This was our third visit and this restaurant just keeps getting better. Both of our pasta starters were simply amazing...one with fresh tuna and one with lobster...both bursting with flavour. Our fish was perfectly cooked and the tiramisu was also very good! We will make It a point to always book this place whenever in Taormina!! Reservation is a must!

Friendly and experienced staff serve fantastic food in a relaxed and informal garden setting a few yards off the main drag. Definitely a cut above the identikit folksy trattorias and stuffy hotel-dining-room places. Excellent fish mains.

The proprietors at this restaurant stayed open for us when we wanted a late lunch. The food was delicious and they were very friendly. Scrumptious sounding specials were offered with some unique variations. I stuck with the spaghetti carbonara and was not disappointed. Off the main street, shaded courtyard dining. Very pleasant and not expensive.

We ate here 3 times in a week it was so good. It’s small and necessary to book. Tucked away near the Messina gate, it has a few tables in a courtyard enclosed within a hedge of climbing plants. The fish is very fresh and delicious, particularly the Carpaccio and Bonita. Try the Parmangianna aubergine cake. The service is friendly... More

Whilst the location is average, the food is just delicious.....above average service for taormina but always a low bill for the quality of food.....I used to go once a week when I lived here and was never disappointed....cant wait to get back to Tao and have the dish I cant remember with the saffron rice which is just divine........

We went there because our friends recommended this restaurant. We considered ourselves lucky to be given a table as it was packed and we didn't have a reservation ! How I wish they didn't accept us! We arrived there @ 9:15pm. As antipasti we had a platter of Sicilian specialities. Nothing special at all as we only had Parma hams,... More

Although the place was recommended to us by friends, our experience was very disappointing! We had to wait for almost two hours to get served and the food was not something really special!

Small and cozy restaurants with attentive staff who make you feel welcome. Food is delicious. Their homemade sesame bread, fresh pasta and fresh fish is worth waiting for.

It is simple place but very friendly. The food is the best in Taormina, trust me. Simone, the waiter, is really nice. His sugesttions are the best. He makes you feel at home. Please, go there!
