Best meal we had in Taormina

Our family of four visited this restaurant on the recommendation of Chef Massisimo who we had done a cookery class with a few days before. I was delighted with our dinner. We started off sharing a couple of starters - Tuna Carpaccio and eggplant Parmiggiano. I have never had such fresh tuna, and... read more

This was one of our best meals in Taormina. Their speciality is a 'raw fish' sharing platter with tuna carpaccio and similar. Despite the lack of views it has a pleasant outside seating area which is sheltered if the weather is not so good (no such problems on our visit!) The service and food are both excellent without being overpriced.... More

We've visited taormina 5 times already. This restaurant is one of our favourites in the city. The staff is wonderful,the food is amazing. Last night I had marinated salmon and grilled sea bass with steamed veggies. My husband had marinated anchovies followed by spaghetti vongole and half of my sea bass. The food is fresh, very well prepared and just... More

My partner and I along with a few friends had dinner here on first night in Taormina and I was blown away with the place. Starter was a mixed platter of fresh marinated sea food called "delizie di pesce " followed by "Involtini de pesce spada " rolled swordfish. I genuinely could not fault this amazing dish and every thing... More

This is one of our favourite restaurants in Taormina. The staff always remember us and make us so welcome. It is so popular you should make a booking if possible. Although it is on a very busy little street, the high hedges around the garden tables, together with the overhead canopies (and good wines) the outside noise is not noticeable!... More

Excellent seafood (spouse enjoyed the grilled seafood mix), friendly service,not filled with tourists, recommended by local person. Just barely outside the city walls. Better inside the restaurant than outside because of the traffic (my spouse is alergic to fumes) and smoking. We had a table near a window opening on the side away from the street. Great evening.

This was where we had the best food in Taormina. It is a hidden gem and did not get to try it until the last night there. The Linguine Alle Vongole Veraci was flavourful with every bite. I asked for chilli flakes and was surprised with freshly chopped fresh chillies which enhanced the dish even more. The Fillet of Beef... More

Restaurants in Taormina have been average at best. But this is the bottom of the ladder. Service perfunctory, food barely edible and the clams in one diner's pasta were off. My fish soup was a failure in cooking 101. MacDonalds are looking good.

The maguro carpaccio was out of this world and at that price, it's a steal. The riccio di mare pasta was simple and delicious. I just wished that there was a little more riccio. This place is a gem.

Need to go just a bit outside the walls to find this place. Staff very friendly and efficient. All of our courses( which included pasta and or seafood of some type) were very good
