Messina is famous for its sweet snack pignolata - soft pastry like a doughnut with one half covered in chocolate and the other in vanilla icing. If that's enough to make you drool then head to Pasticceria Irrera to try them. They've been making them at this bakery since 1910. Irrera also serves the ice drink granita and cake specialities such as Torta Letizia or Fiori di Mandorlo.
And there are other things to try out, such as the heavenly almond cakes and traditional cannoli or cassata Siciliana.
Pasticceria Irrera is not only a fantastic pasticceria, but is also a caffeteria, a place you can relax in, meet up with your friends and treat yourself to something nice with a caffè.
They also sell online, so if you are celebrating, maybe a special occasion, then log in and order your favourite pastries.
