This is the only restaurant we chose to return to during our week in Taormina. First visit I had sea food risotto which was delicious, generous & fresh & boyfriend had lamb chops - well seasoned & tasty. We were pleasantly surprised by the bill too - not too pricey for the quality. On return I had the capricosa pizza... More

We ate in shelter on our last night in taormina, it's a pity we only discovered it on our last night. Food and the service is exquisite. We will be back on our next visit.

There are quite a few busy restaurants in the area close to Shelter. They work hard to get you in, and the follow up after you are seated is reasonably good. We ordered a pizza and a chicken. The pizza was good and the chicked was quite ok. We could definitely go back for a second try. Before and after... More

I know Taormina is a tourist town, hence prices are dearer that the rest of the south of Italy. I had the Fagottini Salmone (a kind of ravioli filled with salmon, €14,50) with a "pistacchio" sauce. It was really plain, I couldn't even taste the salmon and the sauce was a cream with some mince pistacchio over it. The best... More
