We've been twice and had wonderful dining experiences both evenings. The sea bass on a bed of fennel and spinach with blood orange flavor was outstanding. Their tuna seared and crusted with pistachio served with orange and sweet onion was exceptional. Greeted with a welcome sip of Prosecco a beautiful assortment of bread and an amuse buche, and farewelled with... More

My husband and I ate at this restaurant for lunch on our final day in Sicily. What a wonderful experience. We were warmly greeted and escorted upstairs to the restaurant where we sat out on the terrace of this beautiful space. We were the only customers at that time of the day but the owner made us feel very welcome... More

The welcome was second to none, greeted at door with a handshake and welcomed and taken upstairs - beautiful views!! We sat inside but if it was warmer outside was just lovely, with gorgeous views, inside still lovely. Staff were amazing!! Now, the food, I cannot say enough about it, it was excellent, the flavours amazing! We choose Sicilian dishes... More

A little difficult to find in a very small "stretto", but just 20 meters from the main street. A varied menue ,in the moderately price range. Execellent service, some small surprices -extras , topped this lunch. Nice view over the sea and neighbouring areas from a part of the restaurant .

the problems with service started as soon as we ordered. the waiter made absolutely no eye contact, going so far as to angle himself away from the table. i will begin by saying that the food deserved at least 4.5***** but the service dropped it to 4. we started with a shared plate of mussels with pepper that was plentiful...

We ate here on several nights while staying in Taormina. The food was always good and mercifully more adventurous than the usual fare. Service was excellent. When my husband left a wallet, containing a substantial amount of money, in the restaurant it was handed back intact the next day.

This delightfully hard to find restaurant has wonderful food - offering both traditional Sicilian dishes as well as modern interpretations. We enjoyed it so much we came back a second time. Depending on the day of the week it can be packed or empty - best to make reservations especially if you want to sit outside on their rooftop terrace.... More

Friendly staff serving up great modern Italian food in nice rooftop surroundings; this turned out to be the best meal of our trip! We ordered two courses each, and the staff surprised us by adding another three small dishes along the way. Add a welcome prossecco, a good bottle of wine, a surprise almond dessert wine with our coffees, and... More

We had a lovely special occasion dinner here with a beautiful table overlooking the church and the sea. Very romantic setting and superb food, beautifully presented. Vicolo Stretto has an extensive menu of both traditional Sicilian specialties and lovely fish and meat dishes, beautifully prepared. Delicious! Service was attentive and warm. Highly recommended for a special dinner in Taormina.
