We sort of stumbled across the Rosso Peperoncino whilst in Taormina, and stopped in for lunch. And I am so glad we did. We choose a plate of salted beef to share, and a glass of house wine. I have to say it was one of the best and most simplest of meals we had on our visit to Sicily.... More

Had a nice romantic dinner here with my boyfriend; we sat outside in their garden which is really pretty but moved inside later on in the evening cause it was a bit chilly and the interior is really homely. As an antipasto we shared the prawns with orange and salt which were really tasty and so fresh, then we had... More

This is a nice secluded restaurant with a romantic atmosphere. The food was very good and the service also. Overall we were impressed and would recommend this in the top five we ate at in Taormina.

This was our first visit to Taormina and although its a pretty place we were rather disappointed at how touristy and crowded it was. We strived to find a restaurant off the main drag and were delighted to chance upon Rosso Peperoncino. We were welcomed by delightful staff into a beautiful courtyard setting. We were brought a platter of fresh... More

Very relaxed atmosphere, nice music, central location, very quiet place, perfect for families with small children. Very helpful, nice and hard working staff. Food is absolutely delicious, typical sicilian dishes at reasonable prices. Parmigiana is to dye for :-) Try raw red shrimps, fresh and creamy taste. Definitely worths your time and money.

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
