Must Try at Least Once!

The best restaurant I've ever eaten! The gelato and snacks (arancini, pizzette...) are what I crave when back in the U.S. Located in Oliveri, small tourist town on the beach in Sicily, Italy. Would recommend to all that want authentic Sicilian cuisine.

We are staying with friends in Oliveri during the off season and had to come here for granita in the morning and gelato in the evenings. I tried the lemon and strawberry granitas ~ both flavorful.
