“Excellent Granite!”
Reviewed 19 August 2014 via mobile

We popped in here for a granite having been recommended by our hotel. There were only a few of the many flavours on the menu available so we had a lemon and a strawberry .The taste was fantastic and we will definitely be back to try another!

“Great Granite the best in town”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

Try this place for the latest cool food in Taormina. Granite as it's called is basically very similar to sorbet, made with fresh fruit, sugar and water it's worth a try as opposed to ice cream, I'm sure it's certainly healthier. I did however avoid the fruit types and went for a great combination of expresso and almond very nice

“Overrated, but still delicious!”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

I would agree with Roberto's review. They didn't have most of the menu and the staff were short. The granita we had was the nicest we tried in Sicily but after hearing so much about this bar we were let down. I'd stop in if passing by but wouldn't seek it out.

Fantastic Gelato and Sorbet! A definite must try! The Nutella flavour gelato as well as the many fruit flavoured sorbets were fantastic!
