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

Try to get one of the 4 tables outside and you'll be sitting right on the main pedestrian street, the perfect place to do some people watching. They have all sorts of cocktails and local beers, and they did a great antipasti selection for us. Our waiter was extremely helpful and recommended some good places to eat that weren't tourist...

This is a great little pub/bar right in the middle of the Corso Umberto (Main Street). They have outside cafe tables and inside tables. Great atmosphere and play the best jazz outside of the US. We keep coming back every day for Bruschetta and cocktails. Great service and they have live music at night. Don't miss this little jewel!!

Enjoyed a craft Sicilian beer on the first evening and went back for the delicious bruschetta and antipasti the next day. Tried the Baladin beers which were excellent. Everything about this little bar has an air of authenticity in contrast to the obvious tourist bars.

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.
