A well known spot in Catania next to Teatro Massimo. Lovely spot for relaxing and watching the world go by. Large range of gelati which is served in brioche - a huge portion which I was unable to finish! Coffees and beverages were all reasonably priced as well. Thoroughly recommended.

We searched out this little gem as it is a bit further afield than the duomo and shopping areas. There was a great range of deserts I was disappointed after ordering seeing an amazing range of sundaes in a menu on the table and I had just picked gelato, although that was very nice. My daughters Oreo ice pudding was delicious. It's also situated on a little piazza with some great architecture to view so worth going for a little afternoon treat.

Comis Ice Café is right in front of Teatro Massimo and I am sure does a brisk trade during the theatre season. It is a bright place with tables out front. It is well attended by both locals and tourists. The staff are friendly and efficient.
Their gelati is excellent but is their icecream dolce - pistachio and chocolate that are the ones we returned for.

The granita is so delicious here! I didn't try the granita anywhere else but many reviews say that Comis has the best granita in Sicily. My husband I agreed that their best flavors are mandorla (almond) and pistacchio. These flavors are even better when combined! We also enjoyed their coffee, gelato, and waffle with pastacchio sauce. The cafe is located next to Teatro Bellini. You can either grab something to go and sit in the plaza or hang out in their outdoor seating area. Some reviews say they charge for sitting at a table (like many other places) but we were never charged..that we could tell from the receipt ha. So maybe ask before you sit down. Great place to relax and people watch. Friendly staff and great service.
