Headed straight back to this bar on our second visit to Taormina, a really great spot to watch the 'passeggiata' every evening. Pleased to see the friendly young woman we had met 3 years earlier was still there. Lovely interior decor remains thankfully unchanged. Great selection of drinks and some delicious pannini on offer. One evening we also checked out... More

I've been to Taormina 4 times and each time I've visited the Re di Bastoni, which never disappoints. Quality drinks, fresh Italian food and amenable staff. Lovely! I'll be back.

Great beers, great music (piped and live), very friendly staff who excuse outrageously poor Italian but who speak good English. Good place to start your evening and engage in people watching. A must do experience.

Found this bar whilst my partner was shopping and to be honest was glad to let her go and do her thing whilst I done mine! So imagine my joy when on main high street I discovered this quaint bar. Bar is well air conditioned if you want to cool off inside and Tarno (the owner?) was happy to chat... More

Went to this Bar several times during our holiday just to sit, have a drink and watch the world go by. Excellent choice of beer and drinks, and very helpful and attentive and pleasant staff. Just what was needed.

We fancied a break from the "fine dining" experiences offered by the other establishments on Cosa Umberto, hankering for some local delicacies and we found them! A great little bar with lovely friendly service, a good wine list and tasty food. We had the bruschetta and formaggio/salami dishes which were fresh and delicious washed down with a great local red.... More

Loved calling into this bar for an early evening drink - husband very happy with beer, me enjoying the Sicilian wine. The people-watching was fantastic, especially with so many weddings happening. We were fascinated by the parade of wedding parties up and down Corso Umberto.

Me and my friends stayed in Taormina for two nights and both nights we came here. On the Friday there was live music and very busy but Saturday was quieter. It is placed on the main Umberto and there is seating outside. The cocktails are strong! I was not happy with mine and the staff went out of their way... More

With so many bars and restaurants around we eventually found this little gem. We had a very enjoyable few hours people watching, drinking lovely wine and a different selection of nibbles followed by a delicious plate of local cheeses, meats and vegetables. The staff were very helpful and friendly we will defiantly need to find time to pop back before... More
