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...

Loved this place!!! From the COLD draft selection of international beers, the excellent and reasonably priced Sicilian house wines, to the absolutely best panini's, sandwiches, and salads on the Corso. The friendliest waitress in all of Taormina - her British accent welcoming and comforting to this non-Italian speaker - giving me a respite from my translator app! Our "go to"... More

I have lived im Taormina and been back there countless times. I love the beautiful history of this town and regret so much the invasion of all these awful pubs and the destruction of what was once an elegant town. The woman who serves customers is a silly simpering British person who hasn't even had the grace to learn to... More

This small bar on the main street in Taormina is a delight to visit. The place is decorated lovely, you are right in the center of things and the staff are extremely pleasant and welcoming. We spent many evenings here and we treated with service and a big welcome during every visit. The staff were happy for us to make... More

This is listed under nightlife and we can't comment on that but it's a good place for a very cold beer, some good wine and excellent panini around lunchtime. It's an easy place to relax and we went there a couple of times – good value too given it's on the Corso Umberto. Nice easy bar with excellent service.
