We returned here several times because our B&B was right at the corner. The granita with briochi was very tasty and refreshing. The prices are good and the staff was very friendly though they could speak a little better english.

tasty ice creams .If you want to sit down in this restaurant you will need to pay extra for service or just take away and eat your ice creams by the fountains

If you love ice cream that's the 'must try' place. Pistachio and ricotta flavours amazing! I tried dark chocolate and lime and they are good as well. Unfortunately, I have not enough time and space in stomach for more...

My girlfriend and I came here on the recommendation of some guys at Scirocco Sicilian Fish Lab - the gelato here is strong and awesome! Ask for the coffee gelato - wasn’t on display but it is amazing (:

We got the almond and pistachio granita with whipped cream on top and they were both really good - tasted even better when you combined both flavors! Friendly and good service and nice outdoor seating area with views of the piazza.

Very good gelato near the teatro. The usual flavours you would expect in Sicily and high quality. Definitely worth visiting while jn Catania

I ordered their brioche with gelato, which consisted of 3 scoops of gelato and a waffle cracker sandwiched between a large brioche bun. The gelato was fantastic! I chose dark chocolate, pistachio, and almond flavors. The gelato was soft and creamy and both of the...More
