We stopped here for coffee and what caught our attention was the great quality of thecoffee, the youthful and welcoming staff as well as the cute terrace outside the bar. It's a great setting for a relaxation pause from the visit to the beautiful old city of Ragusa.

Had a lemon and ricotta ice cream and also an almond granita, both excellent, a must - stop if you're in town.

Relaxed little place. Staff is great and helpful. Caffes are excellent, cannoli are one of the best I tried in Sicily. Gelato is also really good. We stopped only for a quick caffe but stayed an hour on the terrace trying different sweets.

A simply coffee becomes a nice experience. This is the result due to the congeniality hospitality of the young staff and the very goodness of the coffee.

Very good gelato right outside of the Ibla gardens. Highly recommend the ricotta gelato with cinnamon (Cannella) on top. Got one to share but wish we each had our own in the end!

The owner of the B&B we stayed in, La Casa del Gelsomino, also owns this place and we popped in during our exploration of Ragusa Ibla. The gelateria seems to be very popular not only among turists, but locals as well which is always a good sign! And no wonder as it offers mouthwatering pastries,coffee, granitas and gorgeous ice-cream at... More

This caught my eye because it was full of locals - a good sign, in addition the prices were clearly stated outside - another good sign. Turning around to go back to it I spotted joke about Harley Davidson parking... that was it, we had to stop here. The cannoli di ricotta were freshly made and affordable (given the location)....

One of the best granita I've had in sicily. A bar really frequented by locals and it's friendly and unpretentious. Try the almond granita.

The almond, coconut and cherry ice creams were especially big hits here. Though the number of flavours is not as large or quite as inventive as the gelateria up the hill it was good value at €2.50 for a large coppa (tub). If you wish to sit down there is seating at cafe tables directly outside the cafe and whist... More

The authenticity and atmosphere of the place and the gelati made this a unique experience. A must try if you ever visit Ragusa Ibla. The quality of the gelati, granita and coffee were outstanding and the staff very helpful and friendly. The owner is a real character, a real sicilian man!
