Worth the climb!

This restaurant is up the narrowest alley in Taormina. Having negotiated the tourists taking photos and reached the front door, there are more stairs to climb to reach your table. Having got there it was a pleasant setting with a typical Italian menu plus a few extras. The mussels were to die... read more

During a 2 week stay in Taormina we found Vicolo Stretto to be by far the best of the restaurants. The menu was more interesting, the food excellent and the servive very good. We would strongly recommend it

Our hotel recommended this restaurant and sometimes you can't believe your luck when everything is perfect. The friendly staff seated us at a window table on the covered roof garden with a view over the roof tops and town. The meal was exquisite, one of the best we've had in Sicily - and in Italy too. An complimentary warm soup... More

The staff were quite welcoming and we were given a nice table at the window. The courses we chose were 'ok' but the food was just placed in front of us without any explanation. Although we could not manage deserts, the waiter bought us 2 glass pots of a ricotta pudding which was nice and 2 small glasses of almond... More

Perhaps I am being too hard on Vicolo Stretto. The staff is friendly and professional. The outdoor seating on the upstairs balcony is lovely, and my wife liked her seafood. Perhaps I was foolish to order lamb in the land of awesome seafood, but I did, and I was disappointed. The waiter did not inquire how I would like my... More

This restaurant is up a very narrow staircase off Corso Umberto, you could easily walk past it. Although the tables are upstairs there is only one table by a window with any kind of view. Some tables were a bit too close together. The welcome was friendly enough and they give you a “free” glass of white wine to start... More

My partner and I went to the restaurant suggested by the hotel where we were staying (San Domenico Palace). As it was a suggestion from the hotel we were expecting to have a great experience. We arrived to the restaurant at 9:00 pm -to get to the restaurant there is a very charming narrow street. the restaurant is very minimalistic... More

We enjoyed a lovely evening at Vicolo Stretto with a delicious variety of Sicilian pasta and fish dishes, wonderful service, and a great table on the terrace.
