Our sorbetto is made in the authentic way perfected by Procopio dei Coltelli over 500 years ago. But while we do not use the snow from the top of Mt. Etna, we do only use purified water, sugar, and fresh fruit. No preservatives, nothing artificial. Just pure, cool sorbet made in the artisanal way by our chefs and mother nature.
