Nice tasty local restaurant outside the crowded places

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... read 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

We've been twice to this restaurant, but probably won't go again. Our meals were fantastic both times, but the wait staff seemed impatient with us for not being Italian. When we went for lunch today we were the only Americans there, and the waiters speak English, but chose to ignore us, and the service was quick for the Italian customers... More

We arrived without a reservation and the staff seemed very put out and stuck us in a table inside in the far corner, although most of the tables inside were empty. Everyone seemed to be waiting ages for food ordered - at least 30 minutes, except for one Italian couple who were obviously known by all the staff.Food was very... More

Something strange happened here. We have had a wonderful day and where recommended. The staff was not gentle to us, they did not want to prepare "pasta". That is really strange. After arguing a lot, the accepted. Suddenly the pólice came, sit in a table and asked for some papers. It was 9:30 pm. The owner/chef appeared, shouted to the... More

This is a restaurant that could be so much more, it has a lovely garden in a good location but the service went from friendly to inept so quickly and the food was average at best. While we can't prove it, it seems to suffer from an all too prevalent attitude that "tourists are a necessary evil that need to... More

Terrible terrible place. i can't stress how bad it is enough. Staff where arrogant to beyond belief, the wait makes you want to commit suicide! Literally! do not eat here unless you are a bored critic who wants to write an extremely long essay based on one of the worst dining experiences you will ever have.

Great friendly service, fantastic food, so tasty! This place was recommended by a local in Taormina. Need I say more! They have fresh fish on the menu daily, reasonable priced for Taormina. They have a great wine selection too. Cannot fault! Recommended!
