As previous reviews said, this place has the best granita in Taormina, and that is a fact. The taste was amazing and it was nice that it was open on the New Year's Day.

These guys are so friendly and welcoming! They serve great granite and cold beer on a quiet street just off the Corso Umberto. It is a fantastic sun trap at this time of year as well. Don’t tell them I told you but they’re great...More

We stopped here on a wet day in Taormina and were revived by the wonderful home-made granite (we tried lemon and the Nutella) and the delicious hot chocolate. Lovely, cozy surroundings and friendly staff.

It was the best granita we ever had! The owner and the staff are amazing and Taormina was our best stop in our tour in Italy! A true inspiration for lovers of the sweet! You re welcome to open a Bam Bar in Santorini!!!

We were really underwhelmed by our experience. The wait staff were beyond rude and the granita was overly sweet..couldn't finish it.

It may be hyped, sweet and unhealthy, but it really is delicious. A friend recommended that we try granita and brioche (albeit for breakfast), so we did so. There were many flavours to choose from; I actually mixed coffee with almond, and it was a...More

I've never had such a silky smooth granita. It was so good we decided to return for our second and final morning in Taormina. Our croissants were appropriately flaky and the cappuccinos well presented. The waiter remembered our order from the first day. I think...More
