Good food served at a tranquil yard terrace

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

We found this restaurant at the end of our holiday. The staff were very welcoming and worked very hard. The food and location were excellent, very relaxed with a calm atmosphere.

We came here on the basis they did gluten free pasta and because we had visited a couple of years ago too and enjoyed the place then too. Great family run restaurant with a nice courtyard. Quick efficient service in a relaxed atmosphere. Gluten free pasta was nice. I had a fillet steak which was well cooked and delicious with... More

We had our final meal in Sicily in Rosso Peperoncino, and it didn't disappoint. Lovely, garden setting, nice athmosphere, good, professional staff, tasty food, the mussels especially were delicious, best I've had. I'd happily recommend.

A very nice garden setting - food and service both to be recommended. Although set up for tourists we did on each visit notice there were local families also dining there - a recommendation by itself!

We found this place whilst looking for another but it looked a great setting and there appeared to be locals or regulars going in which was a good sign. The garden was very nice and the food was great. The aubergine parmesan and orange salad were a good way to start. I loved the simple fresh taste of the swordfish... More

Best fresh pasta on the trip, which was a shock in this major tourist area. We came on a recommendation from a local winemaker but became doubtful when we saw it in an ad on the hotel map. Proven wrong! Clearly family run and lovely little garden setting.

We stumbled upon this place after walking along Corso Umberto and taking a chance on a side street. The setting of this restaurant is beautiful, with a really nicely maintained garden that drew us in, and we didn't regret our choice. It's a little more expensive than some of the other options in Taormina, but it's really worth it. My... More
