What a great hole-in-the-wall. The soul food menu looked great, but I admit all we tried was the granita, which was amazing. Tried the watermelon, orange and pineapple...all with the lemon ice cream. If you aren't familiar, granita is a frozen dessert that is much denser than a shaved ice (or Hawaiian ice) and made with REAL fruit. At Zammuto, you can get a granita on its own or order it as an "unusual"...where they add in soft serve ice cream.

This is a drive in-style restaurant. Order at the window and take your food to go or eat at the picnic table by the parking area. It's in a residential neighborhood, so you'd never really know it's there.

Go here and get a granita, a twinkle cup or an unusual. Do not bother with chain ice cream treat places like Red Mango and Baskin Robbins. They are all trying to be Zammuto's. You haven't tasted real ice cream until you've been here. So, so good!!! :)
