We turned up without reservation to this restaurant and were happily seated near the picture window with a view towards Etna. This is a small cosy but sophisticated restaurant with great attention to detail. Touches such as Amuse Bouche between courses were unexpected - and the black olive bread (black in colour too) was not to be missed. All using... More

My boyfriend and I went to this lovely restaurant on a Saturday night. The place was crowded but we managed to get a nice table overlooking the church. Delicious spaghetti alla Norma and wonderful desserts .... The main fish was a bit disappointing maybe because of the way it was cooked which the waiter did not explain to me before.... More

You should check out the Vicolo stretto when you're in Taormina, and reserve a table because it's very small. Definately ask to sit outside, and if possible get one of the tables on the side of the terrace, with view on the sea. The tables inside are not worth it. While the ambiente and price of the restaurant aim a... More

This restaurant is approached by the narrowest of alleys. When you arrive you are greeted by charming staff. We were impressed by the menu and the food. The terrace is lovely too. All in all a good experience.

Great service and wonderful meal, looking at a nice view in the terrace. The food is carefully prepared and the wine selection very good. In Viccolo Stretto we tasted the best canoli dessert in Sicily.

We arrived without reservation but we were confortably seated in their nice terrace. Food was very good, highlighting the entree seafood platter, several flavors perfectly combined. Service was also good. Few days after I went for a cooking class when I had more time with Massimo. His passion about food, Sicily and his restaurant is visceral. Great experience. We do... More

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...
