Good value

Good service, our food was alright but nothing special. If anything the lighting was harsh and detracted from the atmosphere if not very busy. Family run and very good value.

We've been coming to this restaurant for many years and always get the friendliest greeting and warm service throughout and the food is very good with decent prices on top of it. While Taormina is primarily a touristy town, this place offers a different experience even though it obviously attracts a significant tourist crowd...and that has to be due to... More

There are so many restaurants in Taormina to choose from, we just happened to choose this one as it was fairly close to our hotel and we were not disappointed. The staff are friendly and accommodating, the menu has a varied choice. The evening we ate at the Al Giardino we tried the beef filet and the veal both were... More

First night in Sicily and we couldn't have done better with our choice of restaurant. The food is very good and the service friendly and helpful. Really nice atmosphere and obviously used by locals. Good local red wine recommended by the waitress. Very good value and would certainly go back.

We ate here twice as the food was so good. The service was friendly and very efficient. It gets very popular so either book ahead or get there early. Highly recommended.

There are so many restaurants in Taormina, offering splendid dining experiences, that you don't have to search far to find one. On the last evening of my second visit to this lovely town we drifted around by the communal gardens and chanced upon the Al Giardino. What a lovely surprise this small restaurant turned out to be. As we weren't... More

Daniele and his family offered our group of friends a memorable experience of dining in a lovely setting and experiencing the best food ever. Daniele is a wonderful person and the food is first class. I do recommend al Giardino

This ristorante is just in front of the gates of the lovely public park and gardins in Taormina. We found the food average but the service very friendly. We both shared a bottle of house wine and a meat secondi and had our own pasta dishes for approximately €60. The portions are very generous however lack any wow factor.

Nine of us had dinner there and without exception the food was wonderful. Get there early if you don't want to be displaced by the locals or make a reservation. Quantity and quality was all first class. It's not a fine dining place. If you are looking for a romantic atmosphere it's not the place to go but if you... More
