Comfortable

It's a very famous place in Vulcano, since it is next to the harbour where ships stop. I use to have a coffe or an icecream there. It's a comfortable place and icecreams are good.

We visited this self service bar/restaurant twice during our week in Vulcano. The selection of cakes and ice cream were excellent. Prices were reasonable and there is a large adjacent shaded area with tables where we sat and watched the boats coming and going in the harbour. Downside is that the staff seemed very miserable and unwelcoming.

Although we were greeted with some sour faces, the Gelato was perfectly sweet and tasty. It seems like the employees are tiered from the tourist season, but if you can look beyond that, you are in for a treat. Don't bother counting calories here, Enjoy!

Very unfriendly service! I don`t expect people to genuflect when I walk into a room, but the kind of kiss-my-behind attitude I encountered here from owner and waitress was beyond understanding. I guess they are just too well-off to have to work for their survival. But I will not go back there.

The only easily accessible gelateria on Volcano, their gelato was good but not exceptional. The customer service was poor. Staff was very unfriendly and impatient. They would not make eye contact and seemed uninterested in the customer.

right by the port, this is the perfect place to pop in for a coffee and snacks whilst waiting for your ferry or just being in town

You wouldn't necessarily think of going inside this establishment based on it's outdoor appearance, do not let that fool you. Inside is a hub bub of activity and good affordable food. It's the perfect spot for a quick breakfast, don't order outside as the service charge is steep, rather place your own order indoors and eat your food sitting outside... More

We enjoyed all the flavors of gelato we tried. It is artistically swirled onto the cones too! And the cannolis were delicious - recommended in Lonely Planet and we can see why. But it is the gelato that keeps drawing us back :)
