Stopped here for a cafe latte and espresso mochiatto plus a pastry of course, after taking the 534 bus up to Aci Trezza from Catania. The bus, by the way, was a bargain - 2.50 euros each for all day ticket. pleasant place, nice service,...More

Well, I came here just after quick lunch just because I read about it. I was not hungry at all, hence my review is more “objective”. I had granita with brioche. I “sublimated” my taste experience...!!! Definitely go for it!!!

Went there just to buy a take-away ice-cream. The waiter was really rude and he seemed irritated because we only bought two ice-creams. Disappointed by the ice-cream: there was more whole nuts than ice-cream in the “baccio ice-cream” (itialian chocolate).

No frills bar serving delicious food - don’t walk by. The choice of food on the menu is limited, the choice of drinks is extensive. The gelato is divine. Suitable for a relaxing snack at any time of day.

Great cappuccino, amazing cannoli with ricotta, tasty Arancini, friendly waiter. The place is in the city center, one street up from the coast, and close to many restaurants. Would go back here.

Fantastic almond and pistachio granita. It's in my top list of places I tried together with Artale in Ortygia. The brioche is excellent too.
