No better black to eat gratita and brioche. You have to be relaxed and sit outside on the street. Not elegant, not fancy but real delicious flavours you never tried before

Horrible, to avoid! Place is supposed to be open until 22:00. Today at 21:15 they were in the shop but decide to leave and not serve anymore anyone! Never ever!!

Terrible service and average food. Waiting for 30 minutes with only 3 people ahead, for a basic croissant and the worst cappuccino ever. Very touristy place, to avoidMore

A really good place! Cheap prices if you take away - we had 4 aranchini, pizzeta, 2 baked flatbreads with ham and cheese and a gelato. Everything was tasty and fresh.

Ecstatic experience. You cannot miss the best street food of the island. In a very picturesque alley of the charming Ortigia you MUST stop here for a coocked-to-order panella or one of the most tasty arancini, and then the heavenly coffee granita with whipped cream...- or the pistachio, or almond one - and brioche. The staff is kind and nice, the prices are low: you cannot ask for more. Bless you all, Pasticceria Artale!More

Whilst in Ortigia, we visited this coffee shop as it was highly recommended. The mandorla are the best of the best. I took the whole tray in the display counter back to Malta with me. No wonder, excellent. Will definitely be going back for more.

Had a coffee and one of their small pastries both were rich and tasty. Earlier I had ventured into the shop to purchase some aranchini as it was highly recommended on TripAdvisor. Alas I was too early and there were none, but not to panic...as they lady behind the counter said they would be happy to make us some there and then if we care to wait five minutes. You betcha. We chose our flavours and true to her word they were soon ready and at 1.50 Euros each a feast of a bargain. Do not leave Origia without sampling these truly magnificent treats.More

I wanted to have "one of the best cannolo" so I reviewed places and went her. I made a great choice. It is a small coffee shop and bakery. I did not see any in the case, but when I ordered one, the order went...to the kitchen in the back, where it was filled and covered with pistachios. It was perfect!!!More

A family owned business since 1980. Great pastries,cannoli, and a fig based pastry that is topped with pistachios.

Cute pastry shop where we were allowed to have 1 pastry, 1 coffee and 1 OJ from our B&B voucher. I got the pastry with ham and cheese. There was just a little too much bread for me but I just took it off. My...hubby got a pastry with mushrooms & mozzarella which he enjoyed.More
