Loved our first experience of Granita had the peach and chocolate with cream and it was amazing! The raspberry was gorgeous and a lovely Italian man recommended the Almond flavour which a couple of people had and loved too!

the place to be for granita with brioche,a lot of flavours. very nice looking terrace with beautifull wall paintings, friendly people, the older man speaks a lot of languages and was funny. In the middle of the centrum, easy reachable by foot.

Don't miss this astonishing little bar very close to the amphitheatre. Primarily a small bar, with coffee and ice creams but they do a toasted sandwich too. But have the granite a with a brioche.

The Bam Bar takes great pride in their fresh made Granite! I stopped there several time while in Taormina and tried several different combinations and all were good! Definitely worth a stop by!

Bam Bar lived up to expectations. The outside of the bar is decorated in all Castlegirone hand painted ceramics and the staff are very welcoming and accommodating. The granite is always made with seasonal produce which makes their granite the best and smoothest you can buy in Toarmina. I also love the location, just off the main drag near the... More

After being to the Bam Bar and having Strawberry Granita with cream, all other Italian Granita is a disappointment. The Strawberry Granita with cream was so good I couldn't order anything else on return visits. Worth going to Taormina just to go to the Bam Bar.

I really wanted to try pistachio but they didn't have it for 4 days, I kept asking and finally they promised to make it for me. OMG!!!! The best ever. Mix it with strawberry on top or another fruit just... More
