There are numerous shops in Modica selling the local chocolate. We tried Bonajuto, which has a nice old world feel about it and where you can see the chocolate being made at the back. There are numerous varieties available and samples of each of them on the counter. But we moved on up the Corso Umberto 1 to this shop which had been recommended on TA. It is just a simple shop, again with samples of many different chocolates on the counter, but unlike at Bonajuto where the chocolate was a familiar texture, the chocolate here was more grainy – the lady said you should suck it rather than chew it. This is apparently the old traditional Modica style using an old Aztec recipe and produced at low temperature so that the sugar grains are visible in the chocolate. We preferred this but we didn’t have time to compare it with the other offerings in the tow of which there are many. Here we also had Cannoli, made on the spot for us and these were really delicious, the filling light and really tasting of hazelnuts, pistacchios, and in no way sickly sweet.

The shop is located at the main street of modica bassa but technically it is right under our appartment in modica alta if you go down and up the 300 stairs ;-) But it is totally worse it and I could not resist to do the climb several times when we were staying in modica for a week! The staff is very friendly and let me try my poor italian language skills while ordering due cannoli :-) The chocolate is good but very sweet like it is tradition here I would come back everytime for the freshly made delicious cannoli!

Only around half an hour away from the Port of Pozzallo, L'Arte del Cioccolato Torrone Cannolo, is located right at the heart of the picturesque town of Modica. Recommended by friends, we were tempted to pay a visit out of curiosity as soon as we set foot on the island of Sicily. Needless to say, we were not disappointed. We ended up paying the shop a visit even on our way back home! The owners are a dedicated couple who passionately transform the tradition of chocolate and sweet making into an art form. The chocolates are pre-packed into bars of convenient sizes. There are plenty of chocolate flavours to choose from but those who find it hard to choose, can opt to taste the samples before buying. Only if you manage to resist the temptation, the cannoli and sweets will be meticulously wrapped for later consumption! If you are embarking on a long trip, you can also be provided with an ingredient kit, complete with cream, piping bag and ice, all nicely packed in a polystyrene box. The cannoli tubes will be packed separately to maintain their crunch. This guarantees that the product will remain fresh and as intended for hours, with the added benefit of you being able to assume the role of pasticcière when the right time is due! Well, no more said. You will have to try for yourself to believe! Only then your trip to Sicily will be complete!

Visited this shop based on the recommendations, and it was well worth it. Even though we had very little italian, the store owner explained us patiently everything he could around his art. There was a selection of different sweets and pastries, we decided just to try the famous cannoli. And even though we are no cannolo experts, the ones we were served were absolutely delicious.
