Dissapointing with poor service

My husband and I had dinner here during our recent holiday in Taormina. Firstly, I should say that it is very difficult to have a bad dining experience in Taormina. Most of the restaurants have good service and amazing food. This was our only bad experience during our week there. I would agree that... read more

We asked the worker at the Gondola station for a recommendation of where to eat in Taormina. We were not disappointed! Though is looked empty from the outside, the place was packed inside - with many locals. The food was great and the atmosphere was too.

Expensive, our most costly meal out and not very substantial, perhaps I should have had a pizza! Some nice staff, but the lady who took the money was a bit intimidating. As ever in Taormina to find a restaurant which is reasonably priced is hard and this was no exception. The food was good but costly, we ate 3 dishes... More

We sat in the shaded outside area, which was charming, and allowed us to watch the world go by as we ate. Only stopped in for a bit of lunch. Food was very nice, we left happy. Wish in a way we had gone for dinner, as the menu looked like it had some really good options, especially a lot... More

This restaurant has a good sized outside eating area with plenty of shade. The menu has a good selection and the food when eventually served was of good quality. We went for lunch, it was not too busy so no excuse for the long delay for delivery of our meals and then delivering the wrong meal (this happened to more... More

We specifically came here for dinner as the restaurant is owned by the same people who own the guest house we were staying in (Villa Barone) and we were therefore offered a discount! Glad we visited as the ambiance and food were lovely. We wanted a simple rustic traditional italian restaurant, and that is exactly what we got. I have... More

Good quality food, well-cooked. The pasta is marvellous and the fish very nice. Service a bit surly though and they kept trying to push more on to you to ramp up the bill. Decent though

I've given 2 stars as the place was clean and we didn't die from food poisoning. Unfortunately this was our worst experience in a restaurant. Miserable waiters skulked about who were too frightening to approach. They didn't bother pouring water for us but they did for everyone else. I ordered ravioli with spinach but they didn't have spinach. I had... More

We had dinner at La Botte. You sit between the pictures of all the celebrities which have visited this restaurant in the past 40 years. It is a family run place. The service is quick and very professional and friendly. The food is OK but not very different from other restaurants in Taormina, but this restaurant has a certain vibe... More

We stopped one day for lunch as we had been told to give the restaurant a try. We both had pizza which were much the same as those we had eaten elsewhere. It was fine but we didn't feel there was anything special about it and, whilst the service was ok, we didn't feel it was worth any special recommendation... More
