Ended up here based on the 4 1/2 star rep advisor reviews however was disappointed. It is definitely a step up from standard tourist trattoria, but not up to par with 4 1/2 stars. Was seated outside ... which was very cold in November. My appetizer and main were brought out at the same time and they were cold before... More

The most dominant feeling: you are here for a few days, Mr. Tourist and unlikely you will come back so we do not have to take care of you. A very nice location but that's it.

Shame we didn't have more time to spend here. Was recommended this stop off by hotel in Panarea and well worth the rushed visit. Taormina was full to busting and we had to fight our way down the Main Street to find this tucked away restaurant. An oasis once we got there. We all had a different pasta dish each... More

We had seafood and veal there. However, veal is not great. We didnt know is a popular restaurant. We arrive there with quite empty customers. Service is good, but food there is very average. However, the desserts were not bad.

Not sure why all the "amazing" reviews, this is an average restaurant. The staff was very pleasant and friendly, the setting nice, but the food no better than average. The sphagetti vongole was in fact below average, the clams tasted as if they had been boiled in a separate pot and just tossed in afterwards. Blah.

This restaurant is one of the best in Taormina! I've been there many time and always the service and the food has been simply wonderful! The owner that is also the cook is a special guy called Felice. When you go there he will treat you as special guest serving the best food you can eat in Taormina and nearest... More

From the Trip Advisor reviews, I was expecting a little more from this place. It's serviceable but felt a little like a tourist trap with its slightly rickety chairs and the singer who popped in, sang two songs and then wanted a tip. The food wasn't bad, though we ordered a pistachio semifreddo which tasted overwhelmingly like almonds. No big... More

We were recommended this restaurant by friends but were somewhat disappointed. Lovely ambience but ordinary food; main course of scallopine al marsala certainly had plenty of marshland but tasted as if it was flung in at the last minute. Wine also very ordinary compared to what we had elsewhere. There are better places to eat!

We arrived at the restaurant an hour before it closed at 3pm. We were not aware of this and the waiter didn't tell us. The food was good and arrived quickly along with our drinks. We were then offered dessert at 2.45pm still unaware they were closing. We declined dessert and were told they were closing as the waitress put... More
