Amazing

We took a cooking class with Chef Massimo here and it was a wonderful experience. We went to market, made some nice pit stops at must try local places and then headed back to the Kitchen to cook. The food was amazing and we were able to replicate it at home. I will never forget this experience... read more

I and my friend feel very lucky to dine here during our stay in Taormina. The food was fantastic, with reasonable price. By dining here, you would also receive a small portion of soup and white wine for free. I am not a gourmet, so my opinion might contain bias, however, I strongly recommend you to come here and taste... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant for a special meal for my wife and I and I must say that it was truly superb! Staff very friendly. Great atmosphere. Food was outstanding. All four courses. Try the blue fin tuna! I highly recommend this restaurant

This is a lovely restaurant up the steps of a a very small side street in the cent re of the town. The food is typically Sicillian, of good quality with great combinations of tastes. The wine list is extensive with wines starting from 30 Euros. Overall a great experience with a 2 course meal plus wine costing around 80... More

Having asked the Concierge for a tyipical family run restruant, this was the second one he recommended (Da Lorenzo being the first). This one is off the main street up a tiny allyway. I had to almost turn sideways to go up it nut as soon as you are in the allyway it starts to widen out. A liitle way... More

We had the pleasure of dining here on our last night in Taormina. I wish we had discovered this restaurant earlier; we definitely would have returned. Maybe next time! With the exception of Vicolo Stretto, most restaurants offer almost identical menus. Here they offer the traditional menu for well, traditionalists, but if you want something fresh tasting, a little lighter... More

A very, very small alley leads you up the stairs to this restaurant and while taking another pair of stairs to the rooftop terrace overlooking the piazza and the bay of Gardini Naxos - you will enjoy a good Sicilian dinner with ditto wines, a nice table host and you also have a fabulous view! What else do you want?

This restaurant was recommended by a friend who has excellent taste in everything, including her Italian husband. She is also an outstanding cook having mastered the simplicity of regional cooking. So of course we were more than happy with Vicolo Stretto and went two days in a row for lunch! My husband went for classic tagliolini bolognese and it was... More

We took a cooking class at Vicolo Stretto. We first went to the market with the owner of the restaurant to pick out what we would cook. Then went back to the restaurant and cooked with the chef. It was great fun. Then we had a lovely lunch eating what we had cooked, accompanied by great wine. Everything was delicious.... More

Super food, excellent staff who couldn't do enough for their customers, lovely location tucked away up a very narrow flight of steps and with a view over the square from the terrace.
