" Lazy Service"

La Botte is without doubt a very popular restaurant in Taormina and I would guess that many people are drawn in, on the assumption that if a place is busy, it must be good. The restaurant looks very cosy and inviting but the same cannot be said of the staff, who one could only describe as being... read more

Bad and extremely rude service. Food that doesn´t taste anything. A tourist trap. A serious warning to tourists: find yourself another place if you do not want to get badly disappointed.

We came here for lunch and waited 40 mins for our food to arrive only for them not to deliver the children's pizza. When we asked they discovered it had been delivered to another table. We waited 15 minutes for a replacement without so much as an apology or offer of a drink.

Perfectly decent food. These guys turn tables faster than a fast thing, it's busy and they have a system of a lot of staff to push you through. Can't say I blame them though as Taorima is heaving in the summer, bear this in mind and you will find it fine. However, if it's a long romantic meal you are... More

Our meal here was great with a fantastic extensive menu. Its a shame their pizzas arent the same back home! It was great value for money and the rustic chips are a must!. Even though it was busy (which it was every night) they still found us a table and the service was great.

My husband and I just stumbled upon this place while exploring Taormina. It was delicious and we were very pleased with our meal, the service, and the price! We split a caprese salad, water, beer, and a calzone. What a meal to remember! They split the calzone for us and it was a perfect ratio of cheese to sauce, to... More

We made the mistake of coming here since the guide from our travel agency recommended this place. We had two pizzas for lunch which were ok, but the problems started after I asked for the bill. It never showed up, and the waiters just kept gossiping by the doors and took no eye contact with me, when I was trying... More

Where to begin......clueless service with several attempts to get a simple order fulfilled, endless waiting between plates and when it arrives your hoping to get out of there as soon as possible.....wasn't going to bother reviewing as we should of know better than to sit down without looking it up, but you have to wonder about some of the good...

Disappointing visit, to a recommended venue! Food was good though, but more pricy than surrounding restaurants, but higher in quality and taste! The service was horrible, 4 different waiters, 2 minutes after finishing the starter the main arrived! If you are looking for an attentive waiter and good service, this is not the place for you!

We went here for lunch. Beef carpaccio was lovely but €15 euro. Sardines were very tasty. For dinner we had mussels steak and lamb food was hot and delicious. It's a family run restaurant and mama keeps a good eye on everything. Staff friendly and helpful. Would definitely go again. Prices are much the same as in Ireland and work... More
