Vicolo Stretto is an amazing restaurant, unforgettable. We approach to the local by a small street, "stretto", like talked the local people. A kindly team will receive you and your friends. After this, they will prepare good surprises. A glass of white wine, out of courtesy. A small and delicious soup. That's only the begining. I eat delicious lamb. And... More

Great service. Unbelievable pakkeri (sp), great service, perfect - no less, no more. Sit out on a cosy balcony, feel welcome. Enjoy the delicate food cooked by the young chef. We were in Taormina for 6 nights and went there twice

The menu is varied and the terrace provides a quaint environment over Taormina. Going up the narrow steps to the restaurant is an experience in itself. Service was very good. Look out for the specials prices and they do add service and cover charge! Cannot complain except the prices are inflated even compared to other restaurants in the vicinity!

The restaurant is up a flight of very narrow stairs and has lovely views over the church of San Guiseppe towards Etna. The staff gave us a friendly greeting and we had a lovely table out on the terrace. We were given a glass of prosecco and a good range of breads and olive oil.All the food was beautifully cooked...

After a walk up the narrow stairs we were greeted by the staff and showed to our table, which was one of the tables with a view of the piazza. We were given a glass of prosecco each (although we did have to pay a cover charge for this). The four of us each had three courses that we thoroughly... More

We traveled from Palermo, Sciacca, Siracusa, to Taormina and had wonderful meals. But our meal tonight at Vicolo Stretto was one of the best with amazing service too. We were greeted with a small glass of Prosecco, a basket of bread that was by far the best we ate, a taste of vegetable broth from the chef, our delicious meal... More

I chose this restaurant based on tripadvisor reviews and have to admit, it was a mistake. I work in gastronomy and part of my job is writing and visiting top fine dining restaurants in Prague, so I think I am able to judge quality of food and service. This restaurant presents itself as high-end and the prices surely are. Setting... More

Main course ranges from 28-38 EUR. We got the daily special fish - grouper which came out to be 60 EUR for the plate! It was overlooked and served in its fillet so not bigger than anything else on the menu. Staff says it's charged by the grams and it's 800 grams. Right... Don't you think they could have warned...

After climbing a very narrow staircase, we found a nice indoor eating place. We were then taken up another flight of stairs to outdoor seating where we were seated, with a glorious view of a nearby church.The food and service were perfect. This place deserves a much higher rating on Trip Advisor.

Roof terrace with views for those on tables in the corner otherwise limited. The food was quite good and well presented - in particular the parmagiana tasted great and their tuna/orange was also very nice. What let this place down was the manager. We had booked a table during the day and were told there was a 19.30 sitting and... More
