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

Beautiful setting in a garden shaded by orange and lemon trees illuminated by little lights. The owner and staff very welcoming and relaxed and within a short time we found ourselves sipping wine in this beautiful setting and wishing we had found it sooner. The polpetta wrapped in lemon leaves are delicious and moist. The sesame coated pork medallions in... More

We had several meals out in Taormina, and wanted to go back to Zammara for our last dinner in Sicily. The owners and staff were easily welcoming and never intrusive. A junior waiter came and told us how England were doing against Italy in the World Cup: not of huge interest to me, but it is an example of the... More

for an upmarket tourist town there was a surprising lack of gluten free advertised. We found a great shop for supplies just outside the Messina gate. Luckily we also found Zamara a lovely traditional trattoria in a garden below Piazza IX Avril that has a completely gluten free menu - the only one of our two week trip, very unusual... More

We sat in the garden which was very romantic. Good service and reasonable prices. The prawns were lovely and the spaghetti with clams was also great.

The restaurant is set in the heart of the Via Umberto area of Taormina but you wouldn't realise it! an atmospheric, peaceful garden in the middle of the town. Food was delicious typically Italian,fresh pasta, fish, vegetables etc Staff were friendly, attentive and discreet. Slightly high prices due to central location.

We stumbled across A'Zammara when wondering around Taormina. It became our favourite restaurant during our 6 nights in the resort. The owner and the staff are very welcoming, the food is of excellent quality and the atmosphere particularly in the garden is a delight. Make sure you enjoy this restaurant during your visit, you will not be dissapointed.

Just had a lovely meal for two at A Zammara. We had filetto Gorgonzola and filetto Al Pepe both really nice and worth the 22 euros each. The Pinot Grigio was really good quality lovely setting, really nice staff, great atmosphere. Worth a visit, don't miss out!
