Lovely little cafe bar, great surrounding and most delicious granita, strawberry and orange with cream on top. So fruity and not too sweet. Also made amazing hot chocolate.

Stopped in one afternoon to try their granita abd I was not dissapointed, the waiter also recommended that I have a brioche with the ganita and he was 100% spot on. They have so many flavors to chose from but I stuck to the original...More

I got the strawberry granita with whipped cream and it tasted so awesome. The granita was fresh and not overly sweet and paired perfectly with the cream. Wish I could’ve tried more flavors since rhey had a pretty good variety.

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 welcomed by the staff here and we were advised that they 'only' serve granita which is their main speciality. Not that I am a big fan but their granita is a must - offered in different favours - all top notch! Recommended.
