“Fell short of expectation based on some revues”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

There is nothing wrong with this place but it is just a basic place which is largely about the ice cream. On our visit here only a small number of the ice cream flavour options were available and the guy that served us wasn't overly helpful. No queues but we may just have caught it in a bad day.

“Amazing granita !”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

Situated in a small square close to Taormina's main street - visited in the morning around 10 and already quite packed with people. Unlike in the peak months of July and August, in September they do granitas for take away.

I had the almond and chocolate granita and after tasting it, I quickly realized why this place is always full !! Be patient if you find a queue - it will be worth the wait for sure !

“Lovely quirky bar, fantastic granita”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

Lovely quirky bar, waiter very attentive . Tried the strawbeey granita with cream was so delious that I had to have another. Also try the hot thick chocolate with a brioche , it is wonderful. This was the best 16 euros I spent all week. My only disappointment was that I did not find it until our last day.

“Superb granitas and lovely setting”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

Lovely setting off the main street in Taormina, great for people watching opposite 2 outdoor restaurants. I had the peach granita with cream, yummy. Really tasted of peaches. Lots of the others looked good too, some multi layered. We also used this bar for pre and post dinner drinks but be aware it closes at 11pm.
