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.

Lovely garden setting - an 'oasis' in a town setting. The food was delicious and the service excellent. Highly recommended.

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.
