A must if you want a refreshing homemade granita thatโ€™s out of this world in taste and authenticity. I particularly love the fruit ones, made with real fruit.

Bar Tano is worth the short trip to Canneto if you are staying in Lipari Town. It is the perfect post-beach stop -- wonderful granita (truly the best you'll taste in Sicily) and conversation. Tano, the owner, makes everything fresh from real ingredients; the flavors...tasted much brighter than any we had on the mainland. The ambiance is great; Tano's photo collection (all taken by him) helps create a relaxing Mediterranean afternoon. You'll find yourself happily staying for the conversation because he knows about much more than granita. Worth the relaxing trip to this quieter part of the island!More

Best Granite and Brioche on the island by far and excellent customer service. Tano himself is always friendly and welcoming. Do not leave Canneto without coming here!

Perfect place for a beer or cafe caretto in the evening. Such a friendly owner sharing stories and making us feel very welcome. We went each evening of our stay. Highly recommended bar.

We had breakfast everyday at Tano's and he really has the best granite. We had very good beer here too. The granite with coffee and cream is unbelievably good. Tano is a very nice man who talks to his guests and warmly welcomes them to...the beautiful island of Lipari. We definitely recommend to visit him and his nice bar with sea view.

A very pleasant breakfast. Good coffee, good dolci, good views of the Mediterranean, Panarea and Stromboli, and good conversation with Tano. Right on Piazza San Cristoforo.

Well having visited Canneto beach Lipari many times the one constant is the great food, beverages and service at Bar Tano! Tano and his family are so helpful with all visitors and locals on Lipari. My favourites are semifreddo gelato, granitas, great coffee - but...basically all light meals in true Eolian style. And free WiFi with a strong signal! Tano has been an Italian Aussie identity for years and provides consistency of flavour, service and a smile. Coffee is the best roast in Canneto! Marie and Alan, Sydney AustraliaMore

The place is humble and you can only seat outside but we suggest to pay your granita and have it by the coastline on the opposite side of the street. Positives: They have two super delicious granita flavours which are the local speciality: 1) granita...caffe (coffee) 2) granita mandorla (almond) 3) it's an authentic place - no design, no customer service, just authenticity people and flavours. Negatives: 1) guess what's the othe side of my previous point 3..... ๐Ÿ˜ 2) outside table are on the main square so there is a bit of traffic 3) as typical Sicilian people, staff looks constantly annoyed from your request. But don't get confused or upset! It is the local way of being and deliciousness of the two granita I mentioned is worthyMore

We first visited Tano Bar nearly 10 years ago when we visited the island, this year we went back, and the owner recognised us. We enjoy going to Tano Bar, I love his granita's and we enjoyed trying out his flavours - Peach was amazing...so smooth and tasty. A big plus point for us was that the owner can speak very good english. Thank you we will be back some dayMore
