This fabulous little bar became our local while we were in Taormina. Things that might be useful to you. 1. The Bruschetta is to die for. Unfortunately the owner didn't share her secret recipe, but they were so adorable, we kept going back for more. 2. In more formal restaurants in Sicily, you have to eat two courses for your... More

We had lunch at this little place on Corso Umberto in Taormina. Much more reasonably priced than many places in this beautiful but touristy town. The mixed bruschetta I can particularly recommend. The waiters, all wearing tee shirts from either Tarot cards or Alice in wonderland (not sure which), were cheerful and efficient, and we enjoyed the whole experience.

Emphasis on Sicilian. A great place for substantial snacks, such as bruschettas and sandwiches. All ingredients are sourced locally and are chosen for freshness and high quality. Beverages are reasonably priced. Service is cheerful and helpful.

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.

Favourite bar in Taormina that became like our local on our 10 day trip. Gorgeous little place done out in a quirky homely way inside, or seats outside to watch the craziness of Corso Umberto. Excellent selection of drinks and good simple food for lunch or a relaxed dinner. Friendly and professional staff headed up by an amazing couple -... More

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.
