Delicious Granitas - So good that we recommended them to friends and went twice. Had a very nice brioche there too. Ingredients are fresh and texture is perfect.

Rude waiter couldn’t be bothered to dry off a chair for us to sit outside. We were polite and patient but he was abrupt and clearly didn’t need or want our business.

A tiny shop serving Amazon Granitas in the heart of Taormina. Unlike other spots, here you can have it all-a fresh and fruity granita on top of creamy gelato. There are dozens of combinations but we opted for raspberry granita on top of white chocolate...gelato. You also have the option to add thick rich whipped cream (do it) on the top. All this for only 4€. Our group of 4 only ordered 2 to share but after a few bites ordered two more. Delicious and refreshing. It can be a bit of a wait for a table, just check in with a guy in an orange shirt and they will add your name to the list. Don’t just grab an open table. An older guy takes the orders (and collects cash when you are ready to pay-not sure if the take cards). Highly recommended FabulousMore

Massively hyped up. Nothing special about the taste of the granita. Customers treated like they are on a conveyor belt - all about how many they can churn.

Good granita, good brioche, but the rude service of one particular server left a sour taste in our mouth. This person seems to have an issue with all clients regardless of whether you are a tourist or local. We even heard him snapping with another...server in front of everyone. Unfortunately his attitude will make us look elsewhere as we will not be returning.More

I said “Hi” the very rude server response was “No inglese”/ no English and he walked away so did I! The place is nothing special just a regular cheap cafeteria

We are Americans. We were turned away from eating inside because they don’t accept American Covid vaccine cards. This is the only place in Italy including it’s government that did not take it. So I guess they don’t like Americans.

Very unpleasant staff. We had a reservation but they were not able to tell us when we will get the table. They don' t care about their guests.

The service was super friendly, the guy even made the effort to explain the menu in our languages. The Granita was so so so good that we had to go back there the day after. You can tell the granitas are made with fresh ingredients!...The decor, the service, the efficiency, everything at this place was enjoyable. We saw this place so many times on instagram and thought it was one of those overhyped places but we were happy to realise the place is indeed great! Highly recommend!More

Simply speaking, the Granite there is the best I've had and it made me stop eating it in my own country, because it's just bland compared to Bam Bar's. Great great place to eat it there any time.
