Been visiting for a number of years and always get a great welcome as well as good food and excellent drinks at very reasonable price. If you're very lucky you may catch the owner practicing the piano in the early evening. He's concert standard but very humble about his ability.

We stopped in for a beer while the rain passed and were impressed with the nice beers offered, and each in a different style of appropriate German glass/pilsner/goblet. The seating is a bit cramped but there was plenty of it! A good pub on a very busy tourist street. Still, you were never ignored. Nice.

Highly recommended for many reasons (in no particular order); friendly, personable & informative staff who are more than happy to spend time chatting and describing the local wines on offer, simple yet delicious, fresh food; perfect location for people watching (you can easily spend hours doing this!) and if you're really lucky the owner, the fabulous Tano will get on...

Quaint little tables and chairs inside and out on the Corso Umberto, Taormina. Snack type food which is tasty and delivered quickly.

I think most people wander in here for a beer, but it was also an inexpensive place to have a sandwich with the family while touring Taormina. Nicely decorated and attentive staff.

We only drank here, it is a little pricey for drinks but apparently the bellini is fantastic. Great place to sit and judge italians

If you're walking through Corso Umberto, want to eat great food and have a nice and charming staff then the best place in Corso is Re di Bastoni. It's staff is so friendly and they speak English. It has nice decor and great jazz music. If you want to chill, Re di Bastoni is a place to be!
