“Yum! ”
Reviewed April 25, 2014 via mobile

Just around the corner from our apartment, this place was bustling when we arrived for our take out granita and bread. Delicious strawberry and chocolate with brioche (and a croissant for later) - well worth a visit.

“Busy and very friendly”
Reviewed April 13, 2014

The Bam Bar is located on one a square off Corso Umberto. Despite the slightly remote location the Bam Bar is a very busy place - this has to do with the friendly staff and the quality of the product offering.
The specialty of the house are sorbets. We even got some to try without ordering them - as we just wanted to sip on our Aperitif. Test them they are delicious as was our aperitif. It seemed that the Bam Bar is frequented by locals and tourists which gives me a good feeling in such a Tourist hot spot.

“The best granita in the whole world.”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

A must visit when in Taormina. Besides the absolute various delicacies they produce, the owners and their staff swarm constantly around their clients with a broad smile and their natural jovial Sicilian character. A very good chance to get granita addicted from here.

“The best granita ever!”
Reviewed April 6, 2014 via mobile

In Malta we are not used to taking granita for breakfast, and we sure enjoyed our treat! We were back a second time during our trip in Taormina!
