Overall we ate wonderfully well in Taormina - good thing we were only here for a week as there was too much damage being done to the waistline! With this in mind we struggled to decide on the venue for our last dinner as we didn't want to be left disappointed by a poor choice at the last minute. We... More

This restaurant has a small prettily lit garden, the food is unpretentious, flavoursome and authentically Sicilian, the homemade pasta has to be tasted to be believed

Beautiful setting under orange trees with fairy lights. Friendly efficient service. My wife had taglionini with big clams which was excellent. My macaroni with sardine and fennel was nice but would maybe have been nicer with fish whole? Had house red and white wine-another time may go for a bottle of red as house had strange after taste. My wife... More

We've eaten here dinner and we were lucky because they had made reservation for near all seats. We were sitting in their garden where atmosphere is very nice. Staff was ok but nothing special they try to do their job but there is nothing what they love. We ordered chicken breast in lemon sauce for our children because they didn't... More

Came here last night with my girlfriend for dinner, the restaurant is set in a gorgeous garden with lots of fairy lights that help to create a lovely ambiance. It's very romantic. The owner showed us to our table, I couldn't make my mind up about the wine so he recommended a local white wine from Mt Etna. We shared... More

We stumbled across 'A Zammara completely by accident, and are so pleased we did! It's just off the main drag through Taormina, in a small garden shaded by orange and lemon trees. The staff were very friendly, and incredibly helpful with the menu. We were in a group of four and everyone was delighted with everything they had......the fresh pasta... More

a beautiful little garden setting in the middle of Taormina, with all of the beautiful accoutrements that make you wish it was the little cafe right next door at home. Anything you order will be about as well-prepared and tasty as anything you've had and if you happen to order the pasta tono with oil and toasted breadcrumbs... it Will... More
