A familiar fixture will return to the streets, er, sidewalks of Little Italy on Friday, May 20. For the past two years, Mount Granita Italian Ice has parked its seasonal sidewalk cart near the intersection of Mayfield and Murray Hill (2024 Murray Hill Rd.) to dispense scoops of its scratch-made confection. The warm-weather refresher returns for the season May 20 through 22.

Owner Christopher Giancola’s family immigrated from Sicily nearly 50 years ago and he credits his great-grandmother for the recipe. His Italian ice is made from 100-percent fresh fruit and cane sugar. There are no preservatives or artificial flavorings. Flavors such as lemon, mango, mixed berry, coconut, mint mojito and orange creamsicle are available on a rotating schedule. Check this website to follow the action.
