The best place in whole Taormina

Their granita with a new baked brioch is the most lovely thing I have ever tasted. I am still thinking of it even if it was over a year ago I went there.

Having walked around Taormina for several hours on a very hot day we were very glad we found Bam Bar with its extensive and innovative menu of granitas . Also serves granita in a bun. I had the peach granita which was truly yummy. My friend tried the coffee granita -- also delicious. Quirky decor, friendly staff and a super... More

This is a really nice café to sit and rest for a while. It serves the typical Sicilian breakfast: a flavored granité with a fresh bun. There is an outside terrace. The place is fully decorated with Sicilan ceramics and wall paintings adding an artistic touch to the atmosphere.

I am a granita fan and when I go to Taormina (one or twice a year), Bam Bar is on my list. Messina is well known for its Strawberry and Coffee granitas (granita alla fragola and granita al caffè). Bam Bar is incredibly good in all flavors they have. Try the peach or the watermellon ones and then you tell... More

This place was recommended to me by the couple of was sitting on the plane with me. It came with great recommendation and I was not disappointed. The granita was really excellent and I enjoyed every single spoonful of it. The idea of mixing two flavours never occured to me but I was really satisfied with the result. The price... More

With so many reviews about the granitas, we had to try them at least once during our stay. The Bam Bar is situated in a quieter part of town which is a lovely place to stop for an afternoon drink. Having seen the menu of about 30 flavours and struggling to decide, the waiter quickly made the decision easier as... More

Nice place to sit down to have a Granite in the sun. As you can see from the menu the tastes varies through the seasons. Unfortunatly the were missing quite a few of the tastes when we were there.

First day I went I wanted pistachio and they were out. So I got the hazelnut instead and it was really yummy. I also ordered the brioche and found it ordinary. Returned a few days later and they were out of pistachio and hazelnut. Of the 20 some odd flavors listed on the menu they only had 5. So I... More
