A sunny lunch in Sicily

This restaurant is hidden away off the Main Street, and has a charm that is exclusive to this part of Sicily. The menu has lots of dishes to choose from, and the food is delicious. Obviously a favorite with the locals, given the number if Italian diners. Staff very friendly and welcoming... read more

Based on the review saw on tripadvisor, we booked a dinner in this restaurant. The place is beautiful and well located in the Taormina centre (few steps from Corso Umberto I, the main street). The meal is nothing really special... Let's say in the average. Prices are in the same range of other restaurants nearby, high compared to Sicily standards.... More

Me and my boyfriend had pasta here day ago. During our stay in the area of Taormina we had the opportunity to eat various types of pasta dishes. For our taste, this restautant offered pasta without personal touch and just generic sauces, hopefuly not from a can.

We had lunch in the terrace of this very nice restaurant during our recent trip to Sicily. The waitress was really kind and the food was a great surprise. The perfectly cooked pasta and the best gnocchi we've ever had were an amazing plus to our visit to Taormina. The restaurant is not on the main street, but just off... More

Nice service, tasty and delicious food. Under the roof terrace it is a little too hot. The best grilled swordfish I had so far.

Over a ten day period my family and me visited this restaurant twice. The food was very good and the service was okay. The only negative thing I would have to say is that they try to squeeze too many people around small tables, not give you any room.

Rosso pepperoncino was a great restaurant. It had an amazing setting and the food was great I had lasagne - it was yummy. My dad recommends Parmigiana and my mum recommends the seafood ravioli. Anyway the food was amazing. I loved it. I had an amazing night.

I had some dried ham for starters and a huge filled beef with gorgonzola sauce for main, which were both very tasty. The place is somewhat hidden in the smaller streets of Taormina, but got very crowded surprisingly soon at dinner time.

We dined in this restaurant twice. On both occasions the food was excellent and the staff attentive. There is a lovely relaxed atmosphere, it is an oasis of calm in a very busy little town. The pasta is excellent, the meats are cooked to perfection and the deserts are a delight. The wines we consumed were light on the palate... More
