We tried really nice granite (pistacchio and mandorla were super!), and then a cannolo which was not that great. Prices are really good (granita €1, 80).

Nice little gelateria with a lot of delicious and typical sicilian sweets. The other thing that was good for us is that there were also vegan ice creams (pistachio, vanilla, chocolate and nocciola) , biscuits and granita. Location is also good because it is on the main street!:)

We just happened to pass here strolling along the boulevard looking for a place to try the famed Canoli. Seeing the Tripadvisor certificate made us go in and what we found were the best canoli I have ever had, and the absolutely ultimate ice cream. Make sure to try the pistacchio ice cream, home made using the famous Sicilian pistacchios... More

Amazing Granita....great "panzerotti" ...I do not even want to mention the cassata neither the arancini. Simply spectacular. In addition there are few tables and air conditioning system. Spectacular for a quick breakfast or lunch.

We visited Giardini in August 2014, and yes we went back to this little gem of sweetness. A superb place for arancini, granita and brioche, sweet cakes and ice cream! This place is a great little find.

I love this place, everything is wonderful and if I need something last minute to bring to a party this is my go-to place every time. After my sister's first visit in Sicily something from this shop is always number one on her Christmas list, the chocolate with hot peppers are her favorite. My favorites are Baba Rhum and Cassata...
