We had a great little lunch on the patio by the fire during a downpour. Good food, wonderfully hospitable people. Worth a go if you're looking for a good lunch place - the salads and spinach dishes were awesome and super fresh.

Been to several good restaurants here in Taormina so far. This was by far the worst. Cold food, not even cooked properly. Stay away !

Everything was ok but the service. looked impressive at first with the waitress using a tablet to take orders. From then on, it didn't make sense anymore. Starters were served with the main plates and one person in our party of four got his plate after we had all finished ours... Would not recommend unless they improve on service.

If you want to be served by a smelly waiter and eat mediocre food, this tourist trap is the place to go. We went there as it was recommended by our travel guide but the food was so bad (both esthetically and taste wise) that we decided to leave. When we complained to the owner/manager, not only was he not... More

We were attracted to this restaurant, mainly because they had a guy with a guitar providing music! We were happy enough with our dishes, and I found the baked Bream to be very tasty. The music (and the wine), definitely coloured our opinion, as we found ourselves singing along in Italian, despite the fact that our Italian vocabulary mainly consisted... More

Great pizza and salads at this little restaurant in the heart of Taormina. We stopped here for a quick lunch after walking through the beautiful cobblestone streets all day and had a wonderful meal. I recommend this restaurant more for lunch so you can people watch from the patio as you eat!

We should have noticed that it was one of the only restaurants open for lunch at 4pm. Yes, it was a mistake but we didn't know how big the mistake was. Our second mistake was to assume that because we are in Sicily and because of the large amount of seafood dishes in the menu, they would serve fresh seafood.... More

We were hungry but the pizza was definitely a great one. loved it!! sitting in the middle of the market with the bustling sounds made it a very enjoyable experience and the service was good.

I requested a dish that I was told was not avaliable then I see it served on table next to me. Service was horrible but my plate did taste very good. Very expensive plates compared to where I have eaten in the region for the past 12 days. Don't bother requesting ice, cheese or bread you will not get it.
