We were recommended BarBar for authentic granita and absolutely loved the granita here! A very authentic and old fashioned place with lots of charm. A must for granita when in Taormina.

Granita worlds first ice cream. Don’t miss Bambar during your stay in Taormina. Absolutely delicious. The owner creates the atmosphere.

If you visit, go here!! Strawberries and crème is a must. I tried many of their flavors. Berry fresh!

Wouldn't say it's a must see but it was pretty good. If you decide to go, don't worry if there's a wait. The employees are very efficient in getting people in and out, so just make sure you find the man with the list to...More
