Restaurant didn't keep our table after 13 minutes from time the booking was made! No sincere excuse. Attitude of the owner not sincere. A place to be avoided some bad surprise!

Small and intimate place, very friendly and classic, excellently presented Sicilian food. Not haute cuisine, but interesting and very well done.

Our soup to start was delicious. We had three mains. The tuna was really good. The lamb chops were also well cooked. The slow cooked lamb shank whilst in a good sauce, was over cooked with parts of it hard - not really bad, but disappointing. We enjoyed the chocolate cake, and pannacotta desert both of which were delicious. Service... More

you approach the restaurant which is on the first floor through the narrowest of turnings you're ever likely to come across. it's worth the squeeze.............good food and wine, good staff and a nice feeling about the place

This restaurant is up the narrowest alley in Taormina. Having negotiated the tourists taking photos and reached the front door, there are more stairs to climb to reach your table. Having got there it was a pleasant setting with a typical Italian menu plus a few extras. The mussels were to die for but the lamb wasn't to my liking.... More

During a 2 week stay in Taormina we found Vicolo Stretto to be by far the best of the restaurants. The menu was more interesting, the food excellent and the servive very good. We would strongly recommend it

Our hotel recommended this restaurant and sometimes you can't believe your luck when everything is perfect. The friendly staff seated us at a window table on the covered roof garden with a view over the roof tops and town. The meal was exquisite, one of the best we've had in Sicily - and in Italy too. An complimentary warm soup... More

The staff were quite welcoming and we were given a nice table at the window. The courses we chose were 'ok' but the food was just placed in front of us without any explanation. Although we could not manage deserts, the waiter bought us 2 glass pots of a ricotta pudding which was nice and 2 small glasses of almond... More

Perhaps I am being too hard on Vicolo Stretto. The staff is friendly and professional. The outdoor seating on the upstairs balcony is lovely, and my wife liked her seafood. Perhaps I was foolish to order lamb in the land of awesome seafood, but I did, and I was disappointed. The waiter did not inquire how I would like my... More
