If you love granita that this is the place you must visit when in this part of Sicily. We stopped in after a day at the beach and visited the owner Aurelio and had some of his famous granita. For the first time I tried granita in a brioche, I was not convinced but it was delicious in the end.... More

This is a perfect place to start your day. Can't say enough good things about it. Loved to sit and watch the locals come and go. They never made fun of us for drinking 3 cappuccino in the morning. Sandwiches and gelato very good to

I was looking forward trying this famous granita but came back a bit disappointed. Sure it tastes nice, but it's not all that special. I felt like the glory days of this place are over as service wasn't particularly friendly, nor cheap, nor was the setting nice or hygienic.

It seems that one does not go to Bar Roma simply for some of the best lemon granita in Italy, but also for the warm hospitality of bar owner, Aurelio. We had a fantastic experience. Not to be missed!

Aurelio is a great host, and not a bad maker of granita which he showed us had been voted second best in all Italy. From our tasting, richly deserved, along with the lovely tasting brioche. The bar is very much part of the locality and an experience not to be missed.

While walking we accidentally found bar Roma. Quaint little shop. The owner is quite the character and brings charm to the experience. Great granite.

This has been featured in some BBC food programmes, so it achieved a certain notoriety. But it is well-deserved, the granita is just sublime. But there is nothing else on offer, apart from the ubiquitous caffe. Well worth a visit just for the granita. Don't be put off by the harbour surroundings.
