A fantastic experience

We have eaten here four times during our one-week stay and simply loved it! The staff is extremely service minded and the food simply amazing! We've had the best spaghetti "al nero" and various fish dishes all very well prepared. Definitely our favourite restaurant in Taormina. To be recommended!

Restaurant has a lovely little garden area, with a pair of really nice old olive trees. We were given the yummiest olives, garlic and sundried tomatoes we've ever had, as a little warm up. We then chose crab and vegetable ravioli and grouper & fennel risotto respecitively - both were utterly lovely. I also had local white wine, which was... More

One of the best restaurants in Sicily, the staff is extremely helpful to the extent that one of the waiters removed his car so I could park in front of the restaurant because I was travelling with young children. The food was divine. Over all a most pleasant experience I would recommend this restaurant to anyone very romantic and excellent... More

Very attentive staff, excellent seafood and meats. Well responded to food intolerance and special requests. Went ther twice since we came to Taormina we will definitely go there again. The atmosphere is wonderful, typically Sicilian and you can sit under huge olive trees in a beautiful garden.

This place was near our hotel, so after seeing the reviews we decided to go. Very few options that are not fish, even on pizza. Lasagne had obviously been microwaved and was a small portion. Bolognese was a decent size but watery and I think I could make better. They never asked if we wanted dessert, so we didn't bother.... More

Had dinner in the back garden. It was quiet and nice. My mum and I shared lobster linguine and stuffed sardines with a lovely glass of white wine. Food was excellent as well as a very professional service. I'd highly recommend this restaurant

I went there for a quick lunch, service was good, I couldn't eat in the garden because it started raining so I moved to the covered front terrace. I had the Crudita del giorno which consisted of various raw and marinated fish and seafood and a plate of sea urchins spaghettis
