I am very excited about today’s post as I will be taking you all back to the beautiful little town of San Vito Lo Capo, in Sicily. Today I will be reviewing one of my all-time favourite pastry shops: Pasticceria Peralta. Their sweets, pastries and cakes are the best in town!
Whenever we are in San Vito and feel like something sweet, we also pay this place a visit.
They make all kinds of delicious Sicilian treats like cassata, pesche dolci, cream puffs, ricotta filled graffe…
In fact, I really find it hard to make up my mind about what to choose!
Their cannoli, though, are simply perfect. When we last visited San Vito, we were lucky enough to witness how they actually make them. Here are some photos I took to be able to show you!
See how quickly they fill them!
We also saw them making and decorating cakes filled with lemon cream… yum!
And baking cassata’s.
If you are ever in town, check out Pasticceria Peralta, it highly recommend it!

HOW TO GET AROUND IN SAN VITO LO CAPO & MACARI
The best way to get around in San Vito is on foot or by bike!
A car is necessary if you want to visit the surrounding areas like Lo Zingaro, Erice and Trapani.
HOW TO GET THERE
The little Airport of Trapani Birgi “Vincenzo Florio” is about halfway between Trapani (18km) and Marsala (16km).
It is served almost exclusively by low-cost Ryanair flights, mostly from other cities in Italy and a few other European cities like London-Luton, Paris-Beauvais, Stockholm, Barcelona-Girona, Malta, Monaco, Frankfurt, Brussels.
Or you can land at Palermo’s Falcone-Borsellino Airport in Punta Raisi.
To get to San Vito it is best to rent a car or get a transfer from your hotel.
