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!

This place is simply great, wander down the Corsa Umberto and stop off at this wonderful little bar. Look out for the brightly coloured furniture under the lovely glass canopy take a seat order beer and bruschetta and watch the world (and the people go by) it doesn't get much better than this.

We visited Taormina on our honeymoon and found this fabulous little bar on our first night. What a fantastic little bar! We felt so welcome by the owner Tano and his partner Lin and excellent staff including Manuel and sara, they do gorgeous food, great beer and the best mojito's and frozen strawberry daiquiri's and margarita's I have ever tasted!...

Very relaxing little bar with very friendly staff. Wether it's pre or post dinner drinks you'll get what you want in a tavern style relaxing bar. The jazz music softly playing is relaxing and we went back 3 or 4times (our most frequented place) worth a visit

very colorful and antique furniture and tasteful furnishings reminiscent of the famous Sicilian cards, piano and soft lighting create a very welcoming atmosphere. The background music is never high and it is a great place to grab a beer in relaxation :)

We were walking down the street pondering where to have a snack and saw a gentleman in this pub having what looked like great bruschetta. We ordered a couple beers and two different kinds of bruschetta. It was fantastic. We wanted to go back later to try their other menu items but didn't make it. Definitely add this as a... More

We were on our way home after dinner, passed by this bar and had to go in! The relaxed-yet-energetic vibe, romantic lighting, and decor (paintings on the walls, colors) drew us in. What kept us there though was the piano/base duo. They improvised and had us hypnotized with their amazing music. Thanks for the beautiful evening and stopping us on... More

This has to be one of our favourite pubs in Taormina, such character and plenty of attention to detail. The food is excellent, We went almost every day for their wonderful salads and probably the best bruschetta in town, The waitress is a lovely English lady who is very helpful and gave us a lot of tips about where to...
