excellent food and service

The staff know how to make you feel at ease. Very friendly. And the food is very well prepared. They have a lot of dishes with fresh tuna, and it all tasted really good. Recommended!

Our dining experience last night was not only down to the excellent service and food but also a huge success for TripAdvisor. I must thank Joseph T from Buffalo for his precise description and recommendation. On arrival you're given a complimentary prosecco along with the menus which is a welcome other restaurants should copy and started the great dining experience.... More

This place was recommended to us by fellow guests (not by the hotel) and turned out to be the best finds for us during our short stay. Good wine selection and some of the most innovative food we enjoyed in Sicily esp the capponata.

My wife and I had a great meal here. They offer a glass of pride comes to start off which is a nice touch. I had the octopus salad to start which was delicious and we both had pizzas which were perfect really. Would love to go back another time. The waiter was excellent and we even bought some of...

We discovered this little restaurant 2 nights into our stay, it is situated down a little side street and quite easy to miss. Also you have to wrestle a bit with the staff at the neighbouring restaurant (Gamberino Rosso) to get there ( some restaurants have waiters touting for business). We sat outside and although busy the place had a... More

Plenty of great reviews of this restaurant on TA. We followed our phone sat nav and when it said we had arrived, the restaurant was no where to be seen! Turns out the restaurant was behind the main stretch- we couldn't see a sign. Glad we found it as the food was lovely! Upon arrival we got a free glass... More

We dined here for dinner on our third evening in Taormina, so we had done some serious review of the local dining offerings. The prime reasons for stopping here included reasonable prices and a menu which included a Sicilian specialty I had not seen in all the menus we read. My partner ordered a margherita pizza, large with creamy bufalo... More
