The reviews given are correct and them some. What started as a nice champagne reception at the beginning turned in to a battle with my toilet at the end! Greeted by waiter and was told there would be a short wait so was offered a glass of champagne. No problems so far as in my opinion a busy restaraunt is... More

We reserved a table earlier in the evening but were disappointed with the outcome . We were given a table at the back of the outdoor seating area , cramped amongst other much larger tables . The food was good , wine list likewise , but overall the seating that we were given spoilt the evening . Given that the... More

We ate here on our first night in Taormina & thank goodness we didn't use this as a benchmark for other pizza's! The restaurant was incredibly busy so we we're shown to a table inside, the waiter was at best surly when taking our order, I wonder if this was because we only ordered pizza or because we were not...

The service was excellent, we had lobster ravioli with a cherry tomato sauce and returned to have it again. In total we visited 3 times with the same excellent food, wine and service, the waiter actually told us he had some bad news and had run out of the wine we had previously, however the substitute was also excellent.

Busy, bustling restaurant well worth finding off the main Corso. Service was very friendly and food good, and not too pricey. We felt very comfortable and had an enjoyable evening. I think we were lucky to get a table at about 7.30pm, which was a bit cramp, so I suggest booking if you know your plans. A travelling band arrived,... More

There are places that serve better food in Taormina (see other reviews) at more reasonable prices. Our dining experience was spoiled by very slow service and the fact that they "lost" our first course order. Having waited patiently for an age the waiter did at least notice we were still waiting and went to check with the kitchen staff. It... More

Second year to Taormina, second visit to this Restaurant. Food is excellent, Quite expensive but hey ho, holidays are what its all about. There is only one downside to this review, and that is the Italian people don't seem to mind smoking during meals, which if you are a non smoker this came be a problem. We are non smokers... More

We visited this restaurant due to having walked past and thinking that it was always busy so it must be good, we ordered our drinks, pasta starters and pizzas. Drinks arrived quickly followed by pasta dishes which were decent, we waited for our pizzas only to see other customers come in and get theirs, half an hour after we had... More
