They have the best granitas and they know it! As soon as I walked in the guy saw my face and said: ok, we have lemon, orange, mandarine... N.B. The make them with fresh fruits of the season only which is why they are delicious.

Fun place to visit and enjoy the divine granitas. The owner was very amicable and made us laugh. They have pictures of many famous people who have been at the Bam Bar. My hubbie ordered the lemon raspberry granita and I ordered the nutella. The best granita we have ever tasted. DIVINE!!!! Loved this place.

Try Bam Bar for a fantastic range of ice creams and granitas. Loved the regular 'princess' seated at the next table with her pearl necklace!

We had never had granita prior to our trip to Sicily, but we are now converts. Bam Bar and Cafe Sicily in Noto were our favorites of the trip. Bam Bar did something that the place in Noto didn't. A few flavors at Bam Bar are made with some milk, which gives them a more ice cream like consistency. That... More
