We were driving from Catania to Monica and stopped in many small villages. Monterosso Almo is a very quaint and quiet village. We stopped and walked around the town square and had a gelato at Bar Capriccio. It was the smoothiest and creamiest gelato I have ever had. Delicious and it was only 1.20 Euro.

We stopped to try this specialty of the region... Who would think of replacing the cone with delicious brioche, but that is what they do! Too rich for my blood, but the teenagers in our group wished we could stay there forever to enjoy this treat! The staff was friendly, and their recommendation of the local pistachio blend (I forget... More

During our stay in Taormina on every night after dinner we would come here for dessert and have a couple of scoops of gelato and a lemincello. The gelato was delicious and my favorite was the pistachio. Very popular little place to sit outside and people watch. Also seemed not so many tourists and a lot of locals which is... More

Perfect for grabbing a drink, gelato or pastry while people watching if you can stand all the smoking outside. Had a delicious torte & the staff helped me decide on which kind of coffee drink to get.

It is what it is…nothing fancy but an ideal place to have another cafe with a beer to re charge the batteries. Moderately priced.

Since we are with the cruise excursion so we only get about 1 hour. Due to this reason, we have no choice but go for a quick refreshment. This bar has great sandwiches, pasta and coffee. Decent price with good quality. Great for a quick recharge!

Huge choice, a small icecream here is the size of a medium everywhere else. Nice how they put one flavor of gelato in the cone and wrap your second choice around it all with the scoop. The cherry flavor is amazing, so amazing i think i may have had four in three days. Delicious with a big recommendation to try... More
