Simply the best granitas in Sicily if not the whole of Italy! Wonderfully prepared and bursting full of flavours! Delicioso!!

If you go to Sicily, you have to taste a granita... And if you happened to be in Taormina, you need to have one at this bar. It is the best granita I have ever had, you can really taste the fresh fruit... Many VIPs go there and apparently, at late night, after the shows at the Ancient theatre of... More

Don't bother trying the granite anywhere else....this is the best in Taormina hands down!! We went here almost every night for dessert and could have easily had it for breakfast too. The nutella is amazing as is the yoghurt, pistachio, hazelnut....the list goes on. Nice setting for people watching too!

After we got a little tired of the heavy hotel breakfast, we decided to try Bam Bar for Granita. I think we visited Bam Bar seven times during our stay in Taormina. Delicious!

We were told to try the granitas at the Bam Bar, and it was a good recommendation! Absolutely delicious! They also sell beer by the bottle and the Wi-Fi is great. Worth a visit!

I had been told to try the coffee granita with cream on top with a brioche for breakfast and the lady who owned the apartment I stayed in recommended this place. As a local herself I thought it was best I try it out and wasn't disappointed. The coffee granita with cream was very tasty an came out very quickly.... More

Had the peach/lemon and cream granite, really tasted like fresh fruit, not fake taste, really really good. Had the chocolate one too and was yummy. Service was really good, nice little place too, highly recommend to stop there!

This was a very busy little bar but we were lucky enough to get a seat inside. The granita were full of flavour and the brioche delicious!

We just happened upon Bam Bar. And it was very pleasant. The staff was friendly and helpful. We even got a sample of the granita for free. I recommend a visit if you are in Taormina.
