Yep, if you want to go all Godfather on your trip. You have stop here for the one and only ‘Canolo’. If you know, you know. Best visited in spring and fall, otherwise one big circus.

The rich history in film of this location makes the visit that much better. We enjoyed lunch at the Bar Vitelli. The staff also spoke english so there was no language barrier, the food and drink were delicious.

They have good but pricy menu, granita was fine. You pay a bit more for the spot - in the end it is a cafe where The Godfather was being filmed.

For The Godfather fans, a must see. The owner is so accommodating to both guests and those wanting to take a pic. No one is turned away. I saw non patrons ask to use the restroom & be shown the way. We chose to have a snack - granitas, cocktails and salads were perfect. Prices were high by Italian standards, but reasonable by USA standards. Well worth the atmosphere opportunity and it keeps this monument alive! The town is GORGEOUS and all should take the time to walk around, camera-ready. I’ve gone out of my way on many trips for lesser locations. Bellissimo

If you come to Savoca you are clearly a Godfather fan, so this bar is as unmissable as it is iconic. We enjoyed a lemon and strawberry granita, glass of wine and beer and lapped up the environment and history of such a beautiful place. The bar is fabulous and full of memorabilia. Even if it wasn’t famous, it’s not to be missed!

Despite becoming a very touristy spot, the Bar Vitelli is still unmissable on a trip to Savoca. Full of Godfather memorabilia, parts of it feels a bit more like a shrine than a bar. But sitting there on a morning with an amazing lemon granita in your hands, one does feel like part of film history.

Believe it or not, a full size bus CAN make its way all the way to the top of the winding, very narrow road to Bat Vitelli. It is a bar, yes, and they do have some movie memorabilia in the room on the right as you walk in. It's quaint but clean. Very picturesque. We were there early in the morning, about 9 am, and had the place all to ourselves. we were a tour group of 10. We ate a scone or danish and had a wonderful 20 minute visit.

It was quite an exciting experience to sit outside Bar Vitelli at the very spot Al Pacino sat in The Godfather, one of my favourite films. It was a blazing hot day in Savoca and the bar offered plenty of shade after a lengthy exploration of the medieval town. Inside one can see artifacts and photos from the film. Tge good-looking barman was very polite and friendly: the service efficient and speedy. My only (slight) criticism were the prices. I paid a bit much for an ordinary beer. Other than that, the place is wonderfully atmospheric and relaxing. I strongly recommend a trip to Savoca and a stop here.

Savoca is a little town in the Messina area, not so far from Taormina. Bar Vitelli is so famous because the Movie "The Godfather", in a part, was shot here, the table, nearest the advertising "Itala Pilsen" remind the Al Pacino scene. The granita is cery good.

It is a pretty place if you want to see it with your own eyes that iconic scene from the Godfather,but other than that the bar itself is not very good. E X T R E M E L Y slow service even when only two couples were sitting at the bar. We got served after 40 minutes of waiting after notifying the waiter. Come here,take the picture and then leave. Do not waste your time
