We have just spent four days in Taormina and we were lucky enough to stumble on this hidden gem, on our first day. It was so nice we returned for lunch on the last day. Their fresh fish was superb and everything about the place was utterly charming.

What can I say about Rosso Peperoncino that won't sound all gushy! Well, it is one of Taormina's hidden gems and during a 14 day stay is the only restaurant we went back to for a second time. Not because any of the others didn't merit a second visit, but because this restaurant offers something different. It is clearly a... More

We went here the night we arrived simply because it was closest. But it is very good. We sat outside, and enjoyed a very good meal. The waiter was keen to sell the fish of the day which all looked good but it wasn't for us. I had a seafood ravioli which was perfect.... And an antipasto plate for starters,... More

As with most restaurants on holiday we picked this place based on the menu. Located just off the main drag its a lovely open air venue with a great ambience - quite romantic. The shrimp gnocchi is delicious. We struggled not to gobble it down. The staff are friendly - especially the waiter with the cockney English accent - and... More

Ate here three times in one week. Chanced on this restaurant because we couldn't get into the one we had pciked for the evening. What a result! Food was excellent. We sampled seafood pasta, chicken and steak dishes. The steak was a rare fillet and was done exactly as I had asked. The staff are really friendly. When we returned... More

This place is down some stairs off of the Corso Umberto a little way past the main piazza. The setting is lovely, a little secluded garden and the service was fantastic. We went twice during our stay for starters and mains and each dish was delicious. I'd recommend the bresaola starter and the lemon meatballs with the fresh cucumber and... More

Found this restaurant purely by chance - wandered around the town for something to eat- menu board was shown and it looked a bit ordinary but went down the 30 or so steps to a lovely garden restaurant - great food, good service from staff. My husband had the lamb shank as he was craving some meat after eating seafood... More

A lovely little place with very friendly staff. Relaxed atmosphere and very nice food. The carbonara is very good as is the gnocchi.
