We had great appetizers and the pasta was basic but real good. Not the cheapest restaurant in taormina but it was good! There was a guy who played live Spanish guitar. He also did request songs. The staff was really nice! Great ambiance.

What a joke. The only place in Italy I have ever been where they would dare to serve a salad, pasta course and meat course on the same plate!! AVOID! We have only ourselves to blame.

Common Sicilian food - good enough to get relaxed and enjoy - but at excessive prices - central position (Corso Umberto is the main Taormina street) so a highly "touristic" place and rates (usually >30/pers. not matter what) .

This is a very pricy restaurant which serves a barely decent food. I am Italian and the food is nothing better than any average Italian can cook at home in 10 minutes. The food is not tasting bad but it does not taste any special neither. Besides, the service is really poor and the prices are defenetely too high. Don't... More

We had a very enjoyable lunch (family of five with three teenagers) and an even better dinner experience. The guitarist at dinner made for an exceptional evening without the need for wine. After our first meal, I read and was surprised by the negative comments, but saw that some were written during low season when the restaurant might be understaffed.... More

During our week stay in Taormina, we had one lunch and two evening meals at this restaurant. We were warmly welcomed, given excellent service and helped with the menu when we explained we were vegetarians. The food was very good and we were lucky enough to be there when an excellent guitarist was playing - which created a lovely mood.... More

We ate at this restaurant twice. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We were there with several friends and they did not have any problem separating our checks. The fish dishes were the best of any restaurant in Taormina. The pasta dishes were also very good.

The food was pretty good, but my chicken involtini was under cooked - chicken in the center of the roll was partially raw. As with every restaurant in Italy, everything is ala carte. For three adults our LUNCH bill came to €77! (2 LG water, 3 cappuccino, 1prosciutto & melons,2 salads, 1 lasagna, 1 chicken involtini) Service was fantastic though!... More
