We enjoyed this restaurant so much we visited it twice on our last trip Taorimna. The pasta dishes are particularly good. I would suggested that you book to get a table in the garden. Donot worry if the weather turns a bit wet as they have a roof which can be used to ensure dinners are nice an dry unlike... More

While looking downhill one of the small vailes off Via Umberto, we saw what looked like a pleasant looking restaurant. Mid way down this little street we were waylaid by two very loud and pushy waiters, who were trying to get us to eat at their restaurant which appeared quite full, cramped and hot. I pressed on to 'a Zammara... More

We really enjoyed our dinner here. All of our food was excellent and the soup out of this world! We were traveling with 3 children who can be pretty picky at times and even they really enjoyed their meal. The setting is absolutely beautiful as you are surrounded by orange trees and lots of soft lights. Beware, oranges DO fall... More

We recently visited A Zamara and it was a delightful experience. The ambience of the outside dining with the lights amongst the trees was magical. The food was first class and service was excellent. Certainly one of the best meals we had in our week in Taormina.

Having looked at other reviews we thought this would suit us. Not our cup of tea. Perhaps we made bad choices of dishes! Great staff food very average, pretty location!

This place was a huge disappointment. The worst meal we had in Taormina. Miserable service. I cannot believe how others can recommend. We will be passing this information back to Citalia who mistakenly still have this restaurant listed on their recommended list. Awful. Avoid- it does not reflect the general good food found in Taormina.

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
