Coffee and pastries in the morning, gelato and granita in the afternoon and evening, and delicious arancini for a picnic lunch on the boat or the beach. The arancini got the highest marks from our...

I have been a client of Tano Bar since its inception in 1983. Tano Bar is reknown for its sensational granita made from seasonal fruits and mouthwatering gelato. Nonna Pina's "to die for" homemade Aeolian delicacies including her infamous arrancini will have you coming back for more. Tano and his wonderful family will make you feel special from the day...
