A friend recommended this place for its granita. Had i not tasted the granita at C&G i might have agreed. However, the best granita definitely goes to C&G. This one is not too bad but very sweet and a little too syrupy

We were very pleased to find this cafe near where we stayed in Taormina. Delicious coffees and pastries for breakfast to enjoy while sitting outside. Very good service.

Our guide from Taormina told us we had to come here for granita but warned us it would be busy no matter when we went because it is so popular. She advised us to have the coffee granita served with heavy (whipped) cream and it...More

Bam Bar is the place to go in Taormina for granita. They offer several flavors depending on what fruit is in season and make sure you get the cream topping! Service is good and they have a nice outdoor seating area. We went there several...More
