Coming from the imagination of Annette Cavallaro, Ellijay's little Italian is a charming spot offering a unique blend of Italian street food and an ice cream bar. Several street food options are there to try, including eggplant paninis. You can get some cannoli, experiment with all the ice cream options, and include a little wine, if desired.

They’re closed on Monday and Tuesday each week. Everything is made to order, so we promise it will be worth the wait!

The ice cream bar offers floats, sodas, and milkshakes with different flavors. Grab the Bigfoot Tracks if you dare, which offers Oreo ice cream, whipped cream, a chocolate cookie, and a drizzle of caramel.
