Good family run restaurant

This restaurant was recommended to us by several people so we gave it a try midweek. We hadn't booked and had to wait a few minutes for a table. It was worth the wait as the pasta dishes were very good. We had a bottle of house wine which was also very good for the price. The restaurant is family... read more

Excellent and friendly service. Gorgonzola ravioli was delicious and the tiramisu was to die for. Would definitely recommend this restaurant. Nice selection for all tastes. Will customize your order on request.

Really wasn't impressed by this place. Went here due to the amazing reviews and couldn't have been further from the truth in our opinion. Both of our pasta dishes had so much dill in them that it would be unfair to call them pasta dishes. Sorry Al Giardino, not for us.

This wonderful, sunny and light restaurant is run by Daniel and his family (his mama makes the Tiramisu - divine). The food and service both reflect a love of people and wonderful ingredients, and it lives up to the hype from the locals of Taormina. Just next to the gardens under the Greek Theatre, this restaurant is wonderful.

Wonderful staff, great atmosphere and tasty food. Really enjoyed it and so glad Mauro from the hotel Astoria recommended it. Can't believe it's not rated more highly. It was packed both nights we were there with people enjoying themselves and the friendly owner was suggesting that those unlucky in finding a table free could, if they wanted, wait at the... More

We are a couple who do not generally eat at the same restaurant twice however, the choice, was wonderful for starters, main and dessert. This said my husband actually... More

The food was adequate, but nothing special. There was no real atmosphere inside and the service was lacklustre. There are many better places in Taormina
