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

The granitas here are utterly amazing, you can feel the taste of fresh, ripe fruit. In a marvelous and lively location, it's a mandatory stop while in Taormina. The fragola is to die for.

We were in Taormina for four days, and ate here twice. Sitting on the shaded patio and watching the world go by while enjoying a lemon granita, brioche, and a cappuccino was the perfect start to the day. The granita is the highlight. Only issue...More

I wish we had found this little place earlier in our holiday, we were only able to visit it once. The granite are melt in your mouth, especially the strawberry one. A real treat.
