Ice cream with brioche is very very good. The place has a nice view of the sea. The staff were friendly.

Everything here looked fantastic! However I only tried the almond and gelosmine granita. This was my first ever Sicilian granite! Wonderful! Wish I had the space to try their cannoli. Don’t skip this place!

Had some hot snacks and gelato at this place a couple of times and wasn't disappointed. Nice and cheap, good service and well worth a visit.

We came here every day during our week long stay in Giardini-Naxos. They have great coffee, yummy sweets (brioches!!!), granita and ice-cream. We also took some of their almond and pistachio cookies home with us. The staff was lovely and we would go back anytime.

This friendly place does amazing pastries and cakes - and ice cream and granite. You should search it out and try the Arancini and little pizzas. It is one of those places you wish you had back in Blighty - with the same cheap prices!
