“The oldest chocolate factory in Sicily”
Different for texture and its ancient cold working process, this chocolate directly descends from the Aztec Xocoàtl, and was brought to Europe by the Spanish in the 16th century. The Antica Dolceria Bonajuto keeps on producing it since 1880, respecting its origins and history!

Crackers and Biscuits for Cheese
The story begins in the confectioner’s shop in Alba where Luigi Leone used to produce small and delicious candy originals with intense fragrance to delight his clientele after a meal. The first tastes available were peppermint and aromatic flavours such as: cinnamon, fernet, rhubarb and gentian. A sweet heritage created through recipes inspired by tradition and the careful selection of the best ingredients! Here are just a few samples from our favourites in our bottega!
Relanghe was founded in 1994 by the Ceretto family who’s after many years of experience in the wine production decided to embark on a new challenge, to make well known the prestigious product of the Langhe hills: The Hazelnut. The original project was focused on the production of traditional crunchy Torrone with hazelnuts, but later Relanghe focused the attention on the Nocciola Piemonte I.G.P., which is now used to produce different sweets, fully respecting the production process. The family owned hazelnut’s orchards in the best areas of the Langhe hills (80 hectares) to be able to control the production of the hazelnut, from the land to the final product.
Paolo Lazzaroni & Figli is based in Saronno (near Milano) and is owned by the Lazzaroni Family. The Family originally owned 2 different companies which in 1927 ended up as one sole structure. It focused on the cookies production, maintaining at the same time the production of Amaretto Lazzaroni 1851 which has always been considered their “liquid cookie”. The liqueur is still produced following the old recipe dating back to 1851. The uniqueness is the result of the infusion of Amaretti del Chiostro di Saronno cookies in alcohol. Some of their products are seasonally produced!
When Pastry becomes Art, Pleasure, Quality and Tradition.
Everything started in 1953, when Mario Fiasconaro decided to open his first artisan pastry in Castelbuono (Palermo), producing some of the finest ice-cream and sweets like “cannoli” on the Island. Today his three sons including “Maestro Pasticcere” Nicola an international award-winning pastry chef, still follow family traditions and recipes including their famous “Panettone” a Christmas cake that we display every festive season!
