Slightly more expensive than the average trattoria, but the food was really excellent, with some wonderful twists: my son loved the pumpkin topped pizza, the Etna mushroom ravioli was wonderful and I very much enjoyed by involuto - really wonderful twists on he he classics, much recommended by locals and visited by film stars, to judge by all the photos:...

Went here for lunch as it was conveniently located and also close to Bam Bar, where we headed right after for a granita. Nice, large terrace and efficient service are definite pros. Decided to try the pasta with sardines here and it was very good; pizza was also tasty, as was the bottle of white wine. Popular with Italians as... More

Reading through the other reviews and watching the video showing in the restaurant of all the celebrities that have been photographed here would make me question the place. However, we had a lovely meal with very quick and efficient service. The restaurant was full when we arrived and we were told to go inside and wait 5 minutes. We were... More

I was told by a friend that this was meant to be the best pizza restaurant in Taormina! The food was very average the man front of house, possibly the owner?was rude and arrogant, and gave me the impression unless you were a 'celebrity' he didn't want to know- the tv in the restaurant with videos of him schmoozing with...

We have chosen this restaurant because it was not on the main shopping street but had a nice terrace and good choice on the menu. However service is very bad and the food was just OK, nothing more. The price was very high (it is Taormina of course), too high for what we got. Waiting for a coffee took so... More

Very busy, popular with locals and tourists. Frequented by many celebs, judging by all the photos on the wall! Lovely, freshly cooked pizza from the oven.

We came here for lunch and decided to order pizza as it is an Italian speciality. Very good pizza and is not too big and neither too small, I would say a perfect size to eat enough and not be too full. Worth the money!

Some of the reviews are not favorable, however, we were recently at La Botte, and thoroughly enjoyed it1 The food was great, service and ambiance perfect! The owner was lovely and very attentive to our needs. Very pleased and would definitely visit again.

The local fish was fresh and perfectly prepared. Be careful with the english menu...it's sometimes translated literally. If they called it caponata, we'd know what it was, but if it's described as a salad of celery, olives capers and eggplants, you will be surprised. The patio is small and seats are close together, but it feels airy and open. It... More

We asked our concierge for a nice caudal dinner and we were not disappointed. Apparently the restaurant has been around since 1972. We shared a simple dinner of prosciutto melons and a pizza. The restaurant was packed and has lots of photos on the wall of the owners with celebrities over the years. The owners son took care of us... More
