You have to go to taste the almond wine at the place that is supposed to have invented it - have it with a cannoli. And enjoy the view. But it is really just for tourists these days - don't expect fine dining!

The place is good for breakfast and ok for aperitivo. The aperitivo is nothing special though. Their specialty is brioche plus granita. The views are nice especially if you sit on the piazza - prices are on the higher end

Coffee was terrible, cutlery was dirty and we waited 40 minutes for a panini, taking in consideration that the terase was empty. DON'T RECOMEND!!

Antico Caffè San Giorgio in Castelmola overlooks the beautiful and scenic place to monumental 'entrance to the village, greeting, with its inviting feel, from 1907 visitors to the small village ... Here in this historic bar you can enjoy a natural relaxation and always enjoying the now famous Blandanino Almond wine, produced with fine grapes, almonds and Sicilian secret essences. At this very historic Caffè its founder, Don Vincenzo Blandano created the wine flavored with almonds, which he called his "Blandanino", a mysterious and dark amber liquor into which merged different odors and flavors of Sicily, including the almond, the raisins, spices, orange blossom and jasmine.
