Pasticceria Savia

The historical Pasticceria Savia holds somewhat of a legendary status in the city and is said to be the place that serves some of the best arancini in the area (multiple stuffings available to choose from). After the savoury treats, tuck into one of the airy pastries or decadent cakes.


Italian coffee doesn't need a special introduction, and the variety of local sweets and pastries is truly mind-boggling - many an establishment in Catania serve mouthwatering Italian delights, from cream-stuffed cannoli to chocolate-filled croissants, and other alluring treats, notably granita, which is a semi-frozen dessert. In the savoury department, Sicily is known for its juicy arancini (stuffed rice balls, coated with bread crumbs and then deep-fried. They are usually filled with ragù, mozzarella, and peas).
