Pasticceria Tamborrino, Five Dock (20 Dec 2008)

75 Great North Road, Five Dock NSW 2046

A tempting display of quality Italian desserts to satisfy your sugary tastebuds can be found here. I thought the cannola were very good, try the Ricotta Cannoli for possibly the best in Sydney. I'd definitely come back to try more calories.

Fruit tart

Vanilla and chocolate cannola

Apple crumble


Pistachio and chocolate profiterole (Sorry I didn't take note of the actual name of it)

hi annie, i love fruit tartlets too. they are always on my must-haves in any cake shop, especially in France.

hi miss honey, don't forget to try the ricotta cannoli and let me know if you've ever tasted better.

There's an italian cake shop in Burwood on Burwood Rd thats makes beautiful ricotta cannoli, possibly one of the best that I've ever had. I have to try the one at five dock for comparison sake.

hi linda, if you can let me know the name of it i'll check it out to compare as well. Sydney's Best Cannoli Challenge has begun.

Hi Simon,

I am Italian and I can confirm that this is the best Italian Pasticceria in Sydney. Try the "Cornetti" (Italian croissant which are not as buttery as the French ones) and ask them to fill them with custard cream, chocolate cream or nutella at your choice. I personally like their custard cream. So tasty, a little bit lemony and not sickening at all. If you want an even better experience warm the cornetti up for 5 minutes in the oven at 100 degrees. The taste and smell is to die for. In Italy many people have a "cornetto" and cappuccino for breakfast and Tamborrino is the best place in Sydney where to have it not to mention the quality of all the other stuff. Best cannoli in Sydney; pastry is crispy, baked and not fried (which can be heavy and sickening in large amount).
Thanks for your great blog.
