Ate here three times in one week. Chanced on this restaurant because we couldn't get into the one we had pciked for the evening. What a result! Food was excellent. We sampled seafood pasta, chicken and steak dishes. The steak was a rare fillet and was done exactly as I had asked. The staff are really friendly. When we returned... More

This place is down some stairs off of the Corso Umberto a little way past the main piazza. The setting is lovely, a little secluded garden and the service was fantastic. We went twice during our stay for starters and mains and each dish was delicious. I'd recommend the bresaola starter and the lemon meatballs with the fresh cucumber and... More

Found this restaurant purely by chance - wandered around the town for something to eat- menu board was shown and it looked a bit ordinary but went down the 30 or so steps to a lovely garden restaurant - great food, good service from staff. My husband had the lamb shank as he was craving some meat after eating seafood... More

A lovely little place with very friendly staff. Relaxed atmosphere and very nice food. The carbonara is very good as is the gnocchi.

You should try the Caponata which is very nice at this restaurant. Definately sit outside, we aimed for one of the few tables on the higher grounds to sit a little away from the rest of the people. It's a nice typical sicilian place. Nothing fancy but good food at an average price. I could advise you to have dinner... More

The restaurant is set in a garden down a narrow street off the main Taormina thorougfare, which is always full of hustle and bustle. From the garden, all is tranquil. It menu is Sicilian and the restaurant has an extensive wine list. Great for a romantic night out or a larger group. Attentive but not over-bearing staff and delicious food.

Very friendly service, nice terrace in a quiet area just a street away from the busy shopping streets. We had pasta and the "catch of the day" (fish) accompanied with an excellent "vino rossato". Correct price.

I have been there with my whole family the Sunday after my brother's wedding in Taormina at the end of June. Chef Felice delivered an excellent experience of great Sicilian food. Really unforgettable (I am Italian but I live in Ireland...)! Cozy environment and friendly staff completed a wonderful experience. Highly recommended for food passionates.
