Perfectly acceptable but not special

Large restaurant with plenty of outside seating which would appear to go for a cheap and cheerful customer. My pizza was fine and service was pleasant enough.

Just had a fairly average meal here. The main problem is the staff ; totally disinterested and more concerned in fussing and pandering to their regulars at the expense of visitors from more distant shores. I'm always very suspicious of an establishment that has a wall to wall display of photos of staff/management with "celebrities". Remember, everyone is your customer... More

Just got back from the restaurant. Read the menu before going in and thought €24 for a steak - this must be a goer (treat time for me). The inside is plastered with celebrities who ate there, so gained more confidence about the place. I ended up paying €40 for an ok salad, a ridiculous steak with chips (I ordered... More

Not a romantic or intimate dining experience however the food and service is alright. If you dine here you want go away jumping for joy but like wise you want experience bad food from what we had. It is in a great location therefore easy to find. The choice of food is good and suits all types of dinners. Nice... More

My husband and I were in Sicily for a weeks holiday and wanted to eat before going back to our hotel early one evening. We stepped away from the main street and found this restaurant. There were only two tables occupied when we went in but it was full by the time we left. Although we only one course each... More

We dined as a very large group of 40+ people. So not a perfect situation to give fair feedback. However, I wished the staff better explain what our food options were. They asked if we would like "fish or meat". The meat ended up being boar shank (wild pig). It was very average and not many people ate their boar... More

Average at best. Service was poor, staff were not interested at all and reluctant to change anything they got wrong. Food was ok, but wouldn't go back.

We stopped here for a drink, with the possibility of lunch. Our principle decision was based on the fact that there was free Wifi. After trying for half an hour to get onto the Wifi we decided to leave. We tried one final time as another diner who was logged on, left and we miraculously got onto the Wifi. So... More

We visited Taormina and looked at several menus from outdoor restaurants in the area today, and settled on this one; while the prices seemed a little high, the outdoor tables were in a pretty spot so we chose to go here. Although only about half the tables were occupied, we were offered a table right next to the door to... More
