We popped in here for a granite having been recommended by our hotel. There were only a few of the many flavours on the menu available so we had a lemon and a strawberry .The taste was fantastic and we will definitely be back to try another!

Try this place for the latest cool food in Taormina. Granite as it's called is basically very similar to sorbet, made with fresh fruit, sugar and water it's worth a try as opposed to ice cream, I'm sure it's certainly healthier. I did however avoid the fruit types and went for a great combination of expresso and almond very nice

I would agree with Roberto's review. They didn't have most of the menu and the staff were short. The granita we had was the nicest we tried in Sicily but after hearing so much about this bar we were let down. I'd stop in if passing by but wouldn't seek it out.

Fantastic Gelato and Sorbet! A definite must try! The Nutella flavour gelato as well as the many fruit flavoured sorbets were fantastic!

This is really THE place to be if you want to eat some granita's. They are made of fresh fruit and ingredients. Don't ask an orange granita in July. It's not the season of oranges, so you will not get any. Really genuine food and taste is divine !

Nicely decorated little bar, sympathic owner, good freshly made granita. The best granita I ever had to be honest.

We had been told by a local that this bar served the best granite in town. He was right. Flavours are fresh and strong with no hint of artificiality. The brioche accompanying it was tender and moist. If you like ice cream (or even if you don't ) try this.
