The first time I went to Bam Bar in October 2012, I swore that I would never go back. The service was very poor. The lack of courtesy was blatent from the moment I stepped inside the place. Last week, I took 2 friends there hoping that after 2 years, it would be better. It was a mistake. The granite... More

Good selection of a welldone Granita. Its important that you also try this with the brioche. Try Pesca con panna.

I randomly found this place during my two day visit to Taormina. Knew about Granita but never tried it since I'm not a huge fan of slushy, icy things. But decided to give it a go and I'm so glad I did. The Granita was smooth and had a real and strong flavor, the cream on top was perfectly sweetened... More

Difficult to add something, this place has the best granite in town, combine with the fresh brioche and you have the best in class Sicilian breakfest

This granite isn't a icy water with artificial flavoring it's a pure cold drink and it's not icy. We stopped by on a Saturday at 3 and it was a refreshment that kept us alive from the heat of taromina. A must try place in taromina.

Bam bar serves the best granita any of us had every tasted! If they don't have the fruit to make a particular granita on the menu, they simply don't do it! No artificial substitutes! Lemon, peach, strawberry and raspberry. They're all delicious. (They also have delicious brioche and make an excellent cappuccino. Do make a detour. You won't be disappointed.

We stopped here for a quick refreshment during the day and were glad we did. The bar owner was very friendly, spoke good english and offered a great service. The granité was fabulous. The owner kindly gave my husband the moretti glass he was drinking out of as a souvenir when asked if we could buy it.

We were visiting friends in Belpasso/Catania and wanted to take a trip to Taormina to shop and eat. We stopped to get Granita because friends stated it was the best....and they were right. Amazing and great priced..good coffee and nice servers.

The granite was good, both the fruit and chocolate, though my wife thought the peach too sweet. Brioche was good, from the bakery across the road. Lovely outdoor tables in quiet road, and our waitress was friendly. Not earthshattering but fine for a rest after walking the Corso Umberto.

We have dreamed about returning to the Bam Bar for two years now & I am pleased to say it lived up to those dreams and maybe even surpassed them! Saro & his staff are wonderful, so patient & always smiling offering combination suggestions if you can't decide between the huge selection that's on offer. I have to confess there... More
