Dating from 1892 and especially renowned for its granite, this beloved place vies with its next-door neighbour, Dolceria Corrado Costanzo, for the honours of Noto's best dessert shop. Frozen desserts are made with the freshest seasonal ingredients (wild strawberries in springtime, for example), while the delicious torrone (nougat) bursts with the flavours of local honey and almonds.

On quiet nights, the place closes at around 10pm.
