There are a lot tourist traps in Thaormia, but this is the real deal. For example, glass of Prosecco, €3, compared with €6 in piazza duomo. The granite was delicious, services was chearful and you can watch the world go by.

You cannot visit Taormina without having a Granita at this folkloristic place situated at 2 min from Corso Umberto! Simplicity at it's best! Only seasonal products for the best and REAL granita! This is not broken ice.......is GRANITA! Try the caffe' con panna (sotto e sopra) and deep a warm brioche while enjoying the refreshing mix of warm & cold!... More

This is a place for several visits during your stay in Taormina. First experience the morning grainte with brioche, then the late morning granite with a second granite to follow in different flavours (the melon and lemon granites in one glass are magnificent), a post-lunch-time granite is the best prelude to an evening granite or two, a glass of Aperol...

Granite are fab. Service is polite. Definitely treat tourists like tourists, but worth it for the granite and free wi-fi. :-)

Granita is one of the typical Sicilian specialities..... and Bam Bar in Taormina offers the excellent ones... The owner Saro welcomes you and explains the several tastes of his granitas in so many different languages....

Everything is in the title - the Granita is really amazing. I had the Noccella with cream - pure happiness moment! Also - they have wifi (quite handy as not so common in Taormina). Perfect place for a stop over a delicious granita while researching your next travel plan

This small granite bar off the main corso in tourist-ridden Taormina has a fast turn-over, so getting a table is not hard. You can choose to sit outside or inside. The passing hordes of tourists are always an entertainment. Wherever you sit, the granite is wonderful. Easily the best we tasted in 2.5 weeks touring around Sicily. The coffee was... More

Tasted the best true granita in Sicily which is frozen fruit and not ice with aroma and flavors added that most other shops serve
