Excellent location in the middle of Corso Umberto, and perhaps the best general selection of snack foods such as Arancini, Cannoli and Gelato, but no Granita. Sandwiches and coffee and other light meal available and service is quick. But price is high and food not of a corresponding level.

Keep going back for more of this super yummy ice cream. The cafe doesn't look much but it is well worth a visit or two or three!! So far I have only tried the peach, cherry, pistachio, almond, tiramisu & white chocolate but I think there is a good chance we'll be going back for more!!!

After a long walking tour of Taormina on a very hot summer day we were looking for somewhere to rest, refuel and get on wifi. This cafe was a highlight of our visit! Since we were in Sicily I thought I should try their cannoli and granita which were delicious and great prices - only 3 euros each. The wifi... More

We were Taormina for 3 nights and we had gelato and cannoli atleast 1 for each of these days. The best gelato ever. The execution of filling the gelato cone was a delight to watch. The cannoli were to die for. They were freshly filled as you ordered them. The arrancini were very good as well. Highly recommend.

We called into this establishment at least 6 times in 10 days, first class staff daytime and evening, the selection of ice creams was astounding, hence the reason it was always packed inside and out. as i say the staff were excellent. So impressed was i with the service i left tips each time we visited.

First time we’ve tried aranchini in Italy and it was really good. We also ordered bruschetta which was possibly the tastiest I’ve ever had.

We went to get some ice cream but it left a bad taste due to the super unfriendly staff behind the counter! Would not recommend this, better off going a little further down the street for better quality, better service and a better price!

Excellent place to have a typical gelato. All tastes were amazing and the guy serving it on a cone was a true artist (get a cone and see for yourself ;)
