The chaotic queue system (find a guy who will write your name down for an informal wait list queue) and brisk service can be overlooked for the amazing granitas and brioche. So many different flavours and truly the best we've had in Italy. We returned...More

Wish we had gone earlier. So many flavours and not enough time to try them all. We enjoyed sitting listening to a guy playing guitar on the church steps. Some of the flavours weren't in season. Orange was delicious

Nothing to add, it is an amazing place with amazing flavours that you can taste just here. You are sure that the flavours you are tasting come from real fruit and genuine ingredients.

Not situated on the main street but worth an amble down for a cool drink or superb ice cream. Sit alfresco and watch the world go by as you chill. Table service and reasonably priced.

This was recommended to us by someone who lives in Sicily and we weren't disappointed. The best granita in Taormina. I had almond and coffee - the menu was extensive for granita and it was delicious! Friendly service

Came here on recommendation by a local who said "go at 11am and have a granita for breakfast, it's typically Sicilian". I tried the caffe granita with almond & cream. Delicious! Never had anything like it before. Will be back tomorrow morning.

They have the BEST granita! The staff is friendly and the colorful ambiance fun. They allow multiple flavors. We had the lemon, strawberry and nocciola granita and they were all good...lemon and strawberry were favorites possibly because we enjoy nocciola gelato better than the granita....More
