Small shop with a lot of different nice products. Mostly pistachio, but also almonds, hazelnuts, lemon and nice wines from the slopes of Etna. The shop owner is very nice and informative.

Best Pistacchio in Bronte. Locally farmed Pistacchio on the slopes of Mt. Etna, harvested every two years Pistacchio exported around the world. Farm to table gelato.
