We were pleasantly surprised, we were welcomed and were given lovely table for our evening meal, We were then given a complementary glass of local white wine, a tasting of home made vegetable soup which was delicious. My wife had the clams which are one of her favourite dishes and were to die for,I had the octopus which was also... More

Most of the restaurants in Taomina offer pretty much the same fare-pizza, pasta,Sicilian/Italian classics. In the Michilin recommended( not starred) restaurant the cooking is more imaginative and newer. I had grouper with aubergine and potatoes served on a bed of fennel sauce. My wife has cod in tempura batter with chickpea sauce. The fish on both dishes was perfectly cooked... More

We ate here with our 2 teenage children. The food was very tasty and different without being pretentious . If you don't order a starter or dessert you get a small complimentary bowl of soup or mini dessert and a free taste of Amond wine, which tastes like liquid Bakewell Tart! The service was very good. This was the best... More

Food not so great but never experienced so bad and rude service and in fact very unorganised and nothing really worked not even the heating. Perhaps the third team on duty.

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. The Chef is... 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

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
