Here we stopped for a quick bite. Ended up getting a Aranchini (riceball) and a gelato. Both very good! A lovely place to stop by for a snack, seating inside or outside. Table service or just grab and go.

In this place you can find everything you could desire: ice-cream, granita, tavola calda (literally "hot table": it means arancini and other one-hand-piece food), cannoli and other sicilian goodies. The level is quite high. If you look at the counters, you feel a bit of dizziness... Great choice if you wanna taste a lot of good sicilian food in one shot!

Stopped for an early light dinner. Ordered 4 salads but only got 3. Since many of the waitstaff only speak Italian it took 3 employees to correct the order. Service is very slow and the waiter does not check back to see if everything is good at your table. However the staff was wonderful to the young child at our table. The desserts and gelato are amazing! I would definitely return for cafe and dessert or the gelato!!

Staff were really friendly and helpful, and everything I had here was delicious. I would definitely recommend the arancini, and the granita was just beautiful - served with warm fluffy brioche.
