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.

This is by far the best granita in town, but it is ver busy so be ore oared to queue at times and don't expect the waiters to be very patient and to take their time in explaining the different flavours. however if you're lucky enough to make it during a quiet time then you'll enjoy a delicious granita in...

I tried it once but I won't be back again as the waiter was too unpolite and rude. The place was crowded and noisy.

We popped in here for a granite having been recommended by our hotel. There were only a few of the many flavours on the menu available so we had a lemon and a strawberry .The taste was fantastic and we will definitely be back to try another!

Try this place for the latest cool food in Taormina. Granite as it's called is basically very similar to sorbet, made with fresh fruit, sugar and water it's worth a try as opposed to ice cream, I'm sure it's certainly healthier. I did however avoid the fruit types and went for a great combination of expresso and almond very nice
