We visited Taormina on a day trip in early May, on a week day. Lots and lots of (other) tourists of course, but not so bad that they totally obscure Taormina's charm. And likewise, for lunch there are literally hundreds of places that cater mainly to tourists but if you walk just two hundred feet further north, you can find... More

Good service and a nice corner table. Food delicious and well presented. The steaks were cooked to perfection, medium, one plain grilled and one with pepper sauce.

This restaurant was recommended to us by our apartment owner, and after checking on TA we went one evening. I am surprised about some of the negative comments about service, as our waiter was great throughout, taking time to explain the dishes, and even making sure we'd discovered the tasty cheeks in the fish we ordered. The mixed antipasti we... More

Just back from a highly gastronomical trip to Taormina with a foodie other half, I'm puzzled by some of the negative reviews of this restaurant - we found it fantastic on a whole bundle of levels. On a trip which was very well researched and which took in 14 of Taormina's finest . . .l'Arche narrowly missed out on a... More

I'm late in writing this review. My wife and I ate here in May of 2014. We had previously ate there in October of 2012 and found the resturant at that time to be fantastic. We enjoyed it so much we decided to go back this year. Unfortunately this time around we were disappointed. The food was good not great... More

Outside the main street in Taormina, we enjoyed a tasty lunch, mainly pasta and fish. Just outside the old town but very near to the main streets. We did enjoy the lunch in a quiet place. Service was good. We were very few in the restaurant. The waiter did us recommended very well different dishes. We had also the possibility... More
