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.

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.
