If you are in the area (downtown Trapani) do not miss this old, well-known spot. Excellent local pastries and - most of all - a fantastic granita. I believe the place might be crowded in summer, but in early November it was a wonderful discovery

Top class granitas:coffee n almonds,figs,fresh lemon! Don't trust foregneirs or italians from the north: this is how to serve a traditional granita,all the rest is cheap fake gourmets talk.

We ate there for first day in our trip and get back after a trip late night. They were closing but open and serve for us last cannoli. We ate cannolis at Palermo, Taormina, Modica and Siracuse but there is the best in Sicilia! It's big and the paste is different-better. Family business.

This place is famous for granita of different tastes. Beyond lemon, strawberry, coffee they have also some traditional flavours as almonds, pistache and jasmine. You can have granita with brioche and anise cookies if you want to follow the original sicilian tradition.

Had a lemon, and pistachios granite. It was watery, and melted before arriving to our table. Some pieces of granite were like ice with no taste. Overall awful experience.

We ve waited 45 minutes to order 2 granites and a small bottle of water !! The waiters were working under pressure and were a bit rude... If you have the choice pick somewhere else.

We wanted to taste sicilian cannoli and granita. The staff was really nice. The owner was very helpful and talkative:-) We chose cannoli cassata and granita al caffe. Everything was really tasty.

Dropped by for a short visit with my wife. Good cannoli and cakes, but a mediocre latte macchiatto was an unpleasant surprise. One of the bartenders was helpful in recommending the assortment, while the old owner was very fussy about having to find the change. All in all - nothing special.

Nothing special really. The cannoli was good and the cassita likewise. We visited in april and there was no places to sit outside and the interior isnt really something you would write home about.
