A little road noise but the food and service were great. Lovely cool spot. It seemed very popular and some tables were booked. We had the beef fillet which was cooked as we requested and the melanzane parmeggiana was delicious.

We ate here several times during our stay, including the evening we got married, when they laid on a beautiful meal and provided flowers & wine at no charge. A family-run restaurant, the food is excellent, at a reasonable price and the service is first-rate.

The pasta here is first class, the Ravioli in particular was stunning. I would highly recommend the food. I will however score it down a mark based on the rather drab decor and ambience. Sitting at my table and looking at a stock room of boxes and consumables doesn't add much to the occasion, neither did the awful music. We... More

Taormina seems to have a restaurant on every street corner and to say one is spoilt for choice would be an understatement. We recently stayed for two weeks in Taormina and tried out a variety of restaurants, our choice usually based but not always on the apparent popularity of the restaurant. This can be a dangerous tactic as we found... More

This is a beautiful little family run restaurant next to the communal gardens. Great service and delicious food. Especially loved the home made pasta with swordfish and the tiramisu.

I ate here alone and then had to come back with my husband a couple of nights later. Was very impressed with the service- staff were friendly friendly and attentive. The food was exceptional. Highly recommend the seafood tagliatelle and the octopus and potato entree. We didn't book either time, except we went within half an hour of opening- I... More
