Let down!

This restaurant promised a lot, but did not deliver! We ate here twice and although the staff were lovely the food was distinctly average and expensive compared with other Restaurants. On our second visit the Swordfish was cold and the chips were poor. When we addressed this with staff there was a... read more

Good position in the centre of town. Great food good choice of fish and the usual pastas - a tad overpriced, and no house wine or half bottles.

We enjoyed pizza and risotto with glasses of wine- while dodging a massive Sicilian thunderstorm. Pizza is quite light and very tasty- risotto very nice. The place was packed and service efficient and friendly - even when lightning hit nearby and blackout for 15 mins. Good option for meal and drink inside or out

This restaurant is located on Corso Umberto, the main street in Taormina with tables located just off the street so you are able to people watch but be back from the main hustle. Prices were mostly average but a little expensive for drinks. Pizzas seemed to be average price for the area. Unlike other restaurants in the area the staff... More

This is a busy restaurant on the Corso Umberto. It has the usual wide menu encompassing pasta, fish and meat. Service is quick and fairly efficient. Food acceptable but not brilliant. But the classical guitarist playing a broad selection of old pop tunes, including many Paul Simon numbers brightened up the whole evening. Not dear.

Having ordered the catch of the day our fish was presented as being for 2 persons - not mentioned at time of ordering.we rejected this approach and got a fish each. We would not... More

Had dinner here - calamari (chewy), seafood pasta, and fresh fish. It was decent, but not remarkable. There was a singer/guitarist who was very good - all in all a decent meal.

I stopped in this little restaurant for lunch one day. The service was excellent, the food was good and it was inexpensive.

OK - so it is probably a bit touristy, and the menu is geared towards visitors, but we ate here a couple of times and the food was good and the staff helpful. On both occasions live music was being played by a guitarist who was very good. The staff for people watching and enjoying the views of the wedding... More

By far not the best meal I have had but not the worst either. The restaurant is in the heart of town with indoor and outdoor seating. The food was good and reasonable for two with wine and water. Guitar player and singer very god and set a nice mood indeed.
