Gorgeous place! After visiting the Greek Theatre we walked through the alley lined with orange trees to have a granita with brioche here - excellent way to enjoy a sunny afternoon in Taormina :). Ginseng coffee is also recommended!

Just popped in for a pit stop. Enjoyed a 1 litre carafe of local wine for 8 Euros. Wow! It's 18 Euros per glass in our posh hotel. Very popular place with a buzz. Big choice of ice creams too.

The best granita we have tasted in Italy. Fruity, chilled, not over icy, smooth to the palate, cleansing. With an optional whipped cream topping.
