We found the best waiter in Sicily working at Grand Cafe Eldorado- Cristian! Take a visit and he will make your night something really special. Nothing is too much trouble. Definitely worth a visit

This is a lovely small cafe on the main street with a friendly welcome but beware...! The chocolate crepe is really REALLY a chocolate bonanza! (Lovely!-) Made to order, you have been warned... I wish I could have tried another crepe but just didn't have any room left in my tummy!

Take a seat on the terrace, relax and enjoy the view. Acireale is not a touristy town. Yet it is filled with cute shops, friendly locals and great food. The wait staff here were very attentive and unbelievably nice. The food was tasty and there are a variety of pastries to try as well. My husband and I only stopped... More

After 10 days in Sicily and a daily ice cream, we both agreed that this one was the best one we've had. Delicious, natural, not too sweet, creamy and we had two in a row :)

They have a great selection of fresh pastries and sweets - made our choice somewhat difficult. We had coffee, tea and two Cannoli - typical for south Mediterranean. The service was ok and the food was good and fresh.

This is a particularly pleasant place to have coffee, breakfast or an afternoon ice cream in Acireale : the atmosphere is so Italian, you're sitting next to the main square with a view on a magnificent 18th century church, friendly locals sit at the tables observing life going by, with not the slightest hint of hurry ( their lesson to...

We recently spent a week in and around Acireale and we found ourselves here just by chance and what a chance it was. From the second we took a seat it just got better, the staff were amazing, going all out to tell us what each treat had, what it was made of etc, along with a little humour as... More

We stayed in Acireale, Sicily for a total of four days. Two of those days included having lunch at Gran Caffe Eldorado. :-) The food was great and the staff were exceptional! We had our (almost) 2-year old toddler with us, and he was easily entertained by the servers and the owner himself. Also loved the ambience, with a great... More

My friends and I just needed a place to sit, sip wine, eat pizza, and talk ... and we walked by this perfect little place and loved it. Even though I only knew a few words of Italian and the hosts knew very little English, they gave great customer service. Prices are reasonable and staff are very likable. I definitely... More

Eldorado is tradition. Situated in the centre of Acireale, next to Piazza Duomo, Eldorado always offers typical Sicilian sweets. You can sit
comfortably in the tea room upstairs or outside, where you can admire Piazza Duomo and Corso Umberto and taste a delicious Granita almond&coffee or an Arancino Ragu, our specialities! Your experience will be even more special thanks to the cordiality of our staff than will advise you what to eat: welcome to Eldorado!
