Indeed well-deserved fame: they serve the best granita in town and you can also combine 2 different flavours in the same granita! We had ours to go, can't say more about the atmoshpere in the local, except it is vividly decorated.

Granita is ok. Nothing special. Tastes the same as the 100 other places selling it. At least at the 100 other places though the staff are happy and smiling. The staff here were rude and pushy and tried making us order before we'd even been...More

I loved this place. They have great croissants(especially con crema!) here, a big choice of granita, good prices as for Taormina. I loved their Prosecco and Aperol Spritz, the prices for drinks were also lower than average. This place is always crowded, day and night.
