Not only did we have an outstanding fresh lunch at Alfredo's and delicious granita, but Alfredo saw us walking along the road and offered us a ride into town! What a legend.

A definite pit stop for a truly delicious Sicilian ice-cream or granita by day or by night. Right by the seafront, an exquisite place!

When traveling to Salina, you MUST stop at Da Alfredo's for an incredible pane cunzato, which is a huge open face sandwich (easily split between two) and the best granita in Italy (try the pistachio, so fresh, you can taste the ground nuts).

This was the best tasting granite we had during our two week tour of Italy and the ocean view enhances the experience.

If you can afford to get there, Salina (and the other Eolian islands) give you a splendid time, but Alfredo's granite on the sea at Lingua are what turns your holiday into a lazy paradise, especially if you stay nearby, as we have done several years running. You find yourself drifting past what's left of the little salt lake and... More

I had read so many rave reviews about this place and we were happy that it was still open when we visited . The location was perfect..an old house in the piazza in Lingua looking out to see. Alfredo, his son and grandson were delightful . We sadly only had time for a granita but it was delicious!

A trip out to Lingua is lovely along the rolling road overlooking the sea, and at the end is Da Alfredo's - the arancia and fragola granite are so refreshing and delicious, accompanied by beautiful views of Lipari (at sunset - when the island turns pink), Stromboli smoking in the distance and Panarea.

Pane cunzato followed by coffee granita....the most perfect meal ever. And in a gorgeous, seaside location to top it all off!

Go here and have the granita... you can thank me later ;) And, if someone can figure out a way to get it to New York exactly the way it is in Salina... please send me some!
