We first visited Tano Bar nearly 10 years ago when we visited the island, this year we went back, and the owner recognised us. We enjoy going to Tano Bar, I love his granita's and we enjoyed trying out his flavours - Peach was amazing so smooth and tasty. A big plus point for us was that the owner can... More

Just had breakfast here with my family. This is probably one of the worst granita I had. Watery and tasteless. The owner also saw we left it fully and didn't even consider to offer us an alternative or compensation. Will never come back and you shouldn't either.

We took a boat around the isle of Lipari and made a stop in Canneto. We spotted this bar and because it is a gelateria as well and we had our kids with us we selected it. Gaetano who runs the bar quickly recognised our Swiss dialect and it turned out he knew Sitzerland quite well. But what about the... More

This bar is not as popular as others in Canneto, and isn't as good as the other bars along the street. There isn't alot on offer at this bar. I wouldn't go again.

SInce 15 year we get here the best icecreams and cappuccino. "The" original bar in Canetto. If you are an Austrian...Ask the always friendy owner what his bar has got to with Christine Nöstlinger ;-) Typical Tripadvisor. The map location in Tripadvisor is horrible wrong (4/2015): Correct is .. maps.google.com/maps?q=38.490770N+14.962087W+(label)&ll=38.490770,14.962087&spn=0.004250,0.011579&t=h&iwloc=A&hl=en

We rented an apartment for a week in Canneto in early June. We spent a lot of time at Tano’s bar and enjoyed every minute. Coffee and pastries in the morning, gelato and granita in the afternoon and evening, and delicious arancini for a picnic lunch on the boat or the beach. The arancini got the highest marks from our...

We wandered into Tano Bar after spending an afternoon at the beach in search of a quick coffee stop. What we found was not only excellent coffee, but Tano, the congenial owner who spoke excellent English, got us to try his homemade granita, too. We started with the coffee-flavored one and it was so good we immediately wanted to try... More

We just got back from a bike trip to Sicily and the Aeolian Islands. Lipari is known for its Granita, water ices on steroids. Tano Bar is known to have the best, and I would agree! I had the lemon with cream on top (not recommended by the owner) It was awesome, reminding me of a lemon creamsicle. And the... More
