendation of friends Sicilians who advise against eating the ricotta in August and to make an exception to the rule and keep some space for the "Genoese" hot, we went to pastry search Grammarian Maria. Attracted by the scent, we immediately got one before dinner. Truly sublime. Congratulations

  • Simply amazing... no other words. And the place is super humble despite all of the hype! Try the "Genovese" which is the classic pastry from Erice  more »
  • Seems to get into a different era, scents and flavors of the past. His fame and totally deserved. To try

  • Nice stop on your walk up he heels of Erice. They have a cute garden courtyard. The history of the place is interesting. Maria lived and worked in a covenant for 15 years and after she left she opened up this place with no money and 3lbs of almonds. The story on their site is more detailed but cool to be a part of it. The only down side is that they ship all over the world now so it's not like the food is so unique you can't have it again, but I guess that's good if you want to keep eating it.
  • The best in town. Taste Sicilian cakes. Nice coffee
  • Growing up in NYC, we would stop at Ferrara's and pick up a dozen cannoli on our way to dinner with la famiglia every Sunday.. I thought I knew great cannoli until I had Maria's in Erice. This is THE CANNOLI by which all other cannoli should be judged. A-mazing!!!
  • Nice place for the typical Erice pastries, the almond milk was a nice accompaniment. We went back later for the almond and lemon granitas. We even met Maria herself.
  • O è of the best pastry shops in Sicily. Nice garden.
