My friend chose this restaurant for our final night in Taormina because of its 2 Michelin stars. We had a drink out in the cloister garden beforehand which was nice. Unfortunately we couldn't sit out for dinner (not sure why not) which meant we were in a small room with terrible lighting. Interestingly the one and only photo of the... More

Gorgeous food, service, setting and wine list. But expensive. The "oggi" menu is definitely worth it.

We had dinner here last night. Sadly, as rain was forecast, we could not eat on the terrace, but the entire experience was superb. We ate 4 courses a la carte and were given 4 freebies, plus a great variety of excellent breads, so certainly didn't come away hungry. All the food was not only beautifully cooked and presented but,... More

I am amazed at any negative comments about this wonderful restaurant. Of course it is going to be expensive-it earned 2 stars from Michelin. If the expense is an issue one should choose another option that suits your taste and pocketbook. Of course the portion sizes are not going to be that of a trattoria as the chef sends many... More

Had a wonderful anniversary evening here. It was everything we expected. Attentive service without being intrusive and without the haughty attitude that Michelin stars often breed. Come hungry , with an open mind to foods you have never tried before and let them guide you through the food and wine selections. Massive wine list, with many reasonably priced Sicilian wines...

We enjoyed our visit a lot, we had a terrace table with view over the ocean and Etna. Magical. The staff was indeed excellent and very experienced.Pls ask the sommelier for advice on local wines - he is great, enjoys that and you will be happy! We went for the 5 course menu, yes this is an expensive restaurant, but... More

When you book they take a note of your credit card number. The restaurant is a 2 (Michelin) star establishment in the Hotel San Domenico where we stopped for a drink first. It's all very 15 C. We had a beer - no point in over-egging a beer in a garden. The restaurant is quite small - it's also elegant... More

Since this is a 2-star restaurant, we had high expectations about the standard. Service was nice and friendly, attentive without being obtrusive and they didn't try to push us to buy more items more than they would in other Michelin restaurants. The sommelier was also very good and made excellent recommendations. We were sightly dissappointed that despite the fact that... More
