Caffè Italia is located in the heart of Ragusa Superiore. In fact, Piazza San Giovanni, which takes its name from the baroque Cathedral (Cattedrale di San Giovanni Battista), is the charming host of one of our favorite cafes in Ragusa.
The owner of this place has worked for more than 30 years in the most renewed confectionery in Ragusa, developing impressive chef skills, especially concerning (delicious) pastries. Caffé Italia offers a quite wide range of traditional dishes going from the tasty arancina, timballo or pizza to almond biscuits, homemade ice-cream, granita and brioche.
The café reaches its beauty-peak during the summer season, as you can seat outside, enjoying your gelato and the sun, observing the tourists taking picture of the Cathedral or just playing the part of a native from Ragusa. Do not forget to stand up and visit St. John, as it is totally free, quite beautiful and unique.
If you are leaving the RagusaShire (poor you), don’t miss the chance to buy a box of Caffé Italia‘s famous biscuits made of almond, which is a must when in Sicily!
Hope you can enjoy our gallery and then let us know what you think of the food and place.
