The Amalfi Coast is famous for its wonderful lemons, and there are so many ways to enjoy them during the summer. Now in Amalfi there is a new way – a Granita di Limone – served up with a friendly smile by Andrea. While his cart says “Gelato al Limone,” what Andrea has whipped up is a very refreshing Granita di Limone, or a Lemon Ice. A granita is more the consistency of a blended ice drink, but it is served in a cup with a little spoon. Andrea’s Granita di Limone is light and not too sweet, and its intense lemon flavor is enhanced by little pieces of lemon rind. Delicious!
Andrea is from Amalfi and has just started this summer to sell his Granita di Limone overlooking the beach in Amalfi. He was already attracting a lot of customers Monday evening from the tourists walking by and the locals stopping to greet him and try out his granita. I often find Granita di Limone too sweet, with too much sugar masking the tartness of the lemons. But Andrea’s was excellent, not overly sweet and lots of lemon flavor!
I know I’ll be stopping by here frequently this summer for something refreshing and cool on a hot afternoon. I wish Andrea a successful summer … and by the taste of his Granita di Limone … it’s going to be a busy one for him in Amalfi!

So cute!! I LOVE that cart and what a perfect setting!! Bravo Andrea! I agree with you on the sugar content – prefer a little more tart and Andrea’s granita di limone sounds perfectly delicious!
Ciao Laura! Thanks for stopping by … always great to hear from you! You’ll have to try Andrea’s granita di limone the next time you’re in Amalfi. Hope we’ll have the chance to meet on your next visit! 🙂

Lovely! There’s nothing like a real granita. His cart is so sunny-looking, too. 🙂
