Great food and across from the best Granita. If they have the seasonal pumpkin pizza, it is a must. Also, one of the most reasonably priced restaurants in town.

This is a great place: a manageable menu with great dishes cooked by a great chef! You need to make reservations, or have patience, but it is definitely worth your while. While you're eating you can stare at the range of celebrities that have dined there... We stayed at Taromina for three nights and ate there every night!

We had three pizzas here. They were all good but nothing special. Service was fine. It's an nice place, pretty busy, but ok if you want something pretty standard.

On arrival at this restaurant, we asked for a table of four but they dis not have any available. Because of this, the staff moved some chairs and tables to suit or needs, and gave us some drinks free of charge for the inconvenience, usually worth €5.00. Once we had chosen, the food quickly arrived. The pizzas were very large... More

The waiters had obviously just invested in new phone contracts, their desire to look at screens being greater than serving us as mere customers. The swordfish had long since had sight of the sea and the sliced lemons were gnarled at the edges, having been cut at least a couple of days earlier. We kept looking at the restaurant across...

this place has received a lot of bad reviews lately, so I thought it was important to post that we found the service to be attentive and the food worth it, although expensive. We enjoyed our meals and we enjoyed all the people watching on this busy corner. And the best place for granita is just across the street.

I went there with some friends and we ordered 4 passito. It was good but the glasses were really too tiny... An extrasmall size I would say. While the bill was extralarge: 28€!! Better not to order passito here...
