No Granita tastes like Bam Bar's

The place is located a bit off the Corso Umberto so depending when you want to go there, it will be relatively calm. The terrace is very beautiful with all the paintings on the wall. Last but not least, the GRANITA is one of the best you will ever eat. The service is very fast so you will not... read more

The Watermelon Granita was out of this world. The range of Gelato was mind blowing. I have never seen such a huge selection. The Staff were really great and so patient. Highly Recommended

Wasn't to sure what to expect as a granite to me sounded like a Slush Puppy form the 80's. How wrong was I? Man they were yummy! Not only that but the chap who served me , Saro if memory serves me correct, was very good and explained all the options to me. All the granites were freshly made daily... More

Hands down the best granite with bricohe in Taormina. Saro (the owner/ head waiter) is a legend as well.

Stopped here to shelter from the rain. Had a lovely coffee and was treated to a free lemon granita. Great decor and friendly staff.

Bam bar is just off Corso Umberto and is a must try when in town. Authentic granita with several flavours. They allow you to choose up with to two flavours. Great with or without whip cream!

For breakfast you get to choose from maybe 6 granita flavours, combining 2 is recommended such as coffee and almond or strawberry and lemon. After 2pm a much wider choice is available, including delicious kiwi and watermelon. We thought granita and brioche a bit odd but once you have tried it with the astoundingly fresh and light brioche there is... More

I've never experienced such a bad customer service. We had a 'pleasure' to deal with the owner who was vert impatient and rude. We didnt expect that at all after reading so many good reviews. Judging by his photos with celebrities he is probably in love with them and himself so he has no time for ordinary people. At some... More
