one possible method to improve your ranking is the do breakfast "Sicilian style" with coffee granita, cream and Sicilian brioche. Disgusting? try to taste it in BAM BAR in Taormina and let me know. This is the place.

Just off the main shopping street in Taormina and not far from the amphitheatre, this is a small cafe with the best granite in town. Try the hazelnut one if it's available - truly tasty and well priced. It is an expensive town, so it...More

The drinks here are great and the bar is really nice but the waiting staff were not very friendly. I'd hoped they would have explained the various options for the granita but instead the waiter seemed confused when l asked how it worked.

There's often a queue but give your name to the waiter & you'll be seated within 5-10 minutes at this wonderful temple to gelato. We had the pistachio & the hazelnut granita, amazing. They offer it with cream just in case it's not indulgent enough!...More
