Great dinner experience

We had dinner here and would definitely recommend this restaurant to all visitors in Taormina. Will definitely go back if we ever return to Sicily (hope so!). Food was delicious and service pleasant.

We visited this restaurant initially in December 2013 and had several excellent meals here. We were in Taormina again in December 2014 and returned to this restaurant. If you are looking for a restaurant that is very inviting with excellent food, this is an excellent choice. The local seafood and fish are exceptional and based on availability. I ordered the...

Down stone steps between two buildings off the main thoroughfare in Taormina is Rosso Peperoncino, a lovely restaurant with a beautiful courtyard and bright yellow and blue decor in the restaurant itself. The place is inviting, warm and welcoming. We ended up at Rosso Peperoncino by chance and went back three times before leaving Taormina. The pasta was excellent, the... More

A wonderful family run restaurant. Exquisite food - best pasta I have ever eaten, wonderfully cooked fresh fish/seafood and salads to die for. Reasonably priced and fantastic service. What more could you ask for!! Make sure you find this place if you are staying in Taormina - you won't regret it!

Family-run restaurant serving delicious sicilian cuisine. Located off Course Umberto within easy access of all hotels but serving authentic non-tourist dishes. Well done to the chef also owner of Rosso Peperoncino, his sister and mother for their attention and care towards their customers. We shall definitely return our our next visit and recommend you to our friends. Bravi!

We were so pleased to find this marvellous garden restaurant down the usual narrow street at the back of the Duomo. Good food and house wine at 7 euros for 1/2 litre. Taormina was far too crowded for our taste and it was a relief to find this pretty garden with plenty of space between tables for our first evening... More

Ate here on our first night in Taormina...and this set the standard for the rest of the week. Lovely hidden courtyard, great staff and wonderful food. Spaghetti carbonara the best ever. Local wine very good and a very reasonble price...plan on going back before we leave. A must when you visit Taormina.

Service was good, if a bit disinterested. Food was EXCELLENT. Not ridiculous, but not unaffordable. The shrimps in orange salt were wonderful, as was the pistachio lava cake.
