wonderful home made pasta

We had dinner and lunch and both times ate the fresh made pasta. It was authentic and obviously home made. As to the other dishes I cannot say but the person beside me sent back her fish and the desserts were uninspiring. My season fruit dish was very poor

I am very dissapointed to see some negative reviews for this restaurant! The food is a very good high quality and prices were excellent! Staff is very quick and attentive. The owner of the restaurant is very attentive to all his clients. I was very surprised and pleased that we also got "on the house" a typical Sicilian drink and... More

I find hard to believe the bad reviews on this page - that place is excellent - I love it - everything there was good: the location, the ambiance, the food, the service. We like it so much we went there several times during our 6 days stay including for the New Year's Eve dinner. I would definitely go back... More

We ate here and had the fried shrimp which were the best we ever had. The calamari was very good as well. They were very pricey on the beer, but we have no complaints about the great food. The service was friendly and efficient, and it was very cozy and a cute place to dine. Love the Cyclops motif.

We have visited many restaurants during our trip to Sicily and this one stands out as the best choice. Food is good ( not the best, but good!). The service is extremely friendly. They not only serve you but also try to cheer you up. In no way offensive though... The guitar player was one of the best I had... More

Excellent food and wine, very good service and in a great location. Tried two other restaurants which were also very good but went to this one three times in the five nights we were staying in Taormina. Would highly recommend despite the mixed reviews.
