Good meal with friendly service

A restaurant that is frequented by locals is always a good sign! We had a lovely meal here and would have gone back again but it was closed. It's winter opening hours seemed a bit haphazard.

Probably the worst pizza I'll ever had. The pizza was dry and really without taste. The "spicy salami" was not close to "spicy" at all. The bread we got was probably a week old (or at least a few days). The only good was that they had non-alcoholic beer. The walls in the restaurant were covered in photos of supposedly... More

Had lunch here after it was recommended by the owner of a deli-type shop in Taormina, so we were expecting good things. I had caponata and Sicilian-style sardines (stuffed with pine nuts) and my friend had pizza and salad. Why serve sad looking green beans and frozen carrots with the sardines?? The caponata was ok. The pizza was disappointing. The... More

We stopped off here for late lunch, having found many other restaurants busy. The setting is perfect, with a nice patio area outside in a small square. However, we were never really made to feel welcome. In fact I would say they were in a hurry so they could close for the day. Food was not bad, could have been... More

The terrace is a really nice spot for a Dinner. But Even you care more about atmosphere than food like I often do I want to encourage you to move on! First, the Price is not justified regarding quality and size. We ordered antipasti and we got 5 thin slices in total of 3 Kinds of prociutto - for 14... More

We loved this place. Eat there a few times during the day. Always delicious. No problem sharing one pizza between two people if you're not all that hungry. They do a novel pizza called American Pizza. It has the usual cheese etc but also cut up hotdog sausage AND a few chips cooked into the pizza. We found it amusing... More

We ate here and found the menu good, the outside terrace charming, but the execution short of the mark. It was also quite pricey.

Food was Ok-ish but service not so good. Seems to be a problem for Taormina generally - too popular; they can do what they like & they'll still get the custom because all those visitors need to eat & drink somewhere so standards slip. It was the only place in Sicily where we got a €5 per person cover charge... More

We had very poor service here at lunch time . They forgot our starter so we waited half an hour for that and then they got our pizza order wrong ( they were clearly not paying us attention and so wrote Parma instead of Norma ) . Pizza was good when it came though .
