We tried a few granitas while were on the Cinque Terre. This place had the best ones by far. Made with real lemon juice, they had a wonderful tangy flavour. You can even have a shot of vodka added, if you are so inclined.

We stopped by for lunch and had the most wonderful salad and bruschetta. The staff is wonderfully pleasant and speak quite good English. It was quick, good, fun and extremely worth the stop.
