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

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 went to this restaurant on the recommendation of our hotel. We had an excellent table on the very small open air terrace with a view over rooftops and church towers. The service was very efficient save for one thing which is that they got my order for mains wrong. This left me somewhat out of sync with my dining... More

We really enjoyed this restaurant. Having negotiated the narrow passage and steep stairs from Taormina's main street, you are still in for climb when you get inside the restaurant, but once upstairs, the room has a fresh, light and elegant feel, worthy of its listing in Michelin. However, what really matters is the food and it is here cooked very... More

Tucked away up a very narrow passageway close to Piazza IX Aprile, the restaurant (and wine bar) Vicolo Stretto is easy to miss. Make the effort to find it though, and you will be rewarded with wonderful food - especially the seafood - friendly service, and a great view of Mt. Etna.

We ventured up the narrow street of Vicolo Stretto to a lovely restaurant and were seated on the terrace overlooking the Duomo square. Every portion (including the two surprise amuse bouches) was superb. The Sicilian salad was exquisite as was the Pasta Vogole. The price was quite reasonable and the service was outstanding.

nice location, personnel very friendly and kind however service is a little bit rushed. Food is average for a tourist location like Taormina. Surely in Taormina you can eat worse but surely also better. They tried some complicated dishes but they substantially failed. A suggestion: KISS ......KEEP IT SIMPLE!!!
