They have a fan on the terrace of Prestipino, which makes it tolerable in the +35°C heat. Good service, brilliant location near the piazza, and good coffee at 1,90 each. Definitely a place to return to.

Fantastic service, delicious food, good coffee and beautiful setting. The building is beautifully presented and was very pleasant and cool sitting inside. Toilets were lovely and clean too - bonus!! Great with the kids and made us feel special

Located centrally along the promenade, this cafe offers some of the best granitas which are typical local sorbets. Pair it with a glass of prosecco, and you will get a gratis snack platter which can easily make for a meal on its own.

Amazing location (which you pay a premium for) but the desserts were pretty good. Granita was very nice even on a slightly chilly may evening.
