Great pizza and excellent service

We went here for lunch on our first day in Taormina. Pizza was the best I had in Sicily and my girlfriend had a great tuna pasta. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

My wife found this restaurant on TripAdvisor and we made a point of going there on our cruise excursion to Taormina in late May. We stopped in for lunch with our family and friends and were seated in the beautiful outdoor patio. Our lunch was delicious and the service was top notch. When it came time for dessert, we asked...

Really delicious pizzas made here. As well as a full menu - try the meatballs wrapped in lemon leaves. New Gourmet Store feature high quality local products and they serve some of the best olive oil in town on the table to dip your bread in. Good wine selection. Friendly service. Make reservations for high season.

We dined in this restaurant twice. We sampled both pasta and meat dishes for our mains and we couldn't fault any of the dishes. The starters are enormous so are best shared. On both occasions the wine we ordered was unavailable but a very good alternative was offered on each occasion. The device is excellent and this restaurant offers very... More

We return to this excellent restaurant time and again. Just off the main corso in Taormina and with a far more relaxed atmosphere than some of the nearby places, this restaurant serves really good food (favourite place for pizza!). The service is exceptional and the shop on site is well stocked and offers local and Italian delicacies.

Happened upon this restaurant on our last visit to Taormina and decided to see if was still as good as the first time. Indeed it was, we had an excellent meal with local beer & wine, must say their 'chips' rather nice too.... The staff are welcoming & pleasant and the service is good too.

We came across this place by accident on the way to another restaurant and decided to give it a try as it was in a nice location down a little side street. They didn't have a table available immediately but we waited in the bar with a complimentary drink and had a look through the menu. The staff were really... More

We are just back from a trip to Taormina, where we happened upon this little gem. We were greeted on arrival by Emmanuel, who gave us a romantic table for 2. Nothing was too much trouble for him, he was fantastic. My Husband had a fabulous pizza, and I would highly recommend the tuna steak (was divine). The food, service,... More
