When it comes to sweet shops, Cappello is a true Palermitan institution and is famous for their setteveli cake with seven layers of chocolate and hazelnut cream. There are two locations in the city center: the original pastry shop and its behind-the-scenes laboratory, both of which are located between the cathedral and the Capuchin Catacombs.
The newly renovated shop reopened in early 2023 with indoor and outdoor seating, a full display case of ricotta cream-filled sweets, marzipan fruit, fried sfince puffs, artisan chocolates, nougat, and gelato.
