We had heard that this restaurant had recently won a local granita competition held in Acireale so we just had to visit. My group tried a variety of flavors including the competition winning flavors of almond and chocolate. We all loved the almond (the almond flavor and texture was great) as well as the pistachio, peach and strawberry. These granite were definitely a level above the typical granite in Sicily that can sometimes become slushy (although almost always delicious) and the flavors here were so well infused. From our outdoor seats, we also had a great view of one of the beautiful baroque churches in Acireale. A memorable visit for our group.

Delicious and amazing ice-cream flavours. I am amazed with the Mandorla Tostate flavour. Even coffee is awesome. So many good flavours that you are confused which ones to choose...
