Good honest Italian fare

Great dined at this lovely restaurant. The setting in the garden is lovely. The pasta was the standout for us ...esp the ravioli! Great wine and dessert options too. Highly recommended

Came to the restaurant with my wife n my son.. We received a warm welcome from the staff. The guy's who work out side are very friendly... We started with a starter parmigiana with sword fish that's outstanding.. my wife too loved it.. For first plate we went for ravioli with shrimps sauce. For second tuna fish with marinated onions....

I am very unhappy that my partner chose this place to eat. There were no other customers eating here which was a bad sign to start with. I had the mussels that were supposed to be in a spice sauce but they came with no sauce, some of the larger mussles I thought weren't cooked. The wine was terrible, tasted... More

Visited on 10 June in the evening at 9ish on spec. unsure if we would get a table but the restaurant was disconcertingly empty. Perhaps this was down to the side street location or the enclosed patio setting. It turned out that even at 9ish we were 'British early' - the restaurant filled up later with Italian and visitor diners.... More

Stayed in Taormina for a week and was so impressed with the food and service we visited this restaurant twice for our evening meal. Good food, lovely salad and wine and not expensive. Just off the main thoroughfare at the Duomo end of town, takes a bit of finding but well worth the effort.

It's a nice place to eat, very beautiful. But - My friend's plate was snatched away from him while he still had food in his mouth. When the guys sitting in the terrace left, lights were switched off, music stopped and waitress talked on the phone for 15min, thus no bill for ages. The food was very good though!

In a hidden street away from the busy main road, Rosso Peperoncino is an excellent way to spend the evening. The food is great, the service even better and the night was enhanced by the appearance of local singers. I would definately reccomend this restaurant.
