Perfect place

The waiters and managers know how to do their job, you do not need even to ask for the parmiggiano or the olive oil, it will be there when you need them. Pasta and Seafood are very good. Strongly recommended

This restaurant was advised to us but it was a dissapointment. The gambas were not fresh, the fish fillet in almond sauce was bland. The only thing worth while are the home made maccheroni alla Norma. The place is relatively expensive too. Nice little glass of almond wine with the coffee but that was not enough to make this worth... More

We stumbled upon this hidden gem by pure luck. The frutti di mare risotto and vitello involtino were our favorite dishes. We actually went back twice within a week to order this and plan on eating here at least once more. The staff is fun and friendly which makes this place that much better.

Because of the high recommendation we thought, this must be a good restaurant. Turned out, it's nothing special. We had to wait very long for our meals, that tasted boring. At least: very friendly service. But thats all! If you love good food, don't waste your money there.

We went here based on a lonely planet review, it was ok but nothing special. Good waiting staff, I think the menu could have had more choice as I chose risotto with parmesan in the end which was a bit overcooked but ok. It is ok if you want a mid range meal but nothing special or as amazing as... More

My wife and I had the nicest meal of our trip to Sicily here in July 2015. The restaurant is located in a nice little piazza down some steps just off the main corso. We had a reservation and were shown to our table immediately. The service through out the meal was excellent and the food was of a very... More

La Piazzetta was one of our favourite restaurants in Taormina. It is situated in a delightful garden courtyard on a pretty side street just off the main thoroughfare & surrounded by some of the towns most desirable bars. The greeting was welcoming & hearty from the charismatic owner & from other staff members, some of whom spoke little english but... More

What a fabulous restaurant. Good value as well as tasty authentic Sicilian food. Went a couple of times during our holiday. Unpretentious, family run and extremely professional. The blonde lady who appears to run the show is fab. You can tell that she takes great pride in everything she does. A warm welcome on both occasions. The rolled veal in... More

We wanted to try this restaurant based on other reviews and the lovely outdoor setting but did not have a reservation. The hostess was able to adjust the tables to comfortably fit our group of 4 in within 30 minutes. We are so glad to be able to dine at this restaurant. The Macaroni alla Norma was excellent and the... More

First of all this is a total family affair. They work so hard and the effort shows in the food they serve. The atmosphere is low key, casual, and a mix of locals and tourists. We were told to go here by our favorite waiter at the San Domenico. He said this is where he goes when he goes to... More
