Disappointed in service and attitude. After purchasing our beverage we asked for toilet and WiFi. No toilet tissue in ladies toilet and no WiFi.

We were on our way to our hotel and ran into this place. What a great find. We had gelato, granita and an iced coffee. All were delicious! Some of the best if not the best we’ve had in Sicily. Can’t wait to go back!

We stopped by and tried this favorite dessert. My strawberry gelato was the best and the fresh squeezed orange juice was tasty as well. Nice, clean and comfortable.
