Best Pizza in Southern Italy

We vane here twice while honeymooning in Taormina, the pizza is fresh and the base is the best we had in all of Italy. The toppings are fresh and simple not overdone like many western pizzas can be, but the base really does remain the highlight and is what sets these pizzas apart from others. The... read more

I have never been to a restaurant where the staff were so rude. Pizza's were flow mg though very average at best. Stunning location let down by rude and unapologetic waitress and waiters.

Very nice location and great staff! You should ask for Gianluca!! He will suggest his favorite pizza which is not in the menu yet, but we hope to see it next time under the name of "Pizza Gianluca". Pesto, prosciutto, mushrooms ... I will not disclose more, just go to Villa Zuccaro and try it out! Best pizza we ever... More

Its worth getting off the main street, and go up the steps to This pizzeria! Very good service. Friendly and professional staff. Not only do they serve great pizza's, they also have great appetizers, and deserts. Good wine to! So all in all, a fair priced place, we recommend.

All in all a good experience, lots of choice and great tasting pizza!! A couple of the waiting staff were not the most joyful of people in the world which was a contrast to everyone else we had experienced in Taormina. However I think it was kind of calm before the storm, with the amount of tables I imagine the... More

We had dinner tonight. Just a pizza and bruschetta. The sped was awesome. Both writers were very willing and happy to please. The pizza like many before was the best in Sicily and the view was also as good as the food. Thank you.

This pizza restaurant was recommended by local people (who ate there) so we thought it would be good. Certainly the best pizzas we've had, huge selection and very reasonably priced. The setting of the restaurant was lovely and off the main street.

This pizzeria is recommended by locals as the best pizzas in town. Indeed the pizze were really good,originals and quite cheap! But won't give 4 stars as the atmosphere was not that cosy. We were in a really noisy room and the waiters were not so friendly. Its probably better in summer when you can sit outside. We were a... More

This was one of the best pizza's we've had on our roadtrip through Sicilly. With all the obvious tourist restaurants we didn't know how to pick a restaurant, thanks to Trip Advisor we came here and I would recommand this to everyone! Perfect and friendly service and perfect pizza! We had bad luck with the weather in March, but the... More
