Several locals recommended Bam Bar for granitas and during our stay in Taormina we went an average of twice per day. Very creamy and flavorful in a very nice atmosphere and decor!

Loved this place for breakfast. Granite & Brioche yum. I wished we'd found it earlier so I could have had it more often.

Took us a while to find this place and so glad that we did, the granite is full of flavour and the added cream on the top is an extra special treat. Best granite we have tasted .

Best Granite of whole Sicilia, evan better at brekkie with some brioche, or just after diner for a light desert. Go from lemon, pistachos and nutella

Yum!!! Definitely requires a visit. Favourite combo. Coffee/Almond with Panna. They have many flavours freshly made at their premises every day. Bam Bar, a family business, has been around for a long time, visited by many famous people.

This place deserves its legendary status. Really intense rich granita flavours. My only regret is we did not discover sooner on in our trip. No bookings so try and go off hours as prime time you will need to wait, not that it matters as its great people watching and delightful atmosphere. Heavily decorated with tiles and paintings which are... More

Bam Bar serves the best granita we have ever tasted, so much so that we couldn't get enough of it during our holiday to Taormina. The waiters tell you what flavours they are serving on the day as they only serve flavours according to the fresh produce in stock and you can mix two flavours together. The granitas are the...

We started our trip to Sicily in Taormina and the best granite of our trip was here. It was like nothing else we found elsewhere. While much is written about the ice cream and granite in Noto, this was far better. Let the waiter tell you what flavors are available - they only serve what is fresh. A perfect place... More
