I wish we had found this restaurant earlier in our holiday since we would have certainly gone back. It was small but bustling and the service was excellent. We had lovely smoked fish and linguine al nero di seppia. People near us were eating pizza which also looked great

Good food and ditto wine - very good service who know a lot about wines - small terrace outside - just try the swordfish rolls (real Sicilian dish) - we will come back - thats why the street name in the title - original name Shelter! Top!

Taormina is not short of places to eat - some are too fancy, others too slow, some are way overpriced. Some are just the right mix of good food, good service and reasonable prices. Shelter is one of these. Just off the main tourist drag (30 seconds down a narrow alley), it has a couple of dining rooms and a... More

We ate in Shelter restaurant for dinner on the last day of our holiday. It was the best meal that we had in Taormina by far - and there was stiff competition! Its easy to find - just off a side road from the Corso Umberto. A bit pricey (husband had steak for about €26) but it was worth it... More

We found this little restaurant by chance while exploring the side streets. The service was fine, but what made it stand out was the quality and choice of the food available. Can particularly recommend the pasta dishes, the best I've ever tasted! Other small things, like the complimentary bread and Prosecco (if you don't order a starter), as well as... More

We found this little pizzeria by accident and we were persuaded to give it a try by the waiter who was out on the sidewalk. The food was marvelous and we sat along the sidewalk so we were able to 'people watch' all through our meal. The food was hot and very fresh, the Antipasto was plentiful for two people... More

Top notch care and attention allied to the best food in the town. In our town we have a restaurant where, as regular customers, we can discuss our meal with the chefs. We hardly expected it on holiday but it was provided, in spades, and the results were spectacular. If you are in the area don't miss this gem.

The wine was excellent. In a resort only for 5 nights we would never eat... More
